  1. I bought this on a whim trying to fill out a box I was ordering from a store in California. I had heard some good things about this particular whisky, so was happy to see it in stock and at a price much lower than I'd seen elsewhere. As far as I can tell, this is not available in Virginia, though the regular Collingwood bottling is. This is a Brown-Forman product made in the Canadian Mist distillery. While not a small batch operation, it really is a delicious whisky. I haven't been a big rye drinker in the past, and the ones I have tried are tied to bourbon brands that I already enjoy (High West, EH Taylor, Willett, Sazerac). After my first sip of this one, though, I feel like I've been missing out. It's fruity and spicy in a way that bourbon isn't. There's almost no sweetness, instead the rye spice comes forward in its place. I've been drinking it neat, and it's a very warm drink all the way. I'm not sure ice or having it chilled would improve the flavor. It's finished in toasted Maplewood, which I think gives it a nice campfire depth. It's smoky without being overpowering, and still manages to maintain that initial fruitiness. I was able to pick up the standard Collingwood rye today at my local ABC store for $22, so I'm hoping it is only a minor step down from the 21 year. If you can find this in DC and enjoy sipping whisky, I'd highly recommend picking up a bottle. If not, it is available in stores in New York and California with liberal shipping policies.
