For the single malt lover
 
I come across liquor store on on work trip quite a bit. I usually go and check out the local mom/pop shops for dusty bottles at cheap old prices. Some times I strike out, other I hit gold.

What are some of your recent grabs?

Here's a few from the last trip

I've been told the Caol Ila is the best islay scotch there is. Nice grabs

Re: For the single malt lover
 
While I do love Caol Ila especially DE, I would have to say Argbeg for me is the best, the Ten is my go to just something about the oily dram I crave. I am a peathead through and through . I do really love almost all the Islay's along with Islands.

Some fantastic aged Islays from here:
http://www.smwsa.com/

Highly recommended. They have a lot of Caol Ila and Laffies bottlings worth checking out!

Not sure being in Canada I could use them for bottles. I am going to poke around now to see . Thanks for link

Re: For the single malt lover
 
Oh yessir you can! Canadian site is smws.ca
PM me and I can provide details of how to make it work.
(I'm in Winnipeg and have no issue procuring bottles)

You know what after taking a look, I have seen quite a bit of their bottling in Calgary at kensington wine market.

The Arbeg looks new. Their Corrywrecken is superb. I'd be interested if this one has the same grip.

That's a great find.

Good show on the Macallans - this is the last of the age statement bottlings for Canada.

Re: For the single malt lover
 
Yeah thats why I got a couple these are '93, '94 so they were bottled a couple years a go, not much here in Edmonton that isn't already jacked up in price. The Ardbeg is new from "Ardbeg days" back at the end of May. Corrywrecken was good but I think they have better offerings from the distillery. Cant wait for Supernova's release in about a month, Manitoba is suppose to release it tomorrow FYI.


PM sent as well

Yep - they run SMWS.ca - Andrew Fergusson would be your man. Tastings every first Friday at the store. If you like cask strength and something different....

Where did you find that! Kensington is still waiting, and has no price yet. Give it a try - is it bigger than the Corrywrecken?
