@RikS odd is an understatement for the LCBO.

Wandered into Winn Dixie (Clermont, Fl) wine and spirits and picked up Glenlivet Founder's Reserve for 31.99. Regular price was 46.00

@PeterG7 That's still $31.99 more than I would pay for that expression. I found it almost undrinkable.

For that price you could get a bottle of OGD 114 - now THAT'S WHISKEY!

@PeterG7 Tastes differ.

I'm a bit arrogant when it comes to approaching NAS releases meant to replace reasonable entry level age stated expressions. I was biased when I tried it. I really did not like it though.

But also, although I am very active on this site, and enjoy reading about and learning about whisky, outside of tastings where I try to hold my own, I don't seem to find the opportunities to drink a lot. So when I do I really have to make It count, and I tend to stay away from "ok" whiskies" in favour of "wow" whiskies unless I'm doing a blind tasting or a review.

So while I don't apologize for not liking Livet's Founder's Reserve, there was no intention to impugn your tastes.
