Retro Weekend

It's not easy to get your prices down to a competitive level nationally. There's always someone out there who managed to get a better deal than you from a sales rep that needed to move some units. But, seeing that David OG and I are absolutely exhausted right now and on the point of a complete mental breakdown after processing all these pre-orders, we thought a nostalgic trip to the past might be just what we needed. Remember when Talisker 18 used to be reasonable? It wasn't averaging $145 across the country, but was around $100 or less? We do, too. So we thought we'd lower some prices and remember those heady days....

Talisker 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky $109.99 (was $130) - It's not quite sub-$100, but it's as close as we're going to get. Let's keep pushing and maybe we can get the folks in charge to come to their senses again.

Bulleit 10 year old Bourbon Whiskey $31.99 (was $45) - I'm much more comfortable with Bulleit 10 at this price. I liked it before, but for a little more than $30 I feel much better about putting it in your hands.

Zaya Gran Reserve 12 Year Old Trinidad Rum $22.99 (was $30) - We’re in a very rum-centric place right now. We fell in love with Guyana. We also have to thank the fine people of Trinidad for introducing us to the unforgettable Hot Doubles and Potato Pies that truly made our 8 hour layover in this odd little country bearable. Enjoy this sweet little number from the island.

Cadenhead's 20 Year Old "Creations" Batch #1 Blended Scotch Whisky $79.99 (was $100) - Twenty year old, sherry-aged Bruichladdich, Mortlach, Cameronbridge, and Invergordon. It's quite special. And now it's quite affordable!

Let's start with those for now. Who knows what else we might find to add to the pile? We're definitely in the Spring cleaning mentality right now, so keep your eyes peeled for more hot deals.
