This is just damn delightful. Local Costco has these for a good deal cheaper than most retail I’d seen (cheaper is not to be confused with cheap lol), enough to make my dumbass feel slightly less dumb for going to Costco on Super Bowl Sunday.

Finally got around to opening this, picked it up in Poznan in 2023, after paying, upon leaving the door alarmed. They looked at my packaging and couldn’t figure out why. Getting it out the box, I now see why. Internets gonna have to teach me how to remove it now.

Curious how you resolved this.
I guess I could simply google but prefer my browsing history not to resemble that of a petty criminal (anymore than it might currently).

After examining it, the gauge of the wire securing it was pretty small, so before googling I decided to just use my wire cutters. Worked like a charm.

If you like 14 you will loooove 18. My BiL had it and I got some. Superb
Fun aside, wound up at this random podunk (well, it was on Ocean in Santa Monica lol) bar after an all-day work outing. They had mostly meh selections at the bar...except for Oban 18. Knowing the price at retail, I figured I'd at least bother to ask...like $14 a pour! That's like Laph10 prices around my way.
Safe to say I got properly liquored up.

A classic, no doubt. Though, with the Diageo price creep, Laph’s CS is a no brainer over this, at least for me.
