    Are those Canadian $? Ardberg 10 was on sale before I went on vacation for $50 (from $57) here in Massachusetts. I'd hate to see that one rise over $60- $65 (or any amount for that matter).

    Those are Canadian dollars, but it's expensive in any currency. I thought it was pricey at $77.

    I think this may have something to do with the fact that Ardbeg was mothballed until just a few years ago. The prices may be reflecting the fact that the old stock is running out.

    I might just bunker a few if that's the case.

    Chivas Regal 12. Everyone likes to diss this stuff, but I'm enjoying the heck out of it right now. The sweet Speyside character is well represented, with a whiff of smoke in the background. The grain holds it all together without dominating as in cheaper blends.

    Polished off the Old Pulteney 12 with 2 generous pours. What a great valued whiskey that one is.

    It seemed the right time so I opened with a Balvenie Portwood 21 slid over to Royal Salute 21 and finished off with a Glenmorangie Original.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    How do you find the Portwood 21?

    I would start in a liquor store.

    Sorry.

    I'm not much of a scotch guy, but I have enjoyed the Glenmorangie Portwood Finish in the past. Would it and the Portwood 21 be similar?
