Lol yup. I got there little too late and missed out. Guy in the store told me they sold out in 3 minutes. I then rushed over to the kings cross BCL in newton at 74th ave and King George and managed to score the last bottle

Kings cross location received 14 boxes and they sold out within an hour.

So many people are listing it for around $100 but I doubt people are willing to pay that much for a bottle.

The ones in the bag/box were originally produced for the USA but redirected to Canadian retailers.

For those of you who are considering to buy Northern Harvest on Craigslist, I would strongly advise against it.

As I said before in my post about Northern Harvest, it is a good rye whiskey, and I felt that it was consistent. But this is only my opinion. But let's be honest with ourselves - taste is subjective, and Jim Murray knew he was going to create a ripple effect when he announced it as best whiskey of the year.

I would not go great lengths to pay $100 for this. Your money can be better spent on other spirits. It is good, but not $100, and "world's best whiskey" good.

If you absolutely must have it, drive down to Lynnwood, stop by Total Wine, and go bonkers. There are tonnes of Northern Harvest in Washington State. Take the hit on duty/taxes coming back and then see for yourself.

Alot of places jack up the prices on them. I've searched extensively for them, and they range from $6 to $20 for the exact same ones.

The cheapest was found in a popular tourist shop in DT Victoria. Locally though, you can try Crate & Barrel (Oakridge location). Should be under $10.

I just bought them at Crate and Barrel. Seemed pretty solid for me I think they were $8? something like that

As for the Rye, I've had a bottle and it was good stuff for the money. For $30 it's a fucking steal imo but I would never pay $70 let alone $100 for a bottle though b/c at that point the value is gone for me. I kept debating it with a friend who kept comparing it to $100+ bottles like a Highland 18 etc but that isn't even a fair comparison.

My thoughts are this, the Rye is like a Mazda 3, great car for sure but it ain't no fucking M3. So don't start comparing it or buying it for a price it ain't worth.

I grabbed a bottle from West coast liquor store on Royal Oak in Burnaby yesterday. They had a 1 CASE per person limit. The price is jacked up 48 vs 29 but a better option than craigslist. As of yesterday I saw at least 30 cases remaining but you have to ask the cashier. Might wanna call before hand just to see if they have stock
