    I picked up a bottle of Great Kings Street and three Glenmo minis yesterday.

    If you're looking for an inexpensive Islay expression I'd give Black Bottle 5 yrs (10yrs if you can get it) or Islay Mist 8 a try. You may find them a better value.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    Haven't heard of or seen those around here. But I'll keep an eye out for them.

    What with all the love all over the place, I picked up a 375 for $20. First pour was OK, but I poured it next to HP12, and that kind of overwhelmed it. I think the GKS is more subtle, more gentle. I'm still not really acquainted with it.

    Totally different animals. GKS is a easy drinking everyday blend. I love HP too but I try not to compare blends to single malts. I compare GKS to other $45 blends and I find it very good.

    Grabbed a bottle of Ardbeg Alligator. Sounded interested and I do love me some Islay's.

    Hopefully this is as good as their other offerings in this range.

    Grabbed a bottle of Dalmore 21 for a buddy. $74.99 seemed like a great price?
