Dave, your advice helped me as well. I am currently in Vancouver for three days on business, and just a quick search on this forum and I found this post.
I visited the location on Cambie, by 39th... that one is under heavy construction / renovation right now and it's .. well... interesting shall I say, to find one's way around it.
I drove by another store further up on Cambie, going down the hill toward the Cambie bridge, around 7th or thereabouts... It looked decently sized, is that worth a stop as well?
I picked up a few bottles nevertheless, Talisker 18, Bowmore Islay CS (no mention of age, anyone know?), and a bottom shelf McClelland's Islay that I happen to like.
