Since we all know Whistle Pig is really a Canadian rye in a Vermont bottle, any suggestions to a true Canadian 100% rye equivalent?


Lot's of really good Canadian Whiskey like Lot No.40, Crown Royal Limited Edition or Cask No.16 and Wiser's Red Letter or 18 year old.

In terms of 100 Rye though I think the best would be Canadian Club Chairman’s Select


Thanks Rob_Sutherland! Will have to try those. Most of my whiskey consumption are Scotland and KY...always looking to expand the palate Wink
I don't have the most experience with scotch, but a buddy had a bottle of Costco's Kirkland brand scotch. It was an 18-year old, sherry cask-finished highland scotch. It was freaking delicious. He said it was less than 50$ or something of that nature. I've been drinking a 19 year old Glenfiddich (bourbon barrel finish) with some friends and that bottle is around 150$, and I'm not sure which one I prefer. Obviously, if I'm paying, I prefer the Kirkland!

This is the one that keeps eluding me. Where did you source this if you don't mind me asking?


No prob- sourced at the Lakeview Binny's. The Oak Brook and Lincoln Park stores appear to have this in stock as well. Lakeview had a bottle remaining when I left.

That's weird - I've checked Binny's many times (I thought) and have never seen it there. Thanks EB, its time to make a trip. It would be too easy if the Binny's that I can actually see from my house had it.

tlv- I'm sure you're aware, but if not- if you search for the item on Binny's website it'll allow you to search availability by location. I relied on this to pick Lakeview as my destination and it was correct. The bottle was in the "reserve" or special area of the store, whatever it's called. Enjoy!

I called my local store and they did agree to have a bottle shipped to Algonquin for me to pick up. Now if I only had $5k for a bottle of the 50 year.
