You really have to try the Citadelle and tell me what you think.

They have both the Lairds and Plymouth Sloe. Plus a number of other wonderful things.

I hear you -- I live with limited-supply stores, too. And I can't order from out of state, either. If you can, and you can get a hold of the Leopold Bros. Maraschino, that stuff is awesome.

 

I am, at the moment, really limiting my spiritous expenditures, but when I next need to replace my well gin, I'll do the Citadelle and report back.

Pio, I feel your pain about sourcing. Being in Canada, where supply is controlled by the government and you can't ship anything, it is a trifle difficult to obtain anything mildly obscure. I try to make lists of what I need, and whenever I know someone going to New York, etc., I get them to bring back a bottle or two.

On the bright side of being in Canada, we have ready access to Forty Creek products, and master distiller John Hall's wonderful limited editions. They just re-released their Portwood Reserve Canadian whiskey. Had a taste on Friday and bought a bottle instantly. Wonderful stuff. If anyone is living in Canada and has access to a bottle, don't hesitate. There is a reason John Hall won worldwide distiller of the year last year.

Is that because his company paid a lot of money for the title?

Denning, while an Ontario boy and a huge fran of our whisky...I can't get behind 40 Crap. It just has a chemical/medicinal taste to me. I'd take CC over that any day but my fav. is always Wiser's.

Normal Forty Creek I'm with you. But I really enjoyed this expression.

I might pick that up if I see it then. You know a really nice CC for manhattans is their sherry cask aged. I get it for $20 here.

I've had a number of bottles of the Sherry Cask CC. They used to sell it for $44 though, but it's since been dropped to $33. Damn government monopolies.

Dito. Report back, Max!

Picked up a handle of Camarena silver @ $35, a fifth of snow queen vodka @ $20 (It was a VAP I couldn't turn down the boston shaker), and an 18 of that old American standard PABST BLUE RIBBON

The last "essential" bitter I don't own.
