Must have been in Weed. They have a real dilemma in Northern California...

I will use this info the next time we head across the country. I know not to stock up here (except for a reasonable supply) and then look for advice - hopefully before we reach CO. That's a pretty long haul.

Hi lads, how you doing
Don't know about Johnny Walker, but a half decent bottle of Powers Gold or Jameson Irish whiskey would cost you about 35 euros = 40 - 45 USD give or take, and it definately has alcohol in it.
Good luck
Pete

Hiya, Pete -

I enjoy those fine Irish spirits whenever I feel a need for a special treat. Nice to hear from you.

I have seen some comments online that the best Canadian whiskey is similar to the Irish whiskey but at a friendlier price at least for those of us who live in North America.

The most popular brand is Canadian Club although I prefer Wiser's.

Any other Canadian whiskey fans?

I'm not a JW fan but I do enjoy a bit of spirits on the rocks as most of you have shared.

My favorites:

If we are celebrating or if someone else is buying, Jameson.

If it is just a good weekend, Rebel Yell Bourbon. We can get 1.75 for about $28.

If it is a special bourbon night, 1792 works very nice thank you.

You guys are making me thirsty!

Red Label is going for $27/bottle; Black label for about $40. When I can afford it, I prefer the Gold Label the best.

Hi lads, how ya doing
The Jameson distillery is about 10 miles from me here in Cork, they do tours for visitors, like an attraction center sorta thing, and of course at the end you get a free tasting, if you get on the right tour with the boring brigade, you get to taste everyone else aswell as ya own, great fun, twisted for the price of the tour.
They make something there called Midlton Special Reserve, costs a fortune but if ya ever get the chance, try it, worth every penny.
Good luck
Pete

Greeting from the Socialist Republic of Pennsylvania,

The state runs our liquor store as welll as everything else around here. However for some reason sometimes they have big sales on liquor. Recently I was able to pick up some JW red 1.75 for about 38 bucks. I couldn't afford not to buy a few of them. I used to live in the great state of Colorado (hope to again someday). There were some very good competitive prices on liquor in that state.

I found Glenmorangie at the Norwegian PX, in Macedonia. At the time, the Balkans was declared alcohol-free for US troops. I bought several bottles, put it in my assault pack, locked it with a padlock and walked right through the gate, past the MPs, with my courier orders, bottles clanking against each other all the way. That was the best tasting Scotch!

Hi to all who need medication for the soul!, We just got 3-4 inches of snow and on wrong side of rockies to help Vancouver! So it may be tine for a "wee dram". The C/C you get in USA is bottled in Detroit not in Canada check your Bottle Lable. Wiser's seems to be what most of the western canadian rye drinkers prefer! Having spent august in Scotland this year and doing the wiskey trail it was an amazing experience! We pay double by the time it gets to north america!

Johnny Walker Red

Hard to make a good martini with Johnny Walker Red. The real question is, How much would it cost to upgrade to Bombay Sapphire and where do you get really good jalipino olives.
