Oban 14 is quite delicious though.

Some red breast cask strength, drift less Glen rye cask strength and a JD gentleman's Jack Pew edition.

Thank you for the recommendation.

The 14 Caribbean cask is very tasty.

I also got the 15 Sherry cask and it is also a very good scotch.

Saw a Red Beast 21 selling for $229. Has anyone tried that?

And now I am jealous, the 15 Sherry Cask has been on my wish list for a bit now, just a tad expensive to pull the trigger without a good reason (for me).

I can usually get Caribbean cask around $50 but the lowest I have seen the sherry cask is ~$130

As I experiment with different gin, this is what I picked up at Total Wine today. Seemed like a good deal.

The St George's are similar, but I prefer them, and they're not any more. But the Oregon is plenty good too. Gin, like silver/plato tequila, really shouldn't be that expensive.

Apart from the Teeling Small Batch Irish & the Glenfiddich experiment #4 Fire & Cane I can't think of any more Rum-Finished whiskies. As much as I'd like to indulge in the Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14yo, I can't justify the $140 australian price tag. As long as I can keep picking up the #4 Glenfiddich for $80, I'm happy.

That's not hugely more expensive than here (around $80 US), but it's enough to put it out of my comfort range for buying. I haven't grabbed a bottle of it in a couple of years anyway.

One co-worker bought me a bottle of Skrewball, I hope you falkers were right.

Another picked me up a bottle of Zin-Port at her default winery.


Damn, I'm on call until Jan 6

I've bitten the bullet. I'm thinking we have to spoil ourselves sometimes, it's almost Christmas, and I've worked a bunch of overtime this week. I've bought a bottle of Balvenie Caribbean Cask. I was not disappointed, I love the lingering after-taste. But at this price it is but a treat I shall savour until the bottle is empty.

One of the big liquor stores in Champaign (Binny's) has Jameson's on sale this weekend for $16.99/btl. That's pretty cheap. I'm thinking about fighting the pre-Xmas crowds just to stock up at that price.
