    looking on line, it would seem the main suspects of supplying the Whiskey for this rebadge are Dalmore, Glendronach and Glen Moray.

    I managed to get Ardbeg 10 for $72 from Dan Murphy's, still prefer the Glenmorangie I think.

    Oooh that is a good price, very tempting to pick up a couple...
    I was a bit tempted by the JW green at $59 the other day, but I'm not sure whether I will like it.

    another one in the mix would be
    Laphroaig 10 Year Old Single Malt 700ml $74.95 C&C @ Dan Murphy's


    JW green label is not bad.. imho the best out of JW + Chivas or anything of these equivalent with the exception of their bluelable/royale salute which is of course at totally different price point.

    not bad.. happy with that

    Green Label is my favourite johnny period, superior to the blue IMHO - helps that its only a blend of 4 different malts.

    I like green label as well. Its easy to drink and everyone that I give it to enjoys it. I hate pouring a whiskey out that people cannot drink or don't enjoy as i'll be sitting there thinking, I could be joying that on their behalf ahahaha

    Pretty sure that was mostly due to the fact they couldn't get one of the whiskies needed (Linkwood???) to continue making their blend on the scale that they were (was still available in Thailand the entire time).

    Haven't not bought whisky for a while from Dan Murphies I'm really shocked how much prices have risen for single malts. Stuff that was low $70's is now $100.

    Yeah that's happened worldwide due to a 'shortage'. Basically they're waiting to crack the new barrels.

    Yes, I grabbed a Teelings this evening and was depressed at the $$ as I browsed the shelves.
    I blamed the gubmint (which I think is fair).

    Always! I went in and came out empty handed (not because of price, but because I couldn't make up my fucking mind).

    I wanted the Caskmate stout edition but it was out of stock :(

    Haha!
    I love being paralysed by indecision - it's improved my self discipline no end :rolleyes:
    It's available here in Albury, I know that doesn't help. So you've heard good reports?
