Diageo has already hiked up the prices in the LCBO though - a bottle of Ardbeg 10 in Manitoba is still about $60.00 .

...Now I only need to get a cheaper source of ardbeg. I know this girl that went away and I made a list of SMS to bring back but I might have to perform cunnilingus in order to get my ardbeg.

Another way of putting it (that might sound slightly more sympathetic to Diaego - even if the net result would be the same) would be to say that the (Canadian) importer could not accept the price demanded by Diaego.
An example is Norway (which also has a monopoly distribution system) where Talisker 18 is still available but now to the "happy" price of almost 110â‚¬ a bottle. ThatÂ´s what you get for turning a bottle into "the best SMSW in the world".
Norway is of course a high taxed spirits country but they do manage to sell fx Glenlivet XXV for just above 150â‚¬.
