great info, thanks guys! b1os I'm going to look at some local option instead but thank you for the offer. Will contact Naz (Perfume Shoppe) and see if I can get samples through their program
thanks Rob! It sounds like the consensus is it's good juice but that price is pushing it. I think I'm going to pass on this for now and look around over the next few months or whenever I'm in NYC and see if I can find it around that $50 pricepoint or even taste it somewhere before buying
btw the +J vest thing was a cool looking piece but IMO there's a practicality problem... it's actually pretty big and chunky, meaning I think it'd actually be hard to use as a layering item because of the bulk, and if you're going to use it on it's own just over a sweater or something, then it'll work as a good looking fashion type thing but if it's cold enough to wear a sweater and a chunky vest, then it's probably cold enough for a jacket. I dunno, maybe it'd work to...
I spent a couple of days in Koln, went to Farinahaus, in part it's what started this whole interested of mine in fragrance actually! Edit - forgot to mention, it's a relatively small shop, but they do 'tours' ie exit through the giftshop type things but only at certain times on certain days so check beforehand. And I'd recommend reading up on a few of their scents before so you know what/if you want to actually buy anything since I got there and only had an enthusiastic...
there's not much to choose from for a Campbeltown, so Springbank's on my list. Locally we only have the 10 year and I've heard the older ones are really nice. Do y'all think it's worth picking up? meaning does it add anything unique to help round out the collection in terms of styles?
hey 'mericans! question... so I can get some Stagg Jr here for about $85, around say $75 in USD, think it's worth it at that price? I've got quite a few of the basic $30-40 bourbons covered and a few higher priced ones like say Bookers, which I found really nice, hell it's relatively cheap compared to scotch but LCBO here locally is known to jack the price $20-30 and I'm swayed becuase it seems to rare to find but am I just getting gouged here or is it worth it?
yeah, never liked Gold man either Dreamer - thoughts on Dali? I've been debating getting a bottle for years... Re Timbuktu - I've got a little 15ml mini and everyone raves about this stuff but personally I find it sort of soapy or green that throws me off. I like my spices red orange and brown, not blue or green
I had a bunch of XIC (Canadian market) that hit the upper limit and sold the position. Originally I bought it on the way up from that big dip last month and cleared 3-4% on the transaction. Redistributed it as follows: 1A. a chunk of EWC at 30.5 to hold for a little while, something Piobear mentioned a while back and looks good and safe, or at least better returns than just bonds. 1B. Bought some VWO at 41.65, a big chunk away from USA and Canadian markets that seem to be...
hey L'Incandescent, I for one appreciate the humor and little ditties and such, keep it up
went past Astors yesterday and saw Uigedail for $75. Got a bottle last time and even with taxes and exchange rate, it's like $85 CAD and LCBO sells it for $170(?). Was tempted to get another bottle but had already spent too much $$$ so just got some Elijah Craig 12 and New Amsterdam Gin to round out my bourbon and gin collections. (
