Looking for Wisers Very Old

Postby NikoLa » Thu Jul 07, 2005 9:55 pm

My husband is a huge fan of Wisers Very Old, but I can't find it anywhere! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The Wiser's 18yr old is wonderfull rye, best Cdn. rye i've tasted. It is readily available at LCBO, but that doesn't help much for those looking south of the boarder. I'm sure it's marketed in the U.S.A.
Have you tried an online liquor broker?

Thanks for the reply. I've searched online but can only find the 10 year available. Any specific websites would be helpful.

It's easy to find in Chicago (but I have yet to try it). Both Binny's and Sam's have it in stock, but only Binny's has it on the website.

I hope you find it. I also enjoy it and have a bottle open right now.

Harry, have you tried the Century Reserve 21 year old Rye?

No, I haven't! The LCBO/Vintages doesn't usually carry it but as luck would have it, they received a boatload of it on June 11th. I'll have to pick up a bottle for comparison.

Not that this necessarily helps you in Minnesota, but I buy my Wisers Very Old in Kentucky. Ohio only carries the Deluxe.

I too love Wiser's Very old. I was living in Jacksonville Fl. for 10 years and the owner of the place where I purchased my Crown Royal steered me onto Wiser's. No comparison, both better and cheaper (IMHO). Try the above site. I sent an email to the contact place and actually got an answer. I need to make a pilgrimage to Georgia to get a couple three bottles.

I've read the Corby Distillers page listing the states in which Wiser's is available, and it's not entirely accurate. As I wrote earlier, I purchased both the 10 and 18 year expressions in Kentucky even though the state doesn't appear on the list.

I'm definitely going to have to get a bottle of the Wiser's Very Old now. I have a DeLuxe (10yo) open right now, and it's quite a worthy pour.
