I too have acquired a couple of bottles of Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye. It remains to be seen if batch two holds a candle to batch one. Also found a Gooderham and Worts release (a nod to the Toronto Distillery District) and the above noted Breizh Blended Whisky from Breton. It looked lonely on the shelf in a Thunder Bay LCBO.

Laphroaig 15 and another Gooderham and Worts, regretfully the same bottle I picked up last time, so now I have two.

Went to a tasting last night, tried the Northern Harvest and quite frankly, with all due respect, don't waste your money on it. It's a decent Rye but not one of the best in the World. And I own two of it!

Is it so bad to have two Laphroaig 15s? :thumbsup:

I ordered from TWE for the first time in a while to get those bottles unavailable on this side of the pond. The USD-GBP conversion rate is better and the customs charges have largely gone away. Picked up:

Paul John Edited
Spirit of Hven Tycho's Star
Nikka Pure Malt Black
Nikka from the Barrel

So I went to Costco tonight to pick up some stuff. Picked up a bottle of Speyburn Bradan Orach. Thought it was $20 for a 1.75. Got to the counter and it was $13. I went back and made it a 6 pk. Going to get a small cask and do some aging. 8)

Have I read that correct 13 dollars for 1.75 litres??

If it is it is one of the best deals I have ever heard of?

Less than $85 for a 6. Yes, you read that correctly. It is a little sharp on the oak but I intend to put it in a small cask and experiment. :D
