I found some Forty Creek the other day. I dunno, kinda disappointed with it really. It reminded me of Canadian Club. But is was their generic line, so maybe they make better bottles.

I also found a Hirsch 20 year Rye, in Napa of all places (Dean and Daluca). Wow...outstanding! Highly recommended.

I've been reading Davin de Kergommeaux's book, Canadian Whisky, and rather enjoy it. It is very educational, detailing how it's made, the history of the distilleries and more. If anyone is even mildly interested in this subject, I highly recommend the book.

Just though I'd revive this thread as it helped convince me that I do need to start drinking more whisky, as the doctor said. Having grown up on Royal Reserve and other people's Crown Royal, I didn't really have a high opinion of whisky; would try to drown the taste with ginger ale. Now that I am older and have more disposable income, I have discovered that better brands exist, and drinking it neat was the preferred option. I've recently picked up a number of the bottles in this thread and on the whisky review site and I never realized how vastly different they all could be. Fortunately for my wallet we have quite a few sales in this town (15 liquor stores for 14,000 people).

I'd just like to say thanks for bringing me back into the fold. I now carry a hip flask of Gibson's everywhere I go.

Bought some Pike's Creek hand crafted rye the other day, mainly because of Michael's recommendation. The LCBO had to order it special for me a couple of weeks ago, kind of pricey, but has a very smooth and subtle fruity taste vs the more vanilla overtones I'm accustomed to in Forty Creek's Barrel Select which is my usual go-to rye. Definitely worth a try, you will probably have to order it though.

Costco has a Kirkland whiskey now. Here in Edmonton it is $49.99 for a 1.75L (60oz) bottle. Really, really smooth. No mix required, maybe a rock or three. Still prefer Gibson's but this Kirkland is not so bad!

Glad you liked it! I didn't think anyone paid attention to my recommendations...

Have you had a chance to try the Lot 40?

Haven't tried that one, Michael. I'll look for it on my next visit to the liquor store.
