    Both Diageo and Pernod Ricard are investing big money in Scotland expanding existing distilleries and/or building new ones.

    Damn! At first I just skimmed over the posting and was going admonish you about "passing up" on a PHC 122.6. Then I read it more carefully, the PHC 122.6 is a great find.

    Congrats!

    I passed PHC at several stores this last week. anywhere from $89 - $129 a bottle. Just couldn't pull the trigger.

    Not all PHC are the same. All are good a few are great!

    That is a great price and would have me thinking twice,cheapest I've seen is $119.99 and was rather tempted then.

    Under $110 would have me putting one in the cabinet for a rainy day.

    Stopped by the local store to get a little face time and passed on all the normal suspects, including EC21 at $145.

    Places just dying to stick it someone. I saw a store that had some Four Roses Small Batch (standard) @ $119. It's really sort of amusing.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
