    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    Wow - did anyone else have that climatic "dum dum DUM" after reading that?? Very curious to hear more on this. I've only got the one bottle I just bought, but hoping some folks have older/newer to compare. Mine certainly looks nothing like the pic posted with that lovely, cloudiness. So maybe it is more the case of finding older batches?

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    I re-read this thread and decided to go pull out my bottle - I bought this maybe 18 months ago? Hard to remember ...

    Neck Label: Batch 2, Bottle No. 1961

    Printed on Front (no label): Jefferson's Straight Rye Whiskey, Aged 10 years, 100% Rye, 47% (94 proof)

    No back label

    Printed on a glued on label on the side: Standard Government Alcohol Warning, Imported by Castle Brands, Produced in Canada, Bottled by McLain & Kyne, Louisville, KY

    There is no "NCF" label on the bottle, or mention of it being filtered or not. Since there are no paper labels on the front or back, you get a good view holding it up to the light - it is cloudy at room temperature, or at least it is far from crystal clear, so if it is filtered at all, it is very lightly filtered. My guess is this is NCF, just as David D. said in his email.

    What batch number are they up to?

    If you put some water in NCF whiskey it ought to cloud up, right?

    yes, but I haven't opened it yet. I could pop it in the fridge or freezer to see what happens ...

    Oh, the freezer by all means, it comes from a cold country.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    I have Batch 41, no NCF sticker, Produced in Canada. It has been opened, so I shook it and held up to the light. It looks like some small bits are floating, but not like a shredded kleenex . It's very good rye, even better at $35/bottle, but if I ever see one of the NCF bottles, it's coming home with me!

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    Bought my first bottle of his last week and no NCF label but I got to say it is onw fine rye and at a price I can really enjoy a lot of it.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    I've got two bottles next to each other that both say "Produced in Canada." One is batch 5 and has the non-filtered sticker. The other is batch 41 and doesn't have the sticker. There's a HUGE difference in the cloudiness of them. The one with the sticker looks like the swamp thing could be hiding out in there. The other looks pretty normal/clear, with only a few small bubbles. It would be easier to see the difference in daylight, but I used the flashlight to show it as best as I could.

    Either the ones that don't have the sticker really are chill-filtered, or certain barrels came out way more cloudy than others so they put the stickers on to keep people from leaving them on the shelves thinking something was wrong with them.

    Edited to add: I'm not trying to call K&L or David D out here. From my experience they're great, honest guys and I'm sure they're just passing along what they've been told.

    I vote for chill filtering, if that's what the distillery decides to do it's not like Castle Brands has a choice in the matter.
