    Gooderham & Worts Batch #4, any info?

    Hi all,
    I recently stumbled across a stash of Gooderham & Worts 'Natural Small Batch' Batch #4 Canadian Whisky. Other than some general info about the now-defunct G&W distillery, I've found precious little about this particular bottling. Anyone know about when it was bottled? Anything else? I've tried it and it's quite good in my opinion. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a Glengoyne expression with a little more pepper and spice on the finish.

    have fun,
    aaron

    Occasionally over the years this whisky has been released although I haven't seen it locally (in Canada) for some years now. Perhaps a new batch has been issued. As Chuck has noted in another regard, Pernod Ricard makes Canadian Club but the brand is owned and sold by Beam Global and I would think this is so also for this brand since Gooderham & Worts was bought by Canadian Club in the 1920's. This whisky, based on my last tastings some years ago, is a high quality version of the Canadian whisky style, i.e., relatively mild and easy-going but with good flavor notes. Perhaps though a new batch is offering another take on the palate.

    It's bottled by McCormick's Distillery (which doesn't distill anymore) of Weston, MO. The label indicates that it's 10 barrels vatted together to form a 'batch'. Other than that, there's nothing else. I did find out that it was originally released as a trio of Canadian whiskies alongside Lot 40 and Pike's Creek, neither of which I've seen anywhere.

    have fun,
    aaron
