1 of 1200 bottles. First Release. Mister Sam Tribute Whiskey is a highly limited blend of Sazerac's finest Canadian and American whiskeys. It is named in honour of Samuel Bronfman, Seagram's first master blender, who revolutionized the art of blending as he built his Seagram Company into a massive spirits empire. The whiskey was bottled at Sazerac's Old Montreal Distillery in Montreal, Quebec. This bottle is the 2019 first release with only 1200 bottles ever produced. This barrel strength blend is bottled at 133.8 proof (66.9% abv). The whiskey has a complex profile with notes of dark cherries, baked apples, wood varnish, crème brûlée, butterscotch, maple syrup, cinnamon, chocolate, and unlit cigar tobacco. The palate is spicy with rye spice traits, cherries, orange rinds, cinnamon, clove, chili powder, spearmint, shaved ginger root, and a delicate and floral rosewater note.
