The Kilkerran 8 is great stuff, and very "Campbeltown."

As I purchased my Old Ezra 7 Year Barrel Proof today, (it was in the locked fancy pants whisky cabinet) the nice lady from the LCBO said “I’ll take this to the front if you want to keep shopping”. And so I kept shopping. I almost bought a Lagavulin 16, since I love it to an irrational degree, and it came with a “free” Glencairn glass. I did not buy it, however, since it’s recently climbed to $144/bottle and that’s just insulting. I’m hoping it will go “on sale” soon for $120-$130, in which case I’m sure I’ll rationalize purchasing a bottle. I also stopped myself from purchasing a Glenlivet 18 that’s on sale. It’s not an over the top world beater, but it’s a nice whisky to sip when you “just want to sit in an armchair and don’t want to think and analyse every aspect of a whisky” (thanks to @fiddich1980 for that turn of phrase).

@OdysseusUnbound Same sort of ridiculous price for the Lag 16 here too. I passed and bought another 8 year old instead. The Glenlivet 18 is overpriced everywhere. I have been going with the Arran 18 and the Glengoyne 18 which are both very good and about $40 less than the 'Livet.

@BlueNote I got my Glengoyne 18 for the same price as the Glenlivet 18 is currently selling for.

@OdysseusUnbound That surprises me. Must be the Ontario price. Both the Glengoyne and the Arran were $120 the last time I got them from Alberta. Take a look at the current sale prices from Craft Cellars. 15% off everything.
