It's really not bad, but not as good as the Rosebank F&F.

I know this is an old thread, but I found this whisky at a store near me for $18.99. Is it worth getting for this price? Or should I put that towards a better whisky?

I'd buy 2. Maybe 3.

I tried it a couple of years ago and didn't really think much of it at the time - I can remember it being very drinkable but just not 'exciting' because of how light it was. Having said that I was very, very new to whisky back then, so perhaps I'd appreciate it a lot more now for what it is. Anyway, for $18.99 (about £10?), I'd definitely pick one up to try it - I know I would at that price just to give it another go :D

I'd buy 2 maybe 3 CASES at that price! This is a perfectly nice lowland dram and great everyday drinking. It won't be the best thing you will drink, but it certainly will be far from the worst. If in doubt buy one, try it and then go back for more. $19? C'mon, you've got to try it.

Gov, this is a very fair description. It's light and easy and I think of it as a summer dram. Not a patch on Bladnoch if you're after a Lowland, but then it's only $18.99, so worth getting if only to see if it's to your taste.

The 10 year is still selling for $39.99 here in California. I'm very curious as to why the price is so low there.

I get periodic deals from a local store that is rotating stock, but never that good of a deal. There's another store nearby that still sells Forty Creek Three Grain even though it's been discontinued for the last 3 years.

I might be tempted to get two at that price.

Thanks gents! I think I will pick one up at this price. It is a very good price because I have seen it higher at other places by me. This is a large food store, so, I don't know, maybe it is mis-priced? I'll take it though!!
