    I've been a member of "The Whisky Club" for a while now, been good to get a sample of some great distilleries and drams.

    Skipped my first month this time, as it was a second Lark. (Lark was last month).

    500ml bottle for $150 was too much of a stretch twice around. Ended up grabbing 2x bottles from Dans for $200, Starward Nova and Abundah. The abundah is an absolute monster at 59%, haven't cracked the Nova yet.

    Limited run Lark whisky - there was no way I was skipping either of these.

    Probably my two favourite regularly-available whiskies!

    Damn, just found this thread.

    This is gonna get dangerous lol.

    My last two purchases were a macallan 12 sherry and Chivas 21 royal salute - sadly no longer available and part of a set of 3. Not sure I will open it now.

    Love my whisky.

    If you're a new customer and the code still works you could get it from Boozebud https://www.boozebud.com/p/royalsalute/21yearold Code BESTBUD for 10% off and free shipping. It's probably Boozebud on Amazon. Edit, no it isn't Boozebud on Amazon.

    Thanks, I have the set already.

    I just buy what nollamara Dan's has in stock. I live in the wheatbelt, I dont get internet stuff shipped up here.

    My local has sold out and said it's been discontinued. No biggie, theres better whiskys to go chasing.
    Waiting to win lotto so I can get my hands on a ruby red macallan.

    Until they realised Dans had removed it because of pricing error : p

    Mate of mine grabbed four, to use as crissy pressies.

    Comments from workers at Dan suggested it was.

    But comon, $26 for CC!?? No way. When's the last time you saw that? I can even manage crappy vodka for anything under about $28 at the best of times/discounts.

    lol... 189 to 167 isn't that big of a leap to be honest...

    26 bucks for canadian club? Never seen it for less then 35.. lol

    Edit on a side note... my last bottle of Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix is appreciating in price lol...

    Exactly ;) Had to be a pricing error.

    From memory I paid closer to $200.
    The first one I bought was a couple of years ago.

    I was surprised to see it at $167 to be honest.

    What bullshit.. the GlenDronach offer is BS. I'm in NSW and cannot order it because it gives me an error regarding shipping... wont do standard shipping... wtf

    $94.95 delivered... I had to choose the "just say when" option for $15 delivery

    Yeah same for me, I don't think you can order it anymore, basically I think it's out of stock, it's just not reflecting that on the website. Disclaimer: I didn't try any other stores though.

    It's $79.99 + delivery on Catch but you can also use Yip pay if you're a new customer to get another $20 off. If you pay the Zip pay bill before the end of the month you don't get the monthly charge. https://www.catch.com.au/product/th...&st=37&srtrev=ag-wql0d3ygr9n0evo0qgzbkb.click
