    Re: Lot 40 2012 Edition

    The Collingwood I enjoyed and described is the "regular" Collingwood, not the 21-year old "straight rye mash". I saw a bottle of the 21-yr old stuff a few weeks ago in Maryland and picked up a bottle of High West rye instead. The High West is great stuff, but I sure hope the Collingwood 21 is still available next time I'm in Maryland. I've search the Jersey packies to no avail. (I've never seen the regular Collingwood in Jersey either, but it is easy to find in the Pennsy state stores. It's a true bargain, IMO.)

    Re: Lot 40 2012 Edition

    Ah, I see. From what I can tell the regular Collingwood is a blend of just two whiskys, a mostly corn base distillate and the flavoring rye, finished with toasted maple staves added to the vat for a period of time up to a year. Apparently designed to be a Crown Royal killer.

    That's my conclusion too.

    I see this has made it to our friendly shores. I wonder if this is all from one big batch (2012 release) or is in continual production.

    It should say 2012 on the label if it is the 2012

    It does say 2012 release. I just wonder if it's worth $40 [to me].

    $40?! That's about $15 cheaper than I've seen it anywhere. I'm not a big fan of this one, as it's a little too muted for me, but it's prob worth $40, IMHo

    It's completely worth it. And at that price it's a steal. Bag all you can.

    Its worth it - but its a lighter style compared to many of the american ryes. I was disappointed initially but came around quickly.

    Ha ha, we've got cases of it here right now - I'll buy one to try, another if I like it.
