    Oh man, I haven't had a stogie in years. I'm pretty sure I have 2 or 3 left in my humidor that are dried to a crisp. I could probably reconstitute them, but I've got nowhere to smoke them these days... I need to finish building my house.

    Ohh! what a surprise to find Whiskey talk in Head-Fi. Im definitely becoming a subscriber to this thread. That being said, I've had the chance to try a "Kavalan" whiskey lately. Seems to be from taiwan and boy, its good!

    Taiwan May on the surface be funny to scotch drinkers but China ( understand not same...) produces a top notch wine made by the henessay familly in Hunan province I believe. I have 6 bottles and will cherish them over the next decade.

    That's awesome, I was curious about the wine makings I keep hearing about. One of my favorite brewers here is Chicago exports limitedly into China.

    If you run into this at your local Costco, go ahead and give it a try.
    Rumor has it it is likely a non-premium Macallan of some sort, and I like it better than Macallan 12 year or even Gordon Macphail Macallan 19.
    *Don't drink it right away after opening. I did not like it at all this way. Open it, triy a small sip, cork it back and let it sit there for at least a couple of weeks. Add some water and enjoy.

    Costco usually snags these values at a killer price, not because they are junky, but rather good juice that doesn't fit the flavor profile of the distillery.

    The low price usually comes from a distillery's desire for a quick flip and respect for anonymity. Indy bottles like G&M have been around for decades so they have built a reputation for killer quality for their independent selections.

    I wouldn't be surprise if it is Macallan juice. They have been know known to sell to Kirkland/Costco pretty often. Just be aware, since it doesn't list a distillery, there could easily be multiple variations floating around. Be sure to snap a photo of the SKU and Costco price sign to be sure!

    Good looking out!

    Anyone else buy every year of Ardbeg Day releases or other special editions? I mostly buy those and have been buying Japanese whiskey ever since I first went to Tokyo in 1991 and prices were so cheap back then. Even in 2011 I believe that I could find Yamazaki 18 for $150 or so locally. The demand and prices for Japanese whiskey is out of hand!
