    Re: Lot 40 2012 Edition

    A shipment of the 2012 just made it to my local Binny's. $60, so not quite the $40 bargain, but I picked one up anyway because it's been on my list and I don't have any Canadians right now. Looking forward to trying this one.

    Damn that's pricey! I enjoyed it at the $39 i picked it up for at LCBO in Canada, wouldn't be a buyer at $60.

    Payback for the bourbons that cost 60 bucks up here but can be had for 40 south of the border.

    What I really want to know is: whatever happened to "free trade"

    Zing! Point well taken.

    As a CDN expat living in KY, i recognize VERY MUCH how good i have it. When i found a 90's era Lot 40 in KY this summer....$36. Any profit that store might have made was long gone due to carrying capital costs, taxes, etc.

    I liked the first version of Lot 40 and was sorta planning on picking up one of these new ones but not at that price.

    $60 might be a little steep but it is tasty juice. Back in August at the Canadian Whisky tasting I put on with Davin De Kergomeaux - Lot 40 was the most popular whisky of the tasting. The second favorite was Pike Creek Double Barreled - which can be had for under $40 if memory serves. Also quite tasty.

    It's about $50 out the door but I have to drive up to Vancouver to pick it up.

    Re: Lot 40 2012 Edition

    The original is what got me started in dusty hunting. When it finally makes it to Texas, I'll pick up a bottle, and try it alongside one of my dusty Lot 40s At $60, it might be the only one I ever buy, but I just have to compare them for myself. Can't fight that curiosity.

    Re: Lot 40 2012 Edition

    You guys have certainly de-winded my sails. I purchased it out of excitement and figured Binny's was due for a 15 or 20%-off sale in the next month (thirty day returns on unopened bottles). I wasn't planning on returning it if a sale didn't pop up, but I am now.
