Still not sold on flavoured whiskies? Okay, here’s Wiser’s master blender, Don Livermore, to convince you: “Flavoured whisky offers a new taste experience, whether you’re a seasoned fan or new to whisky.”
What’s he mean by a new taste experience? Well, Wiser’s Spiced Torched Toffee builds on the sweet, caramelized notes of Wiser’s and brings out the toffee flavours while balancing with some spicy notes. Wiser’s Spiced Vanilla, on the other hand, balances lightly accentuated vanilla notes with rye spice.
So, why flavour whisky at all? According to Livermore, “People are more curious to try new things these days, whether it’s spicy food or new cocktails. It also tends to be a bit smoother, making it the perfect way to get into whisky if you’ve never tried it.”
