    For anyone living in Ontario on this thread...
    For scotch that you can't find at the LCBO, what sites or distributors to you contact to buy from?

    I'm looking for Distiller's Editions of both Talisker and Lagavulin, as well as Uigeadail

    You know, i noticed a shortage of scotch in my area. My local TotalWine is out of Lag 16, MAC 18, etc. These bottles always seemed to be around, suddenly i end up getting the last MAC 18 and no Lag 16 for me :(

    Is anyone else having a hard time finding their malts of choice? Also, anyone know where i can find a bottle of Glenmorangie Ealanta online?

    ^ Also, what release year is that? Looks like an older one judging by the label

    If you are trying to get anything into Ontario it's really big pain. You have to order in a case at a time and pay for the LCBO to test it. It takes months and isn't worth the price. I just purchase when I travel to the US. If you know anyone in Alberta they generally have a much better selection and price and it's easier to ship from there than over the border.

    Thanks for the word. That sounds like quite a hassle. I'm traveling to Atlanta over Thanksgiving, will look then.
    Cheers

    Picked up a bottle of Lagavulin 12 year CS 2013 edition. But I'm finishing off the last remnants of this bottle of Lagavulin 16 tonight before I crack open the 12 year.

    Just opened my bottle for my birthday. CHEERS!

    EDIT: This was the last bottle in a little known whiskey shop in some random part of Texas. My buddy who likes scotch found it and sent it to me.

    Nice bottle, the only place that still has Ealanta around me is this cigar bar. The shop on wine-searcher that still had some it in stock does not sell outside of their state... :(

    I'm pretty sure that is the new livery for the current bottling of the Laga DE. I much prefer it to the older labeling.

    Accepted an offer for a new job last Friday, and opened a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue to celebrate. I'm ordinarily a smoky, peaty single malt drinker myself, and the bottle was a gift from my mentor, but damn, it was smooth as silk.

    Stopped in La Maison du Whisky and picked up a house specialty, along with a little bit of fun. The Laphroaig was a bit of a tough choice, as they had another Signatory special that is supposedly close to the 15, and a really interesting Artist Series -- another Maison exclusive -- that is supposedly like what I got, only nicer.

    Just drove through the Cad/USA border and picked up a 1 liter bottle of Cragganmore 12 for $57 CAD.
    (LCBO sells the 750ml for $85 so seemed like a good deal)

    Thanks @cchen and nice snag @Master-Classter.

    I'm looking forward to duty-free at CDG tomorrow morning. Last time through I picked up 1L bottles of Lagavulin's DE and Bunnahabhain's 18. They were also offering up samples of most everything they had on the shelves. Hopefully they've got some interesting stuff tomorrow.
