    Wiser's Legacy has crossed the border

    Reports are that this is starting to make its appearance south of the Canadian border. ThomasH mentioned seeing it in Ohio ($41) back in September and bad-scientist in Florida more recently (on sale $35). My memories along with others here, of the bottle that Gary Gillman brought to the gazebo, make it worthy of attention in its own thread (though I see Gary liked that first edition of it best). Pernord Ricard USA took over distribution here for Corby back in July 2012. I'll be buying when it makes it to Chicago. Now how about Lot 40 ?

    Re: Wiser's Legacy has crossed the border

    Good to see it Stateside. The first bottling seemed to me have the fullest flavor of spearmint. The later ones seem less consistent in this regard, some have that keynote (or to me it was a keynote), some less so. However, it's to be expected in a small batch product.

    I'll bring the reissued Lot 40 to the Sampler upcoming, it is much improved IMO from the first bottling and very enjoyable.

    Re: Wiser's Legacy has crossed the border

    I saw a couple of bottles in September in a small store a few miles from me, in the northern Twin Cities suburbs. I have not seen it at any of the usual suspects, though.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I'm reliably informed it's on the shelves in parts of Florida.

    I've got it in several stores near me (all the same chain).

    Re: Wiser's Legacy has crossed the border

    I checked wine-searcher (non-pro version) for USA and two results
    shown are in NY with $40. being the lower price. I'd try it for that...

    second that, available south of the cities too.

    It is a rye that all should try.
