I can usually get Caribbean cask around $50 but the lowest I have seen the sherry cask is ~$130

As I experiment with different gin, this is what I picked up at Total Wine today. Seemed like a good deal.

The St George's are similar, but I prefer them, and they're not any more. But the Oregon is plenty good too. Gin, like silver/plato tequila, really shouldn't be that expensive.

Apart from the Teeling Small Batch Irish & the Glenfiddich experiment #4 Fire & Cane I can't think of any more Rum-Finished whiskies. As much as I'd like to indulge in the Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14yo, I can't justify the $140 australian price tag. As long as I can keep picking up the #4 Glenfiddich for $80, I'm happy.

That's not hugely more expensive than here (around $80 US), but it's enough to put it out of my comfort range for buying. I haven't grabbed a bottle of it in a couple of years anyway.

One co-worker bought me a bottle of Skrewball, I hope you falkers were right.

Another picked me up a bottle of Zin-Port at her default winery.


Damn, I'm on call until Jan 6

I've bitten the bullet. I'm thinking we have to spoil ourselves sometimes, it's almost Christmas, and I've worked a bunch of overtime this week. I've bought a bottle of Balvenie Caribbean Cask. I was not disappointed, I love the lingering after-taste. But at this price it is but a treat I shall savour until the bottle is empty.

One of the big liquor stores in Champaign (Binny's) has Jameson's on sale this weekend for $16.99/btl. That's pretty cheap. I'm thinking about fighting the pre-Xmas crowds just to stock up at that price.

$17 is an insane price. For an entry level whiskey, Jameson's is a bit of all right.

If you have never tried this... Grab some immediately! Especially for my Plantation XO 20 fans. Truly delicious. In fact, this was introduction into Premium Sipping RUMS. I would place it in my TOP 5 Best Rums!

That is very low for a really good spirit!

Agreed. Diplomatico is a tasty quaff. I still like Plantation XO 20 and Bumbu better, though.
