Cheap(er) Scotch In New Brunswick

liquidation saleThe New Brunswick Liquor Corporation has an annual liquidation sale where they want to make room for new inventory. I usually don’t pay attention to this because I don’t drink alcohol often, and what I do drink (i.e. scotch) usually isn’t on sale.

However, this sale includes some scotch I may have to stock up on:

  • Laphroaig 10. Regular $40.20, on sale for $30.15. This is an EXCELLENT deal for a superb scotch. I may have to buy a few bottles.
  • Balvenie 30. Regular $332.15, on sale for $249.11. I won’t be getting this – out of my price range, but I’d LOVE to try it – never had a scotch that old.
  • Caol Ila Cask Strength 1994. Regular $80.97, on sale for $60.73. I may get this.

The whisky begins on page 32 of their price list (PDF).

  1. I treated myself and bought a bottle of cask strength Lagavulin this weekend. I’ve had cask strength Laphroaig before, and it was the best scotch I’ve ever tasted. Adding the water to it, and it explodes with aroma and flavour. Stunning. And very expensive. I thought the Lagavulin would be comparable seeing how it’s considered by many to be the world’s best scotch (though I’d be completely happy with Laphroaig for the rest of my life). Anyway, I gave the cask strength Lagavulin a go, and it was disappointing. No explosion of aroma, and the flavour was pale, nothing strong or distinctive about it at all. Very disappointing. I’ll have to get some better water and try again, but this is the first bottle of Lagavulin I’ve ever tasted that disappointed me.

  2. I haven’t had Talisker for a long time. I’d like to try it again. There are four variations of it in New Brunswick, including a 25 year old for $266.
