If you do find something you like, you can always find similar products at the local KGBO.
Having seen the contents, my apologies for recommending this too soon
. LCBO received a "poor man's version"
of the calendar - recognizable distilleries are virtually missing and all 3 I was looking for are missing.
only one single grain
no blended malt
very poor examples of American whiskey/Bourbon (craft whiskey is far from the quality of craft beer relative to the Macros)
I could be wrong (again) but given the number in stock (~1250 as of yesterday) and the fairly unknown distilleries represented, I highly doubt these will sell out before Christmas. If that's the case, 20-30% markdown is inevitable, so I'd wait.
As a whisky geek, given that I've never had a whisky from 5 of the distilleries represented, I'll probably keep the set at full price.
