    Running out of Balvenie 12YO Doublewood. Might get another bottle since it was so good. Anything at costco similar in price/quality?

    The last bottle of dublewood I picked up was at Costco for $60. They don't always have it but at that price it is a deal.

    As for the Japanese whiskeys I would tend to lean towards the Toki by Suntory, again nice light easy drink.

    I found this to be a bit "boring" exceptionally smooth, but lacked character. Kind of like a Camry XLE Still, an exceptionally nice easy drinking whiskey, enjoyable without doubt. The Suntory Japanese Harmony recently won our "blind testing" whiskey night a few months back.

    I bought Nirasaki Japanese Whisky for $30 at Highlander a few weeks back after trying it at Gorilla Whale and it was pretty great sipper. Smooth, but with a bit of character. I think its the best whiskey at that price point for sure - although, the bottle is pretty cheap and unappealing (funny how that effects your experience)

    I'll be headed to Japan in October. Going to try and start acquiring some Japanese Whisky tastes before the trip. I'll try the Nirasaki. Any other suggestions?

    Just mowed through a bottle of the Kirkland 20yo Speyside this weekend. While it is excellent, it's nowhere near as good as it should have been. The Sherry finishing is a bit overpowering and it's just not as buttery as it should be considering the quality of some of this brand's cheaper whiskey. I really liked it; but, it should have been better.
    I don't see the Kirkland 16 at stores anymore, but I think it was way better and way cheaper than this one.
    Won't buy again. Glad it was a gift!

    Had a good Saturday night at my brother in laws place, we did a tasting though a little bit of his collection. He was educating our soon to be brother in law. I really liked that Port Charlotte. Now I got a few things I want to get for myself.

    It always varies... I just stop in whenever I go and see if they have anything notable. Last Visit they had the Balvenie Doublewood on for $63 which is good value on a decent everyday bottle as well as Dalmore 15 for $98 a bottle. Everything else was meh.

    Need advice.
    Friend likes smokey nonsense, the smokier, the better. Drinks a lot of Lagavulin-16.
    What's smokey and good and about double Lagavulin-16 price so I can buy it as a gift?

    Laphroaig is pretty much pure campfire. I love it. The gf does not.

    Octomore.

    Roughly double the Laga 16 price and offensively peaty. Peatiest scotch money can buy.

    Yes! I heard him mention that after we did a tasting at Bothy once (when I was hung over as bawls)!

    EDIT......
    Which one?!

    They are all pretty similar TBH. the ones ending in #.3 are probably the peatiest of the bunch, and they are like 58-60%abv, but they are all good.

    If you dont mind going out of your way, the 7.3 is probably the one to get as it's a bit more rare and is 63% abv and 169ppm for "peatiness" (FYI Laga 16 is around 35ppm). He is going to taste peat the next morning after he wakes up I can guarantee that. I think they only have a few at either Wine and Beyond at Sage Hill, the Liquor Depot at Brentwood .. maybe. http://calgary.liquordirect.ca/Search.aspx?k=octomore

    Otherwise you can't go wrong with any of them.
