    Were the Kroger FRSBs barrel strength? If so, that's awesome (great price, too).

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2013

    From the front they looked just like regular FRSB until I took it off the shelf and it had a sticker on the back saying that these came from a barrel selected by Kroger. So it's not a Private Selection where they do it barrel strength (I do have a 14 year OBSK like that), but it's still a damn good value for FRSB which usually runs $11 more.

    What was $40? Surely not the EC12!

    Moral of the story; don't shop for bourbon in Ontario, unless you have to.

    Correct!
    For those of us that live here - and don't travel - there is NO choice*. Believe it or not, Bourbon prices are actually not bad (relative to US prices) compared to Scotch (relative to European prices)


    *unless someone wishes to PM me with name of US retailer that ships to Canada.

    I guess that explains it. Just for kicks, I plugged in a 750 ml bottle ($20CDN) of 90 proof whiskey into the Canadian Duty Calculator--which resulted a total duty of $46.82 for B.C. Yikes!
