    2012 Lot 40 or the original bottling?

    Doesn't say 2012 on it so, original?

    Surprised those are still sitting out there from the 90's. But given what i've learned on SB.com, maybe i shouldn't be.

    Love the 2012, if Canada wasn't such a drive i'd swing up and grab a few more for the bunker.

    So what's the difference between the two? And there are actually a lot of this particular bottle in a particular somewhere.

    From what i read the '12 bottle was the distiller blowing the dust off the old equipment and recipe and making another batch (allegedly limited, but it's all relative given that Pernod-Ricard owns the still it's been made on.

    According to the esteemed Mr. Davin de Kergommeaux;
    "Former master blender David Doyle and Corby’s current master blender, Dr. Don Livermore had a hand in making the 2012 version of Lot 40. But true to Corby’s commitment to maintaining historic brands and recipes, (Corby’s also makes Wiser’s whiskies), when they thought they had everything just right, they went back to retired master blender, Mike Booth to be sure."

    If you're not planning on looting the entire stash, would appreciate the PM so i can sample side by side with the '12 i snagged last month in Canada.

    Huh. I'll be durned. So this stuff has been sitting there since the 90s? Ha, my first dusty Canadian. Check your PMs, but if YOU get there first leave one on the shelf for me ha!

    Thanks you sir, you're a scholar and a gentleman

    For reference, the newer bottle looks like;

    Lot-40-Canadian-Rye-Whisky-2012-523x330.jpg

    crap that looks small on here...basically same logo but they added 2012 edition just below the Lot 40.

    Yeah looks just alike and that's why I picked it up! Never noticed the 2012 strip before, duhr.

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts on that comparison. The 2012 hasn't made it to TX yet, and I'm waiting to open one of my last two 90's versions until I can have them side-by-side.

    Word is that - as long as sales warrant - it will continue to be produced.
    I don't know what the previous edition tasted like but the 2012 is mighty good - so much so I bunkered 6 right after opening the first.
