It's good to be first. :D Why certainly. I'm all for variety rather than quantity (be quiet Willie).

Damn! Wrote a response and the site logged me out! Weird!
Anyways, I made a clever response ending with a gentle jibe at Willie JJ but it's gone now. Oh well.

I ended with the comment that "In the alternative, if the plan is to offer 2/3 pints of SM at the price of a regular shot, make mine an HP 40 yo please."

Geez, I didn't even get a chance to say anything before you guessed what it was going to be. :)

Willie:
The comment started with my being happy with the bottles already available. I then referred to the various sizes of bottle available in Canada:, "20 cl for the penurious and frugal; "Mickies" for those who want to stash their dram discreetly; "26 ers" for most of us who appreciate dramming with a proper sized bottle; and 40 pounders" and "texas mickey"s for those who prefer their drams in epic quantity proportions, like Willie JJ and others". :D

I voted yes. In Sweden you buy whisky by the centiliter (10ml).
