Very good stuff. Opposite end to the Ardbeg spectrum. Notes of pear and citrus. Clean and fresh, like what I imagine a Japanese forest to be like. Slightly sweet too. If ever there was a breakfast whisky, this would be it.

Cool. What else in on the list?

The Hakushu 12yo is hard to find. I've been looking for it for a while and couldn't find it (could only find the Hakushu without the age specified, which apparently isn't nearly as good).

But I occasionally do some work for my brother's company, and he pays me in whisky. He walked into First Choice, grabbed something decent and gave it to me. He knows nothing about whisky, so it was such a fluke that he picked up this bottle. Awesome!

So evidently the First Choice website doesn't necessarily reflect what is available on their shelves.

I think it was $150 at FC, so I doubt they will get $200-$300 like they estimate.
