    Great day in the booze world for me!

    Local liquor store was having quite the sale; several whiskey's and scotch's on sale. Got a regular and 2 rye Bulleit for 1/3 off, 2 Jameson at nearly half price, a couple Chivas for right at half off, and finally 2 Glenfiddich 15 for about 40% off. I normally don't drink Chivas but at half off I think I'll manage.

    The very first drink of booze that I can remember was Chivas 25yr old when I was about 10yrs old. I've been a Scotch drinker ever since. (My first beer was a sip from Mom's "Little Oly" when I was about 7.)

      My first sip of alcohol was Dad's Schlitz sitting on the end table while he was napping after working outside in the yard. I was about 8-10. Gosh, it tasted terrible. I almost spit it out. Then, I heard Dad chuckling.... Folks always liked Canadian whiskey, so I got a taste or two. But, it was Chivas that I liked as a late teen and college student.

        First beer was a drink of Budweiser at around 8 and I hated it, didn't drink it regularly until the Marines. First liquor was at 13 at a friends house while his parents were away, a shot of 151 that did not stay down long at all. 151 in the sinuses will put one off of sampling booze for quite some time.

            I don't drink much (honest!) but when I do, I prefer Bushmills Irish Whiskey (black label if I can find it). Jameson is fine as well, just not quite as smooth.
            Just don't tell my Irish Catholic family that I prefer the "Protestant" whiskey!

              Nice score! I've never seen such a liquor sale, didn't think it ever happened.

                John, I know someone was going to have to attend the sale and buy something. I appreciate you doing it and I applaud you on your selections. I know it was a nasty Job but, someone had to do it!!

                  It was tough, but a couple of Old Fashioned with that Bulleit Rye last night really helped me feel better about it!

                      Sometimes the LCBO will mark liquor down $1.00 maybe $2.50 and tell us the savings are a really big deal.
                      Our local store usually has as shelf of de-listed items were you can get some really good savings.
                      But 30-40% off will never happen here, quite simply 55-60% is HST and the gov't isn't giving up that money no way no how.

                          Yeah I've never seen a significant sale on liquor. Maybe with the exception of vodka...
