Liquormen's Ol' Dirty Canadian Whisky

liquormen-s-ol-dirty-canadian-whisky.jpgReleased in 2016, Liquormen's Ol' Dirty Canadian Whisky is a sourced whisky from an unnamed distillery in Alberta then bottled by Rock Spirits (a blending and bottling subsidiary of the Newfoundland Labrador Liquor Commission) for Dartmouth Spirits Inc. - the IRL drinks business side of the Trailer Park Boys media group. 

According to the label notes, the Trailer Park Boys launched this whisky to honour the legacy of liquor thieving bandits from the old West. Bottled at 40% ABV and aged for just three years in charred, white oak casks; it's a young whisky. 

While I was bemused by the idea of grabbing a bottle to play the home game, yet given the Boys' other attempts at making and selling booze I didn't have high hopes for the result

    I agree with Tom's forthright statement (who is agreeing with you, so I guess we all agree, a rarity for the internet) - one of the very best Canadian whiskies currently in the marketplace. I picked up my most recent bottle on clearance at $52. At that price, definitely worth the premium over Lot 40 but with Lot 40 currently on sale for $35, Dissertation has a little more competition.

    Couldn't agree more - one of the very best Canadian whiskies currently in the marketplace.

  • Tom Alexander commented on Dewar's 12 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky:

    I agree, this was a surprisingly good whisky, though not as complex as Johnnie Walker Black (another 12 year old blend). I tried Dewar's 18 Year Old in a bar in NYC once - that was pretty great, hopefully it shows up in the LCBO one day.
