That's the one.


Seems like a good price. And Total Wine carries it. I will pick some up.

Not sure if I have that precise one, but I have enjoyed all the Plantation Rums. First had them a number of years ago at the Rum Bar in Key West. Bahama Bob knows his sh*t

Binny's carries it locally for about $45, although I've seen it for less online.
D'ussé vsop. After I bought it, I learned this is jay-z's official cognac. I'm sure that's meaningful to some. I like it. Sweet and smooth. Not complex but still delicious.
So I went and bought a bottle of the Plantation XO and tried some on Saturday night. Really, really, really good. What an aroma.

Thanks for the recommendation. This is the best rum I have ever had.
Had a 5 whisky flight of Speyside's tonight:

Aberlour 10 yr
Speyburn 10 yr
Glenlivet 1977 Scotts Selection
Glenfiddich 15 yr Solera
Cragganmore Dewar 12yr

I loved the Cragganmore and the Glenlivet. The Aberlour is a little too intense for my tastes.

I know that some people look down on JW Blue, but I had it a couple years ago, and while I am not a big Scotch drinker, I thought it was really quite good.

Of course, maybe since I am not a big Scotch drinker, I don't really know what I am talking about...

blended scotch is blended scotch, single malt scotch is single malt scotch, two different worlds really, allthough blended scotch (grain + malt) contains a certain amount of malt.

malt is like the spice that provides most of the flavours for the blended scotch...
malt whisky is like drinking 100% spice undiluted

yes, lovely bottle i found in a nearby shop, along with two other funny musically named whisky fair bottles, Longmorn "walking on the moon" and Strathisla "here come the rain again"
I'm (i was) not even a particular fan of Caol Ila, but this one, nomen est omen, is fascinating. Even though cask strength at 56.6%vol , this doesn't need a single drop of water. Smoky yet very balanced.

I don't drink rye, but I really enjoy Dillon's small batch gin (and vodka, but I rarely drink it). Usually available at the LCBO and make just down the QEW in Beamsville.
