The Sazerac Company has unveiled its third new Canadian whisky product in less than two years.

R&R Reserve now joins a pair of spirits released early last year, Caribou Crossing Single Barrel and Royal Canadian Small Batch.

The new brand is an extension of Sazerac’s Rich & Rare brand, which the distiller says "has posted the largest case growth of any U.S. bottled Canadian Whisky brand over the past three years."

R&R Reserve is a blend of reserve barrel whiskies from Sazerac’s stock in Canada of more than 200,000 barrels of Canadian whisky.

“We wanted to introduce a product that had nice depth and complexity and felt like some of the great Canadian Whiskies of 20 and 30 years ago,” said Drew Mayville, Sazerac’s master blender.

R&R Reserve retails for between $9.99 and $13.99 for a 750ml bottle.
