Style: Blended whiskey
Proof: 40% ABV
Price: $25
Release: February 2017
Availability: 7,500 bottles available in New York, New Jersey, Florida, Connecticut, Maryland, and Kentucky

Need to know: This whiskey blends 51% Canadian rye with 49% American corn whiskey. The Cask & Crew range also includes Walnut Toffee and Ginger Spice flavored whiskeys (both 35% ABV).

Whisky Advocate says: This is a new one to us—blending Canadian-sourced rye whisky and American corn whiskey. The label calls it a blended rye whiskey. Although it originated in Canada, the rye component qualifies as a straight rye whiskey as it comprises at least 51% rye grain and was aged for three years in new charred oak barrels.
