@Nozinan Yes, I certainly picked up my bottle out of province although $118 tax in from NS was not cheap but within reason for Canada/Ardbeg.

@Astroke Ah... you originally said $180, but I agree $118 is in Canadian terms a steal.

@Nozinan $180 was the SAQ price mentioned in the post. I responded that $205 was the LCBO price?

Hi everyone. I'm Dan. I live in the Midlands in the UK.

Been serious about Whisky for about 10-12 years. I was a drinker of Johnnie Walker Black label at the time was round a friends house and saw some bottles of whisky on his shelf. I mentioned I liked JWB for it's smokiness. He then gave me my first ever glass of single malt which was Lagavulin 16 (back when it was great and not merely good) Doors of perception well and truly blown off so to speak from the first sip!

I like pretty much all whisky from Bourbon and Rye to Scotch but tend to favour Single malt scotch. I like everything from Sherry bombs to peat monsters. My favourite whiskies at the moment tend to come from the likes of Old Pulteney, Springbank (and still) Lagavulin although these days I favour the 12yo CS over the 16.

Welcome @abgreenway! Too bad you are so far north in Edmonton. If you were a little more in the southerly driving lanes, you'd be instantaneously popular with Canadians, East and West. Alberta is still the whisky price Mecca of Canada, you know.

Hi - I signed up for a friend actually who doesn't have a computer. She has a vintage bottle of Gooderham & Worts 1867-1967 l00 Centennial Rare Old Whisky - aged l5 years. bottled l952 with the original Box, Bag & Tag - all mint condition (purchased by her father) and she is curious about its worth.

@Yvette I think you may have mistaken my sarcasm for something more serious. At the December tasting we would drink it, not buy it...

@bernicestocksti That's very kind, thank you.

I don't wish to sound cynical but I hope you're here for the whisky and not to promote your essay writing service. We keep a close eye on things to protect our community from the spam accounts which pass through.

If you're here in the right spirit (excuse the pun) then welcome aboard.
