Pacific Northwesterners

Anybody know where I can pick up a bottle of Ardbeg Renaissance, Supernova, or Lord of the Isles?

Either in the Seattle area or BC?

Thanks

Other than the Supernova, I'm not sure that the others ever made it to North America. Washington is liquor control so I think it might just be a matter of checking state availability of Supernova and getting it to a store near you (if it is still available).

What about California? I am going to be in Palm Desert for a couple weeks in December with the famly.

California's your best bet. The Washington State Liquor Board inventories every single bottle of liquor here:

Search by category "whisky-scotch" and you'll see the extent of it.

I suspect Oregon isn't much better.

Yesterday I found a place with it on the shelves. I suspect there will be others with it as well. Check on the K&L and Hi Time websites.

I was looking at Hi Time's website. Do they have shops in CA or just a wharehouse that they ship from?

Costa Mesa store with one of the better wine selections you will find. Trace and Forrest are the whisky nuts there. (Forrest is registered on Whisky Mag).
