@simulacrum: Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. We're all going to die. Come watch TV.
Eh.. Prices seem kinda jacked, for instance, Green Label is $76, special at most bottle shops is usually $60~
Aww no cider love :(
Cider is for women & skinny effeminate men.
Hey! I resemble that remark - except the skinny part. I look like I 'enjoy myself with food'.
Thank you for helping me avoid sobriety, Scotty.
Any recommendation on whiskey? I'm more of a red wine drinker but would love to try few good whiskeys.
less than $100 (after the discount)
try the habiki or yamakazi..nice japense whiskeys..
not for less than $100 these days
Macallan Select Oak is a nice dram that will come to 100 after discount. Good one for someone that's not super into whisky yet. Akashi White Oak is very interesting, but has some more challenging flavours that I wouldn't recommend for the beginner.
I have to respectfully disagree on the yamazaki - is has the alcohol burn of a younger and low quality whiskey… Much better to be had at that price point.
But then again, I prefer ardbeg lagavulin and Laphroaig so perhaps my pallet differs.
For non-islay whiskey I'd recommend the singleton 12 or tamdhu as an easy to appreciate entry level drop.
I am sad that I could not find any Lagavulin in the sale.
Not this sale - if you can actually call it that.
Lagavulin 16 for $75 is abiut the cheapest price, $85 is OK too. Check recent deals. Often on special at DM or via price matching from Nick's or first choice.
Best scotch deal: Glenmorangie 18yo for $103.
Currently $147 at Dan's https://www.danmurphys.com.au/product/DM_824073/glenmorangie...
Next cheapest price I can see is Nicks for $130 https://www.nicks.com.au/glenmorangie-extremely-rare-18-year...
Good saving! Ordered one, let's see how it goes.
Dang. That's out of stock quickly
Wow. When I was looking it didn't even show as "low stock" and now it's gone altogether!
Still in a 6 pack?
Thanks OP, this will help to continue fuel my rampant alcoholism that's slowly destroying my life :-)
That's sad, are you okay?
Apart from the existential dread I feel great!
How many drinks a day are you up to?
Before or after breakfast?
As long as it's slowly - I think that's perfectly acceptable.
You can't take your liver with you!
Do both vouchers stack?
Didn't stack for me:(
Jim Beam me up… :)
hey anyone tried the Glenmorangie Lasanta Single Malt Whisky 700ml before or the Vincent Van Gogh Vodka Mango ? curious on these anyone tried these before ?
the Lasanta is a fine drop if you're into port or sherry flavours in your scotch.
not much of a whisky man tbh usually just have some blue label (or red label) or some southern comfort usualyl stick to vodka :)
I have tasted the ladanta, but ended up buying a bottle of the quinta ruben as I'm a port lover.
These whiskys are good for something different, but I would only recommend if you had some other standard bottlings in your collection first - I find having something to compare them to brings out their uniqueness.
If you live in Sydney you can also use the voucher to get the Vintec 30 Bottle Wine Cabinet V30SGME for $384 pickup from Shorty’s Liquor, which is pretty good for that fridge
Over $200 for a 12 year Yamazaki single malt whisky…damn….I bought that for $90ish few years ago and haven't finished the bottle yet….Really nice drop but that price for a new one ouch :(
Yes, i know about the shortages when it comes to Japanese aged whisky..I just didn't expect it with only a 12 year old single malt.
I've recently come back from Japan and toured the Yamazaki Distillery and it was really educational and eye opening to see the production process and the amount of care and time taken to ensure that the final product is of high quality. With this in mind, it was quite easy for me to see why they made the decision of stopping age statements and going to a blended product as they did not want to compromise the quality and reputation of the brand to just pump out bottles of what they think is a mediocre aged product which some of the Scottish producers do nowadays sadly….
Also how would they have known 12+ years ago that their whiskies would be so popular and to produce that many barrels let alone their factory being able to produce that much whiskey? The lack of supply and unprecedented demand has resulted in the price we see today which has been set by the market, not by Suntory who does not sell the any age statement bottles anymore.
Anyways, in all honesty though, the NAS blended Yamazaki that you see on sale nowadays in Japan still tastes like and is very much Yamazaki so I wouldn't fret about not being able to buy the 12 yo! Main differences I've found between the two is mainly the difference in oak and complexity of flavour which a lot of people don't really pick up.
Thanks for your informative reply :) Oh and yes the demand for great Japanese whisky was certainly an unknown thing many years ago.
Hmm..not sure on blends..I've had a few over time and I really didn't enjoy them as I found them rougher on my palette. One example, I know people seemed to enjoy was Nikka 'from the barrel' which is mostly why I got it but I really couldn't get into it.
Haven't had that one in a while so can't comment but I can say quite confidently that you shouldn't have that issue with the Yamazaki and Hakashu!
thinking off stocking up on some lower range penfolds as GIFTs to friends. which should I go for? bin 28 still the go to?
Ooh nice tried to get some Derwent Estate late harvest Riesling the other day but was too expensive. Might try again. :)
No Bacardi 151 :(
Edit: very few (if any) good whiskey deals once you take into account DM price match, wish cards, and cash rewards…
Yeah any comments RE value red wine buys for gifts would be great! I took the McLaren Vale 2014 secret label shiraz 6-pack for $53 with James Halliday of 92 points for some casual drinking wine as 92pts for sub$10 delivered is decent.
Thanks OP! Got two interesting/unusual gins from boutiquecellar. Martini time soon.
Went down $10 after the sale finished. Dodge
