@OdysseusUnbound My personal never winning dates back to 2015. Even my family and friends can no longer turn the tide.

@OdysseusUnbound You’re a model of consistency!
In 2014 I got a Handy, and got to taste from the Stagg and the Weller.
Since then the only thing I won was 8 bottles of Weller 107 one year, and all but one of them ended up in other people’s hands.
I didn't buy Loch Lomond Single Grain Whisky, 46% abv. It is dirt cheap. (€20,00) Its quality is even reasonable. I would have bought the peated version, but it was not available at the shop.

Was just looking at the "new arrivals" at the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission was interested in but did not buy the new offering by Royal Salute the Coronation of Charles lll 52.3% ABV blended whisky. Which is a blend of 53 different malt and grain whiskies selling for $35,000.00 plus sales tax of $3920.00 to be added. But one must remember that is Canadian dollars.
What a load of Piffle, Twaddle and Codswallow say what! Almost brings to mind the Sheep Dip blended by Richard Patterson. However, the tasting notes do make it sound like a great Saturday night pour.
@Jonesz, don’t be so quick to judge.
Piffle has become a scarce commodity because its natural habits has been overrun by snufflegus. You’re lucky to even see it.
The last producer of twaddle closed 5 years ago, so it’s no surprise it’s a rare find.
As for Codswallow, I can’t remember the last time I saw one in mint condition.
So I can totally understand what someone might be tempted to charge $35000 for such a blend.
@Nozinan I hear you but should bring to your attention that I misspelled Codswallop in my original post.That may be why you haven't seen any as of late! Anyway I do find it interesting that there are folks that have deep enough pockets to buy such a whiskey and actually be given tasting notes so they can savour it for years to come. The 21 YO Royal Salute by Chivas sells for $200. here in Manitoba. At that price one could buy 175 bottles in lieu of the coronation bottle.
@Jonesz and does the coronation bottle taste 175 times better?
