Mister Sam Tribute Whiskey
Mister Sam Tribute Whiskey, named in honor of Samuel Bronfman, is a highly-limited blend of Sazerac’s finest Canadian and American whiskeys.
The mighty Sam Bronfman, Seagram’s first master blender, revolutionized the art of blending as he built his Seagram Company into a massive spirits empire. Our Master Blender, Drew Mayville, comes from this Seagram master blender lineage. Before he came to Sazerac, Mayville was the last master blender at Seagram’s and his mentor was Seagram Master Blender Art Dawe, who worked directly with Sam Bronfman. Mayville created this perfect blend through experimentation and precision and it is fittingly bottled at our Old Montreal Distillery in Montreal, Quebec.
Mister Sam is a part of the rare and exclusive Sazerac Legacy de Forge collection. This is a collection of Sazrac's finest and most sought-after spirits.
“The nose is cigar box, pipe tobacco, Madeira cake, and toffee in that order of ascent, but then there’s a rush of oaky vanilla, limestone, flint and sweetened breakfast cereal. Hearty but elegant, woody but grainy, and floral yet spicy, which is quite an achievement. The entry is high octane and scintillating followed by lush tastes of raisins, prunes, mince pie, candied walnut, chocolate covered cherry, heather honey, toasted marshmallow, praline, nougat and pecan pie. The aftertaste underscores the attributes at aroma, entry and midpalate, bringing them into a grand finale that is hugely satisfying.” - F. Paul Pacult
