Well, it's back. Every few years Lot 40 reappears, like a fondly-recalled pop group that refuses to call it a day. And like some of those recurring rock outfits, this whiskey shows its chops can get better.
The current release is cotton-soft in texture and quite bourbon-like in taste. The old pot still rye, varsol-like notes are present, but the result is more nuanced than of yore, it's more approachable and much better than all prior iterations IMO.
Not to be missed and a bargain at about $40.00.
