Talisker 18 is my favorite whisky so far (many still to try). I have an open bottle, as well as a closed bottle waiting in my cupboard. However, when I bought that backup bottle, I discovered that here in Arizona, there only seem to be a couple of bottles left (I checked a LOT of liquor stores). All of the stores are saying that they don't know when they'll be able to get more.
K&L Wines online has like 5 bottles left (but can't ship spirits to AZ), and their web site says Tali 18 is going away! [at least for the U.S.]
Has anybody here heard any specifics about what is going on with Talisker 18? Are they going to stop shipping to North America for good? Is this temporary? What about availability in other states?
I thought perhaps somebody here has done some additional research on this, and any info would be appreciated.
