Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Aromas of rye bread and orange blossom betray the fruity character. Notes of white pepper, licorice, vanilla plus hints of musty library books and river stones come through. This one develops in the glass, revealing itself to be rather complex. (Mar 2015)
Named after land once occupied by an ancestor of retired Master Blender Michael Booth, Lot No. 40 rye whisky is crafted in small batches, strictly following his original recipe. Copper pot distilled, to emphasize its fruity and floral characteristics; the whisky is aged in premium white oak casks, mellowing as it acquires a velvety oak finish. Re-launched in response to popular demand, Lot No. 40 is a complex, rewarding and unmistakably Canadian whisky.
