Probably more Powell & Mahoney Ginger than anyone other than me wants, but WalMart has it for $41 a case (6) and nine bucks more gets you free shipping. Mine are already on the way. ;)

I'm enjoying the Four Roses Single Barrel Barrel Strength (OESK) and while it is very good, it isn't that much better than standard Single Barrel for me to chase down more of it. I realize it is Single Barrel and will vary, but $38 vs $70 is kinda stiff when $38 is stellar!

I don't know how available it is outside of the Pacific Northwest, but hands down my favorite whiskey is Pendleton's 1910.  Very smooth, very flavorful, and around $40.

I wonder where they get the barrels of rye from in Canada. It's on the NC special items list so it is available.

Veeery Caramely too. Dangerous stuff if you like Canadians. I like Canadians.

It's Scotch weather.  Hoping to walk over to my favorite Scotch bar during the big storm this weekend.

Don't think we've seen this in the topic before. I'm going to use it as a shopping list!

Picked up the Laphroaig 10 yr on Friday before the storm, actually.  Also like the Ardbeg.  Both very nice alternatives to a more expensive Lagavulin.  You have to like the peat, though.

Some good ones on that list. I am a fan of the Highland Park, Ardbeg, and the Aberfeldy. I have heard good things about Bowmore, which will be a purchase of mine soon.

I was gonna add the Laphroiag 10 and Ardbeg as well as the Aberlour 12 as the ones I enjoyed most. I love how a lot of the 10 year scotches might be a little less smooth but seem to be more flavorful. That Laphroiag 10 is just killer.

Always keep a laphroig 10 around. Its our house whiskey really. Make the occasional smoking gun with it but usually just for sipping.My son got us a bottle of laphroig 15 for Christmas. Very nice. I'm not drinking until next month so really shouldn't be thinking about this...

Yeah, tasty stuff. The 15 is sublime but obviously pricey. I can buy the 10 more often.  ;)

Laphroaig 10 is my go-to as well. Caol Ila is another great one if you're into peat.

Caol Ila? I never heard of it or have seen it as far as I know. Is it an Islay?
