    It's a great bottle. Does it say distilled or bottled in Vermont? Curious if they have enough of their own distilled juice for their core range yet, or if they're still buying AB Premium distillate. I laughed a few years ago when I bought up a store pick Whistlepig 10 that was distilled in SE Calgary, barrel aged in Vermont and barrel picked/sold by a store in Dallas, only to be brought back to Calgary.

    Not as aged, but the cask strength Alberta Premium is a great buy @ ~$50. Hotter and younger than Whistlepig/Mastersons for sure, but great on the value front. For other rye, be on the lookout for High West's Midwinter Night's Dram. It's the first it's been available in the country in many years (4 or 5 I think). Allegedly not as good as when they were sourcing more aged whiskey, but it's also quite a bit cheaper now (used to be ~$165, now $130 and was on sale at Highlander for $110 yesterday).
    It says product of Canada but aged and bottled in Shoreham, VT. My understanding is they've always bought their distillate from Alberta Distillers and it will be a few more years before any of their own distillate will be 10+ years of age.

    I can't find many Canadian whisky's over here (except that JP Wiser's 10 year triple barrel which I think was special for the German market) so I need to track down a source that's not crazily overpriced.

    That Lismore is untouchable at that price! I grabbed a couple as my current bottle seems to have a leak

    Lots of good stuff on that sale, that I want, but I've picked up too many other bottles recently.

    Lag 12, Allta, Three Wood, CB Affinity, CB The Circle, then the more expensive guys like the Tomatin 21, OP 25, and GlenAllachie 25 are all intriguing. Hell, even the Dewar's Caribbean 8 might not be a bad try at 30 bucks.

    Hnnnng, so tempting to get more from Willow Park...

    Kensington had the 21 year Aberfeldy for $140, so I got that over the weekend.

    I just re-tried the Auchentoshan 3 Wood saturday! I love it, quite nice and a bit smoother than the 12

    Nice!

    Happy the sale ended before I ended up grabbing anything.

    Picked this up from Kensington the other day, it's a bit more earthy and raw than the 16 but very nice!

    I know this is a Scotch thread but let's talk Canadian whisky for a minute. I've been asked to put on a tasting of Canadian whisky for my group in the UK.

    Unfortunately, there's not a lot of selection/availability in the UK (we typically by through https://thewhiskyexchange.com as we have a club discount there).

    I'm leaning towards Signal Hill, Lot 40 Rye, and JP Wiser's Dissertation as I believe it gives a good overview of various grains, barrels, styles available in Canada. The sad part is, I haven't been able to locate the bottles to try for myself here first!!

    Any other recommendations that I should try to track down? Budget is 200-220GBP for 3 bottles but I'm thinking it may not be worth spending the full budget so we can carry 100GBP over to the next tasting for some high-quality scotch.

    Some of the whisky's coming out of Cape Breton are good.

    A friend from there suggested the Glen Breton 10 year...

    I cannot profess to having a lot of experience with better Canadian whisky but I did buy a bottle of this to take to a friend in England as a gift the last time we visited and he said he really enjoyed it. It is a 21yo Rocky Mountain...

    For a "basic but good" Canadian Whiskey, a good starting point is the Crown Royal Northern Harvest. Not going to blow off anyones socks, but it's a solid starting point, and a good example of what a rye whiskey is trying to be.
    Move upwards in price/complexity from there obviously.
    Make the world a radder place, grow a mullet.
    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.
