@talexander I also struck out on the 1792 Full Proof. I really need to establish a friendship with someone who works at the LCBO....

@OdysseusUnbound My nephew's girlfriend's sister got a job with the LCBO, but I think things are on hold until after COVID settles.

Apart from that, we like his girlfriend, so I'm hoping to make the arrangement permanent... stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

I got an email today about the LCBO’s “massive one day online sale, YUUUUUGE savings promised.” Hmmm, let’s see: lots of mediocre bottles with their regular prices marked up to make the actual price look like a sale, also lots of mediocre bottles “on sale” for $1 or $2 off. Wow. How impressive. unamused

@OdysseusUnbound Hmmm, why does that sound so familiar? Oh yes, it's the BC Liquor Stores' strange concept of a sale. Deja vu all over again.

@Astroke Definitely not. I can criticize Alberta for a lot of things, but their liquor store policies are A-OK.

Meanwhile, KWM, which already had the Newmake and the gins for sale, is releasing Milk and Honey Classic malt. In Calgary.

From a marketing perspective, if the LCBO were to make this available, given the demographics, it would sell faster than Wiser’s 23 at $105!
