Here's a photo of the bottle I got without the 2012 statement.
Thx for posting your old bottle.
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
Nullum Gratuitum Prandium
Ne Illegitimi Carborundum
Wonder if it's just so folks don't think it's old product sitting on the shelf? I admit, I'd read 2012 and think it was a slow mover if I didn't know better.
Flaminiom, what is the number in the upper left-hand corner of the label? I just bought a newly-stocked bottle of the '2012 Release' and it's number is 864597. Just wondering if we can gain some insight on that basis. Also, did your bottle have a hang-tag? Mine has a double-round tag with 'Canadian Whisky of the Year 2012' (Whisky Advocate) and some 2013 accolades inside.

I got one of these a few months ago while up in Canada.
Not a 2012 therefore, so maybe it's a batch difference, but this one wasn't my bag. To me, it was kind of flat tasting. I'm still waiting for a 100% rye to do it for me, I guess. Probably experience will lead my palate in a direction where I am more able to appreciate this. Until then, I suppose I like my corn-mixed mashbills.
After considering the matter I've decided I want at least 30% corn in the mashbill.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
I have a co-worker who buys a bottle for me every time they go home. This is the first Canadian product I really enjoy.
