Likely due to the success of the 2012 release, this current bottling of Lot 40 has no year stated on the bottle, and there’s no indication that it ever will again. Like the aforementioned release, the mash-bill of this whisky is 90% rye and 10% malted rye. The exact age is undisclosed.

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. "
