...because I'd never seen it in our liquor store before and it shocked me by it's mere presence. There were only two bottles there so I didn't want to leave it for fear of never seeing it again. Has anyone tried it? It was $78.08. I fear I've overpaid.
It is $100 at the LCBO - I recall seeing it in France for 40 Euros or so, so your cost is reasonable.
Will watch out for that Scapa. Thanks.
I've been reading that you want to get the 15yo Longmorn that was released earlier but that wasn't available to me. I should have known that it wasn't great, the packaging was way too fancy.
Well the 15yrs is one of the worst dram I tried in the 100 + I have on my list. I read the 16 is better and at that price you were not ripped off IMO.
Great price (for Canada -_- ...) and also a great whisky ! I had the chance to try it thanks to Frank Biskupek (The Glenlivet/Pernod-Ricard ambassador for Canada) and wasn't disapointed. As Jay Rain mentionned, it's a little on the light side but with great floral notes. Great pick in my opinion !

Was it a Scapa Orcadian 16yo? That has just become available at my NSLC. It's $110 though. Is it worth it Jay?
