LCBO Discontinues Aberlour A'Bunadh!! : (

Postby Toronto_Andrew73 » Mon Jan 14, 2008 4:12 pm

Grab 'em while you can. There's only a few left.

The LCBO recently listed Aberlour A'Bunadh as "Discontinued". :shock:

I have 1/4 bottle of batch #14 left and I have to say it's one of the best scotches I've ever had! Totally unique, tangy, super-fuity, just incredible. Nothing quite like it.

So when I saw that the line was being discontinued here in Ontario I drove for an hour north of Toronto after work to grab one of the last bottles (a batch #18). I post more about that on the tasting board.
I wrote LCBO to find out what the deal is

here's the official story:

Dear Mr. Hunter,

Thank you for your inquiry.

The Aberlour A'Bunadh has been offered through our seasonal Premium Fixture Program. For the last two years we have purchased limited quantities once per year.

Unfortunately no decision has been made at this time to repeat the order.

For further information you may wish to contact the agent representing Aberlour A'Bunadh, Corby Distilleries Limited ( phone # 416-369-1859 ).


Thank you again for contacting the LCBO.

Time to find an importer, or at least someone that would ship to you.....

Bummer.

Gee, I only have to drive 2 hours west into the next Province to find A'bunadh aplenty.

I think it's a terrible shame that the LCBO is discontinuing so many outstanding whiskies. As the largest purchaser of alcohol in the world, we truly have such a pitiful variety.
The good news is that we are still better off than Tequila enthusiasts whose only option for 100% Agave tequila is Patron, and maybe 2 or 3 others of less distinction.

It's time to privatize the LCBO, for greater variety and price reductions.

yeah no kidding, Patron (admittedly a pretty good tequila) or Cabo (not bad but waaay overpriced) or 4 copas (bleh!). A few summers ago they had a few more....they really seem to be "streamlining" their stock in all areas. Soon it'll be nothing but Glenfiddich, Crown Royal and Canadian Club.
