Canadian whisky is solidly on the upswing, but so far the territory it’s conquering has been at the lower echelons of the spirits spectrum. Not anymore. Canadian Club is throwing down this holiday season with a plum-and-toffee-rich 40-year-old that retails for $220—pricey to be sure but still 28 times cheaper than Glenfiddich’s just-released 40-year-old.

One more thing…

“Do one thing and do it well” must be Davin de Kergommeaux’s motto because the dude has dedicated his life to knowing everything there is to know about Canadian whisky. And now he’s put all that in a book called—wait for it—Canadian Whisky ($25).
