Lot No. 40 Canadian Rye Whisky is distilled at the Hiram Walker Distillery in Windsor, Ontario. Its production is overseen by master blender Dr. Don Livermore. The whisky is made in a 12,000 liter copper pot-still and is 100% rye--90% Canadian rye and 10% malted rye. This whisky is a bit of a re-make of a re-make. Originally distilled at Joshua Booth's farm near Millhaven, Ontario at the end of the American Revolutionary War, Lot No. 40 was created as a tribute to Joshua by Mike Booth his great-great-great-great grand-nephew back in the 1990s. Lot No. 40 is bottled without an age statement at 86 proof.

Tasting Notes

"A hint of maraschino appears on the nose along with the touch of brown sugar and salted caramel. On the palate, this lives up to the mash-bill. Tons of black pepper and barrel spices along with tobacco and a bit of bitter coffee. There’s a nondescript fruitiness on the long tannic finish. A fine Canadian example. "
