I have a few suggestions, Forty Creek Barrel Select, Seagrams VO Gold, Wiser's Pot Still Rye and Lot 40 for a start.
All those the Squire mentioned are very worthy. Actually, even regular CC is. It is just a different taste, lighter, more neutral, yet with definite qualities depending on the age and approach. Wiser's Legacy is a good example of the traditional Canadian profile maxed to the limit (i.e., it's not bourbon or straight rye but maxes out the potential of the regular Canadian taste IMO).
Yes, blue label, 90 proof, has the words 'pot still' on the label. I believe Wisers has had some prior editions of the Legacy label but doubt any of them are on our shelves.
Gary, have you tried the new CC Classic 12 Small Batch? If so, how does it compare to the original?
One whiskey for every ghost.
I have and it's excellent. I believe it is a rebranding, or essentially. There is also a sherry cask version - to be essayed soon.
Gary I look forward to your take on the CC Sherry Cask. I found the sherry influence a bit prominent in such a light style whisky.
I found a store with some dusties a couple of years ago. Along with a few nice bourbons, I picked up a liter of Walker's Northern Light Canadian. It has a faux tax stamp, and the number 87 stamped on the bottom of the bottle. I haven't opened it yet. I've been holding off since it's the only dusty Canadian I have. Any of you other Canadian lovers tried this?
