Bottled by La Maison du Whisky under their “Ex Libris” label. It is a small blend of 40-year-old whiskies distilled in 1982 by JP Wiser’s in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. These are corn whiskies aged in Speyside casks married with a small percentage of rye whiskey matured in quarter casks that previously held peated Scotch Whisky. Only 150 bottles in the US, 480 total worldwide.

This bottle “The Apprenticeship” is named after Mordecai Richler’s 1959 classic novel, the Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz.


Holly’s Tasting Notes: Kettle corn, sweet toffee, syrup, vanilla, and some sap and pine. The palate blossoms with thick whip cream up front followed by earthy rye spice, burnt caramel corn, and cracker jack popcorn. A dash of earthy peat bogs are present with some time with air but otherwise, the peated quarter casks are very subtle.
