Recent haul that arrived safely, especially during all the C-Post "issues"

Whisky budget depleted for the holidays.

Picked up a bottle. It's a good drink. Very smooth for a 12, and easy drinking. Lots of fruit/sherry on the palate, caramel, raisin/grape, vanilla flavours. Someone mentioned Christmas cake on Whiskey Exchange and that's really not far off the mark lol.

It's all from whisky collectors/friends I made throughout the years. I paid more then what they were at MSRP but less than what the secondary wants for them.

I usually open bottles when I have backups haha. I'm down for swaps. The nikka 21 and yama12 in the photo are all backups of backups....so I'd be down for swapping those. Once I find more backups of the Yoichi 15 and the the rum wood, I'll open them as well.

My friends and I used to only open once we found a 2nd bottle as well but eventually thought it was dumb to torture ourselves. We buy to enjoy not to collect or sell so we just say fuck it and drink it lol

Since it's a back up of a back up you down to open the Nikka 21 and of course we'd offer up something close in price or if you prefer a straight up trade that can work too. Let's talk!

Which brings me to my next question and feel free to PM if you prefer but how much did you get the 12 and 21 for, in fact how much did you pay for all of them?

As good as a whisky. Smoky, peaty, sweet rummy goodness.

I find it interesting that Weller Special Reserve is usually $5-10USD less than Buffalo Trace in the US, but here the BCLS has Weller $3 more than Buffalo.

Weller is made by Buffalo Trace. (As is Eagle Rare)

I asked this a few months ago and have now tried many bourbons and scotch under $70. I'm no expert but I like:

Bourbon
Wild Turkey 101 $37
Buffalo Trace $40

Scotch
Naked Grouse $43
Aberfeldy 12 $60
Highland Park 12 $62
Aberlour 12 $66

Naked Grouse is my absolute favorite drink under $45. Buffalo is an easier drink for those new to whiskey. Highland Park is probably the worst choice of those mentioned for a new whiskey drinker, but its good once you like smokey peat.

I've asked before about =<$30 whiskey, and while some are drinkable neat you really get a lot better at $40-50.

Gin - Bombay
Whiskey - Forty Creek or Alberta Premium
Vodka - Sobieski

I’ve been making a lot of whiskey sours lately (minus the egg white). Juice from 2 lemons + 6oz whiskey + 4 oz simple syrup and a couple dashes of bitters = two delicious drinks for me and the missus.

It's already available, the 19th release is for the full set. You can already buy individual bottles at pretty much an BC Liquor Store

heading to japan next month, interested in getting some quality whiskey that i can sip rather than the shit i've had that's for mixing haha.

what would be some good ones to pick up, in your collective opinion, for someone that doesn't know ass from elbows when it comes to whiskey?
