@Nozinan Good call on the Talisker. See, this is why I was so happy to get those tickets to the Diageo tasting back in Jan - I could try them without paying so much (as it turned out, I bought three different bottles). I mean, the tickets weren't cheap but many of them were once-in-a-lifetime drams.

@talexander what was the third bottle?

@Nozinan Pittyvaich 29yo ($550) That one is an investment as it's a closed distillery, and pretty damn old. It is also absolutely stunning.
Some old dusty bottles of Willett Single Barrel Rye 7 year old and Willett Single Barrel Rye 14 year old for 65€ and 90€ from my local off license in Cork (Ireland) with a cantankerous owner.
On discount, because apparently no one ever buys it, it's not as good as Jack Daniels and would mainly be suited to making marmalade... :-)
I kid you not. I just smiled and said I have lots of marmalade to make.

@Misty I hope that you cleaned out that guy's stock. Splendid acquisitions to drink, but at those prices you could also go into business as a scalper. It's been about 8 years since I have seen a Willett Family Estate rye or bourbon aged over 10 years old available for sale at a 'dealer', viz. non-scalper, price.
@Misty This should have been posted on Steal of a Deal. Jackpot find.
That’s funny I didn’t realise it was a good price, I just remember you saying ages ago Willet Rye was a great example of the genre.
I went back and picked up another 8 year old Willet as well as some old Blanton’s cask strength. Just opened the Blanton’s, very nice and no I will not be adding it to my homemade marmalade.

I found a place in Pompano Beach that's selling a wonderful French NAS single malt, Brenne, for $35, a price that is exactly one half of what it costs from Total Wine & Liquor, the massive retailer that generally offers very competitive pricing. Very nice on the nose, fruit notes including banana, it's quite a relaxing, enjoyable single malt experience. Bought 3 bottles, one to give to a couple having us over for dinner shortly.

@paddockjudge They has an open bottle at the airport and I had a small taste. Very nice, right up there with the Don Julio 1942. I’m going to crack the bottle when we have our annual Mexico reunion party.
