I've never heard of it, but I imagine it's a Canadian whiskey? Have never seen it, but you can get Canadian Club or Canadian Mist.

I haven't seen Windsor but CC and Crown Royal can be had. My friends who are Windsor drinkers always bring a jug when they visit.

Having been in the bar biz for close to 20 years here is what I can tell you about Windsor. Windsor Canadian whiskey is distilled and is made with (among other things) the purest Canadian glacial water in Windsor, Ontario. Windsor is probably the leader (Canadian whiskey) among the northern U.S. states that border with Canada. Windsor rates among the better "bottom shelfers".

Me, I prefer Crown Royal, speaking of which, I still have two bottles of 100+ years old Crown. Saving it for "that" special occasion
