    That is actually a really good price for the MaC 18.... It runs $155 +tax here....

    I was thinking the same. It's running around $160 plus tax around here, so not a bad deal really.

    How has the relocation to Canada been going for you, anyway? And nice pick-up on the Caol Ila 12. I love that stuff!

    Thanks for asking. The relocation went well, I'm just still reeling from the sticker shock I experience every time I go to spend what's left of my paycheck after the gov has had its 45% take. Alcohol can be 30-100% higher and groceries are on average 30% higher with an added 13% sales tax on top of that (also paying 3 times as much for car insurance which has gone from $435 to $1210/yr). I guess the real problem here is that retail prices haven't adjusted to reflect the strong Can$. If the Can$ was still at $0.70 USD then I'd understand some of the differential.

    Talisker 10. That stuff just keeps getting more expensive. Counted myself lucky to find a bottle at under $60.

    It's killing me too. Goes for $70 in Ontario. I really enjoy this one and have always felt a need to have a bottle on hand but I'm starting to question that now.
