    Wonder if the pandemic has something to do with the pricing. Shipping is getting more expensive and demand for household liquor has increased from what I read

    Used to be about $75 at superstore and now it is $105ish I believe. Costco is similar
    Damn, that must have been a really long time ago. The lowest I remember seeing the Lag 16 at RCLS was ~$90 and that was around 2, maybe 3, years ago. Itís just under $100 now.

    Popped by RCLS today and they still have solid deals!

    We, also, saw an extremely limited release of the new 15 YO and the disappearance of the 18. The 21 is rolling in again but at ~$100 more than the last release.

    That Have killed at least one of each of those bottles! The Glenmorangie and Dalmore would be tied for my top two out of those with the Macallan next then the Glenrothes. Enjoy!

    Not Scotch but a damn fine wedding gift to add to the top shelf of my whiskey collection.

    I put most of my whiskey bottles into storage until winter other than some cheap Bourbon / Irish stuff for cocktails.

    However, I've been scoring big at the Supermarket here the last few days.

    I've been buying bottles of Glendronach 12 for 44 Euros which I don't think is that bad of a price for how nice of a whisky it is. The other day I gifted a bottle to a mate and there were only 2 bottles left on the shelf at the supermarket so I figured I better pick-up another in case they ran out. They also had a Glenrothes Whisky Maker's Cut for 40% off at 34 Euros so I thought, why they hell not? Threw it in storage until the Fall.

    Today I returned to the same supermarket and the last bottle of Glendronach 12 was 50% off - only 22 Euros!!! Score. 2 bottles of Glendronie in storage until the Fall.

    They also had a deal on a Spanish Whisky - DYC 8. I've had it on a hot day on the rocks before and didn't think it was half bad so picked up a bottle for only 12 Euros. Holy shit, at that price - it's better than not bad. It could easily pass for a $30+ Speyside. They had Suntory Toki for 25 Euros as well but I think this DYC 8 is actually quite a bit better than that. Plus, it's cheap enough to throw in an Old Fashioned (which I'm enjoying now).

    I'm going to have to track down the older DYC blends but damn they're dangerous at that price.

    Picked these 2 bottles up a few weeks ago when they were on sale.

    The old P is an interesting bottle, kinda all over the place with taste.

    The Glen bourbon cask bottle is good, can definitely taste the bourbon element

    Both are good additions to break up my collection which is mainly peaty.

    The craziness of the world's politics and current market returns drove me to put in a big order yesterday... 18-hours later this arrived.

    Scotch is getting shelved until the fall but lots of bourbon to sample this summer.

    Edit: That 18-year Allardice may be my first investment bottle - figure it can't be worse than holding cash right now. It's the 2019 bottling which means it should be entirely 24+ year whisky. https://wordsofwhisky.com/glendronac...he-label-says/

    It's a great bottle. Does it say distilled or bottled in Vermont? Curious if they have enough of their own distilled juice for their core range yet, or if they're still buying AB Premium distillate. I laughed a few years ago when I bought up a store pick Whistlepig 10 that was distilled in SE Calgary, barrel aged in Vermont and barrel picked/sold by a store in Dallas, only to be brought back to Calgary.

    Not as aged, but the cask strength Alberta Premium is a great buy @ ~$50. Hotter and younger than Whistlepig/Mastersons for sure, but great on the value front. For other rye, be on the lookout for High West's Midwinter Night's Dram. It's the first it's been available in the country in many years (4 or 5 I think). Allegedly not as good as when they were sourcing more aged whiskey, but it's also quite a bit cheaper now (used to be ~$165, now $130 and was on sale at Highlander for $110 yesterday).
