lockejn, unfortunately most of those whiskies are for mixing only.

However, the one I will recommend is the Crown Royal Cask 16. Its an excellent blend that's finished in French cognac barrels. I first posted notes about it here and its since become my favorite Canadian whisky by far. Although it comes with a premium price, it will reward you.

Between here and Winnipeg, pretty much everything is available. Oh, that's right, we're on the wrong (or in this case right) side of the Atlantic. I can order anything that's on the LC list and have it shipped to my local in fairly short order and it's too much to list here. There are 130+ on the list to date:

I've had the pleasure of meeting John Hall from 40 Creek, who is a prince of a man with a very steady pouring arm. That is to say, he gives generous portions of his fine product.

Generally I enjoy 40 Creek, CC, Wisers and Glen Breton (not technically a rye whisky) but technically a Canadian dram. (Despite the misdirected legal efforts of the SWA)
:D

If you are going to buck up for the Crown Royal Cask 16, and you like the 40 creek, then you might want to try the forty creek double barrel. It goes for around $60 cad around here and is almost 1/2 the price of Cask 16.

Like some have said before Forty Creek reserve or Forty Creek Double Barrel are very good.
Also: Wisers 18yr
Canadian Club 12 yr,20yr, 30yr
Gibsons 18yr

Realize also that some of the Canadian Whiskeys available in the U.S. are not available in Canada because whiskeys like Canadian Hunter are made by Seagrams for U.S customers only. Its wierd but they do that because companies assume the people below Canada have differant tastes when it comes to rye.
