    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" ...
    Oh, we're "free" to trade our money for the privilege of transporting delicious spirits across the border! I think it's all in the punctuation.

    Great finds, Ryan! Quick question: I have several of the Jeff 10 ryes, but none of mine have the unchillfiltered sticker. Was that a limited release or something? I've never even seen those around. Thanks!

    The Jefferson's started out as a UCF'd 100% Canadian then to the chill filtered version and now is to switch yet a again to a 95% American rye LDI/MGPI based.

    Does that mean the stickerless versions are LDI/MGP? I've never seen one with a sticker (or is there something else that might indicate the distillate).

    My understanding is non USA distillate must disclose country of origin and that information is often buried on the back label.

    I believe the switch is in the the works and the 95% is still waiting in the wings,just don't quote me on that as of yet.Most of what is still on the shelves is 100% Canadian just not the "pulp filled"goodness of the UCF'd of yesteryear. If anyone has had one in the past they will agree that it looks like someone shredded a Kleenex in the bottle,but pretty damned yummy to say the least.The Jeffersons UCF'd 10 yr. was a nice alternative to WP,6 points less proof and at less than half the price!
