Past 2 nights has been Oban Little Bay for me. I was never a fan of Oban 14 but really like the Little Bay. I think I might give the 14 a try again. It seems like over the past year I've been moving away from the smoke/peat that made me fall in love with scotch.

FYI scotch guys

Craft Cellars (1345 32Ave NE, where XS Cargo used to be) has some tasty scotch deals for Robbie Burns day.

From their email (More specials in store), with a few comparison prices:

GLENLIVET FRENCH OAK 15 YEAR OLD
Price: $51.99

GLENFIDDICH 15 YEAR OLD DISTILLERY EDITION
Free Whiskey Glass w/purchase
Price: $65.99
($80 Liquor Depot, $95 LCBO, $86 LCBC)


BENROMACH 10 YEAR OLD
Price: $61.99

MACALLAN FINE OAK
17 YEAR OLD
Price: $269.00

GLENFIDDICH RUM CASK 21 YEAR OLD
Free Whiskey Glass w/purchase
Price: $245.99

ARDBEG 10 YEAR OLD
Price: $63.99
($70 Liquor Depot. $100 LCBO. $90 LCBC.)


LAPHROAIG QUARTER CASK
Free Whiskey Glass w/purchase
Price: $59.99

HIGHLAND PARK 12 YEAR OLD
Free Whiskey Glass w/purchase
Price: $53.99
($60 Liquor Depot, $75 LCBC/LCBO)

SCAPA 2001 VINTAGE
Price: $94.99

The free whiskey glass is a boxed authentic Glencairn glass printed with a random distillery name, worth $5-10 on its own. Some of the whiskies specifically mention "Free Glass"; I was given a glass with my Ardbeg as well. YMMV.

[Edit: All Alberta prices +GST & Deposit]

Those are good prices, but at the same time, why are they comparing them to prices in other provinces that have much higher liquor tax rates?

Personally, I look at other markets for relative value. I read a lot of reviews, and often the overall score is based on the price paid. I like to compare AB pricing to US and other Canadian provinces to see if we can get better than normal value, or if the product is priced way higher here than other markets. A good value example is the Bruichladdich Octomore, I bought the 7.3 at Highlander for $120 as compared to $170 USD at a couple of US vendors I looked at and $270 at the LCBO. Given the praise it has received at US/Ontario pricing, that was a no brainer to me. On the flip side, Aberlour A'bunadh, while delicious, is now meaningfully cheaper basically everywhere else ($120 here vs $100 tax-in in Ontario), so I tend to look at other sherried scotch with more value in our market as a substitute (Glenfarclas 105 or Glendronach 15 are both well priced at zyn).

I don't know that they do have higher taxes after the double hit we took from the NDP/Conservatives back in 2015, or whether the higher cost on scotch at the LCBO, etc is due to simplistic markups by the provincial monopoly. Most whisk(e)y under $50 is now cheaper at the LCBO and other provinces, while higher priced whisk(e)y is mostly cheaper here. I'd kill to still be able to grab Four Roses Single Barrel for $46. When it left our market it was closer to $55, and the last bottle I found in a small shipment was $66.

So I ordered the most disgusting tasting 12" sub, and at the end, said "Actually, I changed my mind. I'm going to head to the Subway down the road. They serve the breakfast sandwich all day long. Tell your boss, he can have this sandwich. Thanks anyways".
