Anyone try the Heather Ales Fraoch 22 Auchentoshan yet? I freaking hated it. Reminded me of Radical Road's Canny Man, which I also hated. Too much scotch nose on Fraoch 22 took so much away from the beer for me. If I'm going to drink scotch, which I love, I want the warming burn of it... I will not...

I recommend bourbon......because bourbon is awesome! W.L. Weller 12 year is going to be released at the LCBO in about two weeks. This is a well-regarded bourbon. It should retail for $45. It is the same juice as Pappy Van Winkle. Exact same mashbill and distilled at the same distillery (Buffalo Tra...

Sometimes I'd prefer more sessionable beer options. A well made sessionable ale/lager that one will want to drink over an evening usually trumps a high gravity-barrel aged-rich and viscous imperial whatever most days of the week.
I enjoy Pilsner Urquel and the like.

:lol: no but why delist after a relatively short run and reassign with a new (actually older) product code. i think they caught on that this will sell for more.

.@ADAMS_APP Rochefort 10 Trappist ale will indeed be reappearing! We don't have an exact date yet but it will be 330 mL and item #6569 #beer


That was me asking about the Rochefort 10. Curious as to the price hike on this one.

Muskoka Brewery ‏@MuskokaBrewery 1h So the stuff that didn't sell last year is being re-packaged and sold as a vintage release? lol I can't be the only one around here with ZERO interest in these Muskoka "cellar aged" beers, can I?. +1 Really put off by this practice, I haven't boug...

I would also really like to get your recipe and is Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge a decent substitute for Goudenband?

.... begging to get products in but I no longer have the patience. Instead I just pick a few products a year now and drink a lot less.. My feelings exactly. If I didn't have relatives in the Toronto area I wouldn't bother with the limited product listings at all and while Saison Dupont was supposed...

Re: Saison Dupont availability

If there is a specific store you'd like to see it at, also let us here at RR know and we will do all we can on our part to get it listed too! Cheers, Could you try Sudbury again, at any one of the three stores? As another poster wrote, I'd buy 1-2 bottles every week or every other week because I ca...

Re: Saison Dupont availability

If you do not see it on your shelves ask for it to be listed at your local store! When a single case arrived at my local downtown Sudbury LCBO last summer I bought up just a few because I assumed it be a semi-permanent product. Not so, haven't seen it on the shelf since. I'm simply not going to go ...

So the LCBO is bringing Carpano Antica in the Vintages line. http://lcbo.ca/lcbo-ear/lcbo/product/details.do?language=EN&itemNumber=360248 Not sure when but this is really the best sweet vermouth you can get, either for mixing or to drink on its own. It is also relatively well priced. This and ...

I finally picked up an Ardbeg Uigeadail... it's $20 cheaper in Alberta, so I made a quick stop in the calgary airport. I'm surprised how different it is from the standard Ardbeg... much bigger flavour, but I find the iodine more forward than the smoke that I love. Nice underlying, gentle sweetness ...

Thanks guys. I think I'm biased because when the more perishable Ontario craft beer finally does appear on the shelves here, I frequently pass on it because I make the assumption that it's older stock that won't sell in the more populated areas. Great to hear that it's drinking well, I'll pick up a ...
