Had to Google Saville center, had no idea where that was...
By the University? Not sure about any shops close to that area as I usually stick to the South side.

Liquor Depot and Liquor Barn are owned by the same corporation and smaller outlets have limited selection.
If you're looking for specialty Single Malts most shop employees will refer you to one of their Flagship Stores.

...and those would be Wine and Beyond

My Go-To is the Windermere location (about 5 minute drive from home)
... they have a Single Malt Isle that's about 40 foot long and stocked floor to ceiling ...Both Sides!

another smaller south side shop I like is Keg and Cork
http://www.kegncork.com/

If you can locate a Solo Liquor they often have fair pricing, but limited selection
That's where I wiped out their Nadurra stock at ~$70/bottle

http://sololiquor.com/locations/

The absolute Best prices, but smallest selection is still Superstore Liquor

Yup, close to the University. Staying at the Travelodge on 55th I think it is. So technically I'm in the south end. Thanks though, that's lots to work with. I'll probably pester you closer to May.

Superstore does have fabulous pricing but not what I'm looking for when I'm in town in terms of selection. I'll hit up the one in Medicine Hat in July when I'm there again. Stock is the same at all of them pretty much.

Mostly looking for Glendronach's again. Still fearful of the Forman-Brown takeover so I'll buy what I can while I can. Single casks, Allardice, Parliament or even 14 Virgin Oak if it's still hovering around. Hoping to pull four bottles out this time. Maybe grab a Hielan at the airport on the way out.

5 Vegas Apocalypse cigar with a new Cabernet Sauvignon. Good combo. Nice even burn and solid ash with a medium strength. Compliments the wine flavor.

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

I can't afford the GD's for a while
My no payment/interest for 90 days on the Black Friday 65" OLED is due this month

So I chase the bargain flyers now, got these on the way home today...


I feel a little ashamed for compromising,
but I do have a new pair of kick-ass Walnut cocktail tables









The new 18" 4800 watt twins from Funk Audio will put me out of new Single Malt purchases for quite a while.

TOO many expensive hobbies cutting into my early retirement plans
