    Even less is known about later bottlings so it seems to be the one to get. Not Canadian whiskey in the typical sense of the word. Rather it is 100% rye whiskey distilled and aged in Canada that likely was intended for use with other whiskey in creating the blend for a Canadian whiskey but instead got bottled in its pure 100% rye form by an American NDP.

    Yes, it was/is intended as a flavoring whisky in blends, just like the 95% rye from MGP.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either one, Paul. I've tasted both the Canadian NCF labeled one and the non-labeled one and they are virtually identical in aroma and flavor. I even put a couple of friends through a blind tasting and they couldn't taste any real difference either. Having said all that, if I had a choice between the two I would still aim for the Canadian non-chill filtered one, as even less is known about the provenance of the more recent bottlings.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    picked up a bottle of this today, and on first try I'm really impressed. No mention of NFC or Canada on this one, but if this isn't the same juice as the whistlepig I can't tell, but theres a good bet than I can't tell the difference between 100% ryes?

    100% ryes from the same distiller should be kin.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    If they don't list a separate source, then it has to be from the same state it was bottled in.

    I saw some special store selections of this. The label doesn't say Canada. I plan on going back, maybe Monday.

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    I bought a bottle of the Jefferson's 10 Year Rye today here in Florida.. I had to pay $39.99.. More than I would have like to have paid.. I have not tried this Rye yet.. Looking forward to opening the bottle sometime in the next couple of weeks.. My main focus is trying to establish a good relationship with a couple of liquor stores so they may consider letting me get my hands on foe Sazerac 18 Year old and Thomas Handy Rye with BT releases some later this year..

    Re: jefferson 10 year rye

    Bought a few bottles of this at $23, and one bottle of Masterson's at considerably more (like $55). I REALLY have to pay attention to tell them apart in a blind tasting, and cannot say that I have a strong preference for one over the other. Thus I consider Masterson's the whiskey for which I most clearly overpaid.
