    I stocked up.
    How many (for me to judge how good you think the juice is)?

    Another bottle of Jeffersons 10 year 100% rye (before the switch to LDI takes effect). This is becoming one of my favorite ryes.

    I ordered a half-dozen. It's by far my favorite available-in-Ontario rye. I mean, I prefer Saz 18, Vintage 21, VWFRR, etc... but let's be realistic.

    I'd love to see Willett rye here some day. Heck, I'd stock up on Bulleit if I could.

    Duty Free.... 1 40oz bottle, anything more and you have to pay duty as a visitor.

    So in theory even having to pay duty you mght still come out ahead?

    Especially if it's something you can't find there.

    Fun site/app I found, terrifyingly expensive by the looks of it. I've only ever brought under the limit both directions, so not sure if it truly is that expensive. If so, may not be worth going over the personal limit.

    1.14L or 40 oz? Could they possibly pick a goofier number as the limit?

    The law hasn't been updated since the switchover to metric. It still refers to old style 40 oz bottles. "Forty pounders" as we used to fondly call them.

    1.14L is roughly a bottle and a half, so if you are travelling with your spouse, you can combine your limit and carry three 750s.

    Over the limit, it depends on which province you enter, some are more expensive than others. Don't enter Ontario with more than your duty free limit. The duty, tax and LCBO penalty add up to almost the cost of the bottle (again).

    Not sure what ever happened to "Free Trade" ...

    Well, that would explain it!
