its almost identical to my GD 10 y/o single cask, and a couple bucks less.

You're going to LOVE that one if you love PX GlenDronach's
Like the 15 y/o Revival on Steroids with more flavor/complexity and 53.8% abv.
(for almost half the price!)

There is just no better bang for the buck for any spirit IMHO




I also grabbed another Laphroiag Quarter Cask for $43 , cheap for a peat monster at 48% abv.

I would love to buy more Tequila, but up here its pricing is even more ridiculous than Single Malt Scotch,
Most of the good stuff (100% Agave) like Cabo Wabo (Reposado) is $80+ .

Selection sucks too, you can't even find a true Mezcal anymore (the one only one with the worm)

P.S. My favorite store, the one and only local Co-op in Edmonton just blocks from home, was bought out by Liquor Depot (the Walmart of Liquor in Edmonton with dozens of stores)

Apparently Co-op was looking to expand operations like they have in Calgary (15+ locations)
But several real estate deals fell through and they threw in the towel completely and pulled the plug on Edmonton altogether

I will wait until the fiscal year end to close my membership/account and cash in my membership dividends
...likely only worth a couple hundred $$$ (membership originally cost me $1 in 2012)
Never tried BenRiach 2000 single malt interesting ...........Some Petrossian Imperial Reserv Perscicus caviar followed by some pan-seared branzino in organic whale blubber and Mangalitsa Pork Bacon wrappped sea scallops with lobster and some '98 Dom Ruinart Brut for dinner and Godiva Signature truffles after dinner with Cohiba Cognac Martell and a phat Cuban .................. yea that would be good ..

On a more serious note your Laphroiag Quarter Cask and BenRiach 2000 Single Cask 12 y/o single malts sound like they might be good the last scotch I had was an ordinary Johnnie Walker Red can you can find anywhere !

Had one of these I got from a friend at an Anheuser-Busch Wholesaler until it caught an errant tennis ball

Back in the early to mid 2K's I used to have some cold ones (Bud or Bud light) and chat up the cute babes on the dating sites. I had a lot of fun (mutually ) and weekend getaways ,got lucky almost always (lot's ) and met some nice gals even had nice relationships with 3 of them and usually friends with benifits otherwise it was like shooting fish in a barrel best thing that ever happpened to dating (* if u ain't stupid enough to get used ) IMO .

Graffiti on bathroom walls, that's a creative suggestion. //// Drink Perrier mineral water, and water your lawn with it too. ...Hollywood elite. ...Whiskey?

And Walmart (California), where do you get your bottled water from?

Costco or Grocery superemarket mountain spring or other bottled water here , lawns are for letting die and replacing with drought resistant landscaping in CA these days unless U are Hollywood 1% or othewise want to pay the prohibitive costs to keep it green .

Cuban cigars obviously come from same in a pinch Dominicans are fine othewise .

Well I gave in and ordered a two tap keg fridge conversion yesterday. Got a fridge from buddy at work for free so all in all I will be in for well under 400 for everything including filling my CO2 up. Actually under 300 if I would stop buying faucet handles and other crap lol.

May I ask where you ordered from? I'm looking at putting one in the basement. Assuming I ever actually do any more work down there.
