    If I'm intrigued by the flavor, as I am with WhistlePig, then I'll have to be in the camp of 'not caring where it was distilled, bottled, labeled, etc.'

    This is a fascinating spirit, and will only have NEAT.

    Re: Wistlepig rye!

    Here are the relevant numbers for 2010, from today's DISCUS report:

    American Blended Whiskey -- 5.398 million cases
    Bourbon & Tennessee Whiskey -- 15.443 million cases
    (20.841 million cases)

    Canadian Whisky -- 15.809 million cases

    This is U.S. sales only.

    So if you just compare Canadian to Bourbon/Tennessee, Canadian wins narrowly, but if you include American blended whiskey, so it's all American-made whiskey versus all Canadian-made whiskey, then American wins by a mile.

    USA! USA! USA!

    I can't help but join in an old fashioned USA chant...

    USA! USA! USA!

    However, it is still kind of disappointing/embarrassing that the "official" spirit of the United States is outsold by Candian Whiskey here in the USA. I don't even want to see the Scotch numbers...

    Ebo, try some Canadian Club 10yr. It is my favorite hands down. They have it in every liquor store in Stark county. It runs about 15.95 a 750!

    Re: Wistlepig rye!

    The DISCUS report also confirms what many have subjectively noticed this past year with the super premium segment in Bourbon and Tennessee whiskey revenues increasing by 17% to 161 million. Most notably evident in this area I'd say by PVW 15, BTAC and MM 46 making for empty shelf space within days.
