    Yeah, I have to figure out the right occasion to crack mine open. And then set aside some for Chainwhip

    Picked up some Compass Box Asyla, Springbank 10, and Glangarioch Family Reserve at the LCBO. All quite tasty but the Springbank is exceptional.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    Amen. I found a bottle of 12 year old bottled by Hart Bros at 46% for $48. Best deal in scotch I've ever known.

    Picked up a Balvenie Sample pack (12 Doublewood, 17 Doublewood, 14 Caribbean Cask). Probably wouldn't have done it for the price if I knew it was only 50 mL each - not paying attention.

    Passed on the new Brora 35 OB for 480ish?

    The old sample packs with 12DW, 15SB and 21Port were a better value. I stocked up on them when TPS had some sort of odd deal for like $12 for the 3 pack.

    Yes, I remember buying that version in the past that included the 21 portwood for $20, which was a much, much better deal. Only reason I picked the new version was because I had not tried the Caribbean Cask, but for the price of the sampler, you'd be on the way to a half a full bottle! I wasn't paying attention and thought they were 100 mL like the Glenrothes sampler packs. Balvenie has had a stratospheric rise in price - I have a couple bottles of 15 I stocked away for 40ish.

    Lucky, the 15 year is one of my favorite scotches and these days it's hard to find for less than $90, at least where I shop.
