Coming soon to a LCBO near you (perhaps)

Dropped in at the LCBO to ask if the laphroaig 16 was on their radar. A quick check through their system and the answer is a resounding no. However, they do have the following new malts on order to LCBO's that have a vintage section. Stores yet to be determined. Laphroaig Cairdeas Triple Wood, Laphroaig 25 cask strength and Laphroaig 30. When I asked about the price the response was yet to be determined. Personally, I think the 25 will be north of 500$ and the 30 somewhere in the 1000$ plus, the Cairdeas I suspect will be a reasonable price. If you wanted to follow up on LCBO web site the stock numbers are: 11711 (triple wood)10235 (25 year) and13301 (30 year)

@PeterG7, I will be astonished if the Laphroaig 25 year is under $800 and even more amazed if the 30 year is less than double that price.

@paddockjudge BC Liquor has the 25 for $530 plus all their multiple taxes. BC is usually higher than the LCBO if that's possible.

@Astroke I'm not familiar with the BC prices, however, in Ontario the tax is already calculated into the price. Is that the same for BC?

@paddockjudge I agree with you. That's why I qualified the cost with "north of". I also suspect the LCBO has some type of matrix that identifies where high end alcohol sells. It doesn't make any sense for those malts to go to "end of the road Ontario" where they will sit in a locked cabinet and gather dust.

@PeterG7, LCBO is The Matrix. This is TIFF week. Keanu Reeves is a Canadian actor, so watch for him at an LCBO near you flogging $1600 Laphroaig 30 YO.

Your first mistake was assuming the LCBO does things that make sense.

@PeterG7 No, the price on the shelf is before taxes plus they have a liquor tax on top of that,

@Astroke What is the price of Lagavulin 16 before all the tax is applied?

@PeterG7 I don't know. Actually I am from Ontario but have some friends in BC who tell me of these wonderful extra taxes. Special alcohol taxes exist in many states as well

@AstrokeI went to the BC web site and the lag 16 is a penny shy of 140$. It is about 6$ more than Ontario. However, I'm not sure if that price is tax included. Perhaps, someone from BC can let me know
