Gooderham and Worts Four Grain Canadian Whisky Review

Welcome to the least respected and mostly misunderstood whisky category…

Several weeks ago, we had our Canadian Whisky expectations shattered and then reassembled via an extended podcasting session with the great Dave Mitton of Corby Spirit & Wine. During this session, Dave led us through a tasting of three Canadian Whiskies, one of which is the subject of today’s video, i.e. Gooderham and Worts Four Grain. According to Dave, this is the whisky that immediately puts a smile on a Canadian Whisky Naysayers face.

Below is a bit of information about this whisky taken directly from the Northern Border Collection website:

Gooderham & Worts was built on two things: guts and grains. Through sheer will, determination and ingenuity, these millers turned distillers brought their strengths together to forge something truly special. Today, the smooth drinking four-grain whisky they inspired is a nod to their grit, resolve and legacy while reflecting the best parts of the city and country they helped build.

The combination of both pot and column still whiskies results in flavours both light and heavy – modern, bold and complex. This rich blend makes for a whisky that would’ve made William Gooderham and James Worts proud – and one that couldn’t have happened anywhere else in the world. 44.4% ABV.

Full disclosure, we too were Canadian Whisky skeptics before talking to Dave, but this had everything to do with poor Canadian Whisky selections on our part over the years, i.e. exposure to bottom shelf whiskies vs. the much more premium options that Dave was kind enough to share with us.
