@Nozinan I think you just summed up the meaning of life.

@Nozinan He's coming home on Friday, so I'll get the details. I know he shopped around quite a bit. I know he always checks the Superstore and I think he might have hit a Liquor Depot. I'll let you know for sure on Friday. Actually, I could email him. He also got Benromach 10, $67; Springbank 10, $73; Hazelburn 10, &70; Kilchoman Machir Bay, $81; and Lag 16, $89.

@Nozinan @nooch My boy says he got great deals at the Great Canadian Liquor Store and Co-Op Liquors. Nothing from Liquor Depot. He said one place gives a 10% seniors discount on Tuesdays but didn't say where that was. I'll find out though. So send your oldest guy in to do the buy. He just turned 60, so I guess that is senior enough.

@paddockjudge That's right, you young whipper snapper. I love Charlie Parker, and Miles and Monk and Bill Evans and Chick Corea, and Coltrane, etc. etc. Whisky and jazz, man, it's a natural. Get with it, Brother. sunglasses

@BlueNote Chick Corea, is he/she related to Huntington's Chorea?

And is that "Rosco P Coltrane"?

@Nozinan He did a lot of shopping around. I'll try and get some more info out of him. He said he'd have to kill me if he told me all his secrets. But wherever he got the stuff, those are killer prices. I forgot to ask him to look for some more Kilkerran 12, but last time it came from KWM and I think it was in the $70s.

@Nozinan I can't think of any of Roscoe's big hits just off the top of my head. Chick Corea is to Latin Jazz as Yo Yo Ma is to Cello music. Check it out, Doc.

Good luck with the shopping in Calgary. I'm expecting 8 excellent bottles arriving on Friday. I got 2 Uigeadails for $166, that's a saving of $136.20 over BC price.

@BlueNote I'm not a big jazz fan but I've heard of Corea. Huntington's is not related.

And I agree with @paddockjudge, if you're listening to Rosco P Coltrane, you need some of that Alberta CS rye, or some moonshine from Hazard County.

For Robbie Coltrane, AKA Hagrid, I recommend butter beer.

And for John Coltrane, something very smooth.

@Nozinan My Calgary man says he did a lot of phoning and driving around checking out all the small stores to get those prices. He put in a fair bit of time and effort. I'll find out on Friday where else he shopped. The 50 buck Laph 10 is an amazing price these days. Other friends of mine have done well at Vines Wines and they always get a discount on multiple bottles. Liquor Depot is inconsistent...some really good prices and some the same or more than here.

@BlueNote my brother in law and I have been to almost every store in the north west and a few in other areas. If there's a deal to be found on oogie.... he'll find it.

@Nozinan I THINK the Oogie came from Great Canadian Liquor Store. $83 +GST.

@BlueNote I wouldn't be surprised. I picked up one in Dec. 2015 and my BIL got me a spare in Jan 2016 from one of their stores for around $80 plus tax.
