It was sort of my first real bottle of scotch. It's pretty great, but It's also a bit of a sherry bomb, so quite dessert-y which I kind of like. When I went to summerhill to try scotches the guy at the tasting counter recommended it as something of pretty high quality, a great starter scotch, and a...

No no...I might just have to be picky...or...Maybe it's not that big of a deal. I just checked my bottle of Glendronach 12 which is Sherri ed and quite dark but it says natural colour and no chill filtered so that's good. It's just hard to believe that someone would spend all those years aging a wh...

Yikes. The more I read about it the more I'm second thinking scotch in general and might just stick with bourbon. Sorry not my intention to steer you away from scotch and while colouring straight bourbon isn't permittted chillfilteration is common. I think Canadian whisky can have up to 9% of 'othe...

I emailed Laphroaig and while they say it's non chill filtered they "reserve the right" to add colouring to keep everything consistent. I dunno. That seems a little defensive and vague for me and kind of sours the experience. It seems kind of backward for me. Yep. Unless the bottle explic...

Another question about this or any other scotch...is there colourings and more importantly does that really matter? Do true whiskey fans seek out only scotch without it? The caramel e150 additive is from my understanding a pretty big irritant with scotch and other whisk(e)y drinkers, just like whis...

To my shock and amazement Sudbury got 1 case of the Black. It was gone within 24 hours. I passed on it.

Forgot that I can just return it. But I assume I'll probably like it. Is the idea that the quarter casks age the whiskey a little faster - is that why the age isn't labelled? First in the used Makers Mark bourbon barrel, think about 5 years or so and then again in the smaller quarter-casks, maybe a...

I'll be picking up at least 1 but likely 2 bottles. I've only ever had a small sample of Talisker 10 so cant't really judge it against that but Laphroaig QC at this price it's a GREAT deal on an already well priced bottle. It fetches higher prices across the border where the Laphroaig 10 yr can be h...

Re: GLASSWARE

Before the end of October we hope to hold a one day sale of numerous brands of glassware, signs, umbrellas, t-shirts and coasters. We need to clear out our warehouse and we'll have some fantastic prices, a fraction of what you'd pay on ebay and many hard to find oddities like Pauwel Kwak's wood sta...

Does anyone know if there is a way to just search 'all stores' on the new website? I hate having to look up postal codes of LCBOs that I'd be willing to go to just to see if they have the beer. Sometimes things are best the way they are, and I fucking hate the new LCBO website. Also, the 'find simi...

Home Sense or Home Outfitters? I didn't see any at Home Sense and the manager had never heard of that brand.

Re: Heading North...Stack Brewing or Highlander Beer Co?

Heading up north for a camping trip near Hearst. Was thinking of stopping for beers at either Stack or Highlander. Leaning towards Stack in Sudbury as they're harder to find and I haven't had most of their beers...anyone have recent comments on their stuff? Also, if anyone has any connections for g...

Re: WL Weller

I've noticed this has been going fast and I am going to grab a bottle if I can. Just wondering from those who know more about it...I don't understand how it has such similarities to Pappy (about which I know nothing) but is so inexpensive. I've really enjoyed the few bottles I've had and have a few...
