    I hear you brother!
    Given that most of the swill on the Canadian shelf is bottled at 40%, and the glacial pace the industry moves at, 43% is an accomplishment! I too would love to see it at the same strength (45%) as its sibling - Wiser's Legacy.

    Re: Lot 40 Canadian Rye

    I find Lot 40 to be an excellent 100% rye. The taste differences between the 100% rye WhistlePig or Masterson's - as compared to the 100% Lot 40 - shows the skill and art of the blender/distiller.

    Since I'm in MI, across the river from Windsor, Ont., I can fairly easily pop across the border and pick up a bottle for ~ US $40. I'm glad to see that it's now distributed in the U.S. (at least, in some states), but unfortunately at a much higher price point (~$60).

    I may be washed up here but I thought I read somewhere the mashbill was 90/10 rye/malted barley.

    Either way I am going to try and pick up a bottle and try it out.

    It's 90% rye and 10% malted rye. That makes me wonder if WhistlePig also has a small % of malted rye though

    Possibly, I thought I also read somewhere that no malted barley was used and it was an enzymatic reaction in 100% rye mash.

    Re: Lot 40 Canadian Rye

    I'll go with the 90/10 recipe, the important thing being it's all rye.
