Question, guys: is this a very recent site? I'm jsut asking because I own about 8 whisky's which aren't even here in the list, to add to my cabinet. I thought maybe I spelled something wrong (I'm fairly new to whisky), but the search function is down as well! Please let me know? Thanks.

Randall, no, Connosr.com is not a very recent site. It has been around 5 years, but is very much in need of an overhaul. That overhaul, including, I hope, an expansion of the database, is in the planning now.

WOW! The LCBO is down to 34 bottles of the Laddie 10. And none in Toronto! Looks like the once-abundant supply is now a trickle ...

Opinions on wine cask aged/finished whisky, for or against & what is your fave?
I'am looking for a cognac cask finish wiskiy or scotch. Any body have an idea where I could find that kind of product and at wich cost?
@Sevy, Brenne Single Malt (France), about $ 50-60; you'll have to look for it. Try wine-searcher.com.
Also Parker's Heritage Collection Cognac Finish bourbon, about $ 85. Hard to find that one now; it came out about 3 years ago.

Thank you Victor
I would like to try a whisky with a sauterne finish. Does anybody has a suggestion? I would also like to know which Buffalo Trace product is the best value for money for you and wh. Thank you all!
@Robert99, the Hazelburn Sauterne 8 YO CS was pretty well regarded. I think we're just on the tail-end of its availability. At least, I know it was recently on clearance at Binny's in Illinois (and is now gone).
There's also an Edradour "Ballechin" (their peated malt) that they did in sauterne. It's still available. I think I see some reviews of it here, and Ralfy says 87 ("and that's a malt mark").
@Robert99, Old Charter 10 YO is a Buffalo Trace whisky. It is basically Eagle Rare 10 'Junior'. They share the same mash bill and possibly the same yeast. ER10 is a Single Barrel expression at 90 proof. It can be brilliant and sometimes less than brilliant; that is the chance you take when purchasing a single barrel expression. OC10 (86 pf) is bottled in batches and will likely be more consistent, but will never be stunning. The difference between the two expressions can be minimal. In Ontario ER10 is $49.95 and OC10 is $34.20
How would I spend my $100? Given the choice between three OC10 for $102.60 or two ER10 for $99.90, I would take the OC10, every time. OC10 is currently experiencing a supply disruption (discontinued); not surprising considering the premium attached to ER10.
Just came across a Marks and Spencer (TEMPLE FORTUNE SF, 820-832 Finchley Road, Golders Green London, United Kingdom, NW11 6XL) selling Elijah Craig 12 for the very low price of £26. Not sure if it's just this branch but I thought I'd mention it. It doesn't feature on the M&S website so it may just be this one.
What Whiskys can't you do without?
@Clarkie66 I'm always trying new Whisky but there are some that are always in my cabinet. Hibiki 12,Aberlour A'bunad, Lagavulin 16 & Rittenhouse Rye. What are yours?
Hello. I would like to ask you a question. What would be the value of a 103 year old bottle of rye whisky? We have found a bottle of Gooderham and Worts, Limited Canadian Rye Whisky in a sealed up wall in a house that was under renovation. All seals and labels intact. Was in a rye grass basket. The seal on the bottle states that it was bottled in 1912. Thank you.

I can send you photos if you wish.
Hey, guys! I just found they are celebrating somekind of act where they combine Japanese food with different whiskies. It's in London, maybe some users won't be able to attend it, but if anyone likes marry food and drink (I have done it with wine and beer but not yet with whisky) it can be a great opportunity to do so. Haven't check prices yet, hope it's not so much expensive. It takes place on the 23th Feb.
Costco are selling Mortlach "Old & Rare" for £38...you need a membership card to shop there but its worth joining £30 per year, as they often have very good priced whisky on offer.

Just poured myself a dram of A'bunadh 55. I'm really looking forward to sampling this one. Freshly opened and poured it is a bit shy in the glass. Strawberry fudge, pencil shavings and butterscotch. I can't wait to see what happens with time and water.
I was pretty stoked last night to see that John Glaser was going to be on the Colbert show.
Turns out it was a very different guy.
