The Wiseman Straight Bourbon and The Wiseman Rye have been crafted by Master Blender John Rhea, a 40-year industry veteran and Bourbon Hall of Famer who came out of retirement to create these award-winning spirits.

The Wiseman Straight Bourbon was awarded Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2022 and 2023 and is described as offering caramel aromas, warming allspice, a delicate sprinkle of citrus and a subtle hint of oak. The Bourbon can be sipped neat or used to elevate your favourite Bourbon cocktails.

With The Wiseman Rye you have a rich and spicy nose with aromas of fresh rye bread, hints of caramel and cinnamon and a hint of English walnut.

At the heart of these exceptional spirits stands the legendary Bourbon Hall of Fame Master Blender John Rhea.

After an illustrious 40-year career receiving countless accolades, John came out of retirement in 2021 to lend his vast knowledge and expertise to The Wiseman and The Wiseman Rye. With an unwavering passion for the craft and an impeccable palate, John carefully curated the finest ingredients to create extraordinary drinking experiences.

John said: “I found the one thing that would bring me out of retirement… the opportunity to serve as a steward to The Wiseman Bourbon and The Wiseman Rye, I am honoured to have this opportunity to contribute to their legacy.

“Australia’s passion for premium spirits is undeniable, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce The Wiseman and The Wiseman Rye to this discerning market. These spirits embody the rich traditions of bourbon and rye craftsmanship, and we can’t wait to share these exceptional spirits with whiskey enthusiasts across Australia.”

The Wiseman Straight Bourbon and The Wiseman Rye are available now through The Whisky List.
