    The demand for high end scotch and champagne is crazy. In canada sort by price and bottles of scotch atv15000 cad or champers at 750$ plus, never last long. Not complaining just impressed

    I was buying the Ardbeg Committee releases, but I forogt a couple (at work), and had a lot of problems trying to log on to their site. Too many people trying to get in!

    I'm kind of getting fed up with the skyrocketing prices, largely due to the collecting hordes, and the industry know they can hike the prices accordingly, especially for special editions. I'd say the Octomore is a good example of a very young whsky being sold for £150+ (saw one release at £300).

    I like drinking it. :)

    I adore Ardbeg. I stopped picking up Day releases a few years back, but a buddy of mine is the Regional brand ambassador for Glenmo and Ardbeg so I usually get the opportunity to sample.

    I'd say Alligator is still my favorite but I do love me some Galileo and Rollercoaster.

    As for Japanese whisky, I've been watching that market creep up for over a decade. I used to pick up Yamazki 12yr for $30 a bottle and sold the 18yr for $90 a bottle back when I ran a bottle shop.

    There's so many unique and awesome whiskies on the market anynore!

    I’m stocked. My latest is crown royal special reserve blue. The last extra rare Montreal water made reserve before closing the Lasal distillery in 2003. Only 6 bottles left in Ontario. I got one. Comes with a nice velvet blue bag.

    Here's two I bought last weekend. The Linkwood is really nice. Finished in Bourbon then Sauternes casks. The Ledaig is typical of that distillery. One of my fave peated whiskies.

    I really enjoy Rattray bottlings. Linkwood is fun! Haven't had one in ages!

    Interesting. I have a few bottles of the XR Red (Waterloo) set aside. Will have to pick up one of the LaSalle distillery XRs.

    Looks like there is a good supply in the Pennsylvania LCB stores.

    Wee taster. Funny how some cask strength whiskies need a drop or two of water and some need a lot more. This is one of the latter.

    Hope you're all enjoying some whiks(e)y this weekend. 20190511_140125.jpg

    Recently saw a Balvenie 12y First Fill on the market and it's been incredible tempting. I love the Double Wood 12y. Yay or Nay? Some people told me the First Fill is incredibly different though. Too sweet.
     
  15. mrscotchguy
    Is the First Fill ex-sherry or ex-Bourbon casks?
