    It's been years since I've purchased a bottle of Canadian whisky ... I may have to retry the "whisky of my youth" ... I look forward to your additional reviews.

    Re: Report on Some Old-School Canadian Whiskies

    I have a few suggestions, Forty Creek Barrel Select, Seagrams VO Gold, Wiser's Pot Still Rye and Lot 40 for a start.

    Can echo the Forty Creek, wonderful dessert port taste to it. Fairly widely available as well.

    Squire, are you referring to the Wiser's Legacy with the blue label? Saw it pop up in Louisville a few weeks back. First time i'd seen outside the LCBO in Canada.

    I'll have to see what the free State of West Virginia allows in to the State! The Liquor Commission does seem to be making it easier to sell spirit products in Almost Heaven.

    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?

    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.

    Re: Report on Some Old-School Canadian Whiskies

    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?
