Jeez, yeah not much value at that pricing. I'm usually able to find for $50-60 between duty free and some online retailers here
Where are y'all finding affordable CI? I really like it, but miserable value in my neighborhood (~90+) at just about every store.

My local Utopia of Booze, Hi Time Wine, has 7 Taliskers in stock.
From Storm @ $59, all the way to the 25yr @ $699.

Have you had any shipping issues with ML, out of curiosity? Their prices are super compelling...but the locations are a massive PITA. Really impressive selection too.
I havent had any issues- and they do free shipping over $300. If you don't have a single order that high, you can probably have them hold an order for a while and then bundle multiple orders.

Thoughts? I gave it a glance on my monthly run last weekend (@venividivicibj I got a Signatory on faith lol), but exerted enough discipline to hold off
I’ve really enjoyed this bottle….. malty, biscuity, cereal with honey and ripe fruit….. no idea how other years compare, but the 2010 is delightful.

Edited to add, you can tell by how Much (little) is left, how much I’ve liked it….now I’m going to savor what’s left.

@venividivicibj Gave this a first crack the other night. Unsure where this ranks in the hierarchy/legitimacy of Signatory (this was by no means cheap, but a good deal cheaper than others I’ve seen), but it is plenty good. Worth exploring some of the other bottling I saw.
As an aside, I actually thought this was a Caol Ila bottling (damn tins are rather similar lol), noticed by final tally was a bit cheaper than I’d marked off in my head, assumed the cashier made a boo-boo…and then checked the bottle at home lol.

But, fun fact: this was bottled a day after my 21st birthday (well, the anniversary of lol), so fun enough to offset the user error.

Glad You liked it! Ardmore is interesting, and a different kind/feel of peat.
