They are not allowed to put sugar in bourbon. Bourbon has much stricter laws about what goes into it than any other spirit I know of.
I didn't drink johnnie red, black douglas and 100 pipers and proclaim scotch to be an awful beverage, those just happen to be 3 awful blended scotches. I do find many scotch drinkers make this error with bourbon.
The selection and pricing of bourbon here is laughable, the selection and pricing for scotch is much more comparable with most places in the world.
eg Looking at binnys a Large US etailer/retailer. Lagavulin 16 $80USD. DrinksdirectUK - 60 pounds. Liquorland had these on special a few weeks back for $85.
Elmer t Lee bourbon - Binny's $30USD. My local liquor store $90. Couldn't find for sale in the UK and I'm not restarting my research. An alternate line Buffalo trace shows the UK as 20%+ cheaper than our pricing.
Dollar for dollar you are drinking at the same level with scotch. With bourbon you are a couple of shelves down.
Liqorland has a number of decent drops available nationally at 2 for $80: Jack, Johnnie Black, Ketel One vodka (good stuff) and Bombay Sapphire Gin. $43/btl in singles. Offer does not apply to NT where it is 2 for $82, $44 single.
Woolworths/BWS have 700ml Absolut for $38 in Sydney. That's a good buy at that money, just not at the usual $46.
States that you can price match.
Dan's has it as cheap as $38.35 for what I can see, so deduct $10 and you're paying a little over $28 a bottle for something that is usually around $50 (Currently $52 @ BWS) a bottle, drinkable w/o mixing and will not raise the ire of @Monsta_AU .
Best bet, is to send it to your phone, either by email or bluetooth.
Worked for me when I took it into Dan's to pricematch.
