I don't really drink scotch but I am bored so I thought I would make a list of items that look like good deals. If the experts can follow up and critique each scotch and its price that would be great.

Why did the ops delete it when someone else posted it? Good deal, too bad they cant ship to Michigan.

I was the other person to post it. I assume they deleted it bc I accidentally created a duplicate post!

AugustusSmash 12-13-2010 02:45 PM

Appears to be a great deal, to bad it can't be shipped to Michigan... how many did you order?

orangearrows 12-13-2010 02:54 PM

This good whiskey? How about the website?

It's in the original post, try this: http://www.shoppersvineyard.com/s...ageStyle=P

Never had it myself (yet), but the price seems really slick. Especially if you're not far from NJ so shipping doesn't kill it.

orangearrows 12-13-2010 03:04 PM

Here's a review of the scotch: http://www.whisky-pages.com/notes...8-03.shtml

gotme2 12-13-2010 03:52 PM

I'm in for 3. This is a really great deal. I also bought 2 other bottles of wine. all 5 items total shipping was only $25 No tax to CA

Thanks.

IPABeerLover 12-13-2010 04:06 PM

I buy from these guys all the time, have posted a few deals from them but they never seem to do well. They make some awesome deals randomly but always have great service and have never had any shipping problems. I have a bottle of this waiting for a good reason to pop.

Now you have a reason. So you can tell us what it's like first hand!

High-end liquor deals never do well on SD. Wrong crowd I guess. Except this time--just noticed it made front page!

chasemyaccord 12-13-2010 04:26 PM

Wonder how this stacks up to JW Blue...

Tripnox 12-13-2010 04:27 PM

how does this compare with Macallan or Highland Park 18 year old?

rmfrederi 12-13-2010 04:31 PM

I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly... :D

Not all great deals they do are this high of price. I jumped on an absinthe deal today at 75% off, got some vodka (still waiting on due to distributor) for 60% off or so, tequila 75%, and rum 60%. Overall I like um a lot

ax0nist 12-13-2010 04:39 PM

I know you can't ship to NJ, but since the store is in NJ think they can ship inside it?

I emailed them, wondering if anyone knew.

Muntezir 12-13-2010 04:59 PM

Ordered two! Thanks! Thumbs and Rep! Used to Blue and Glenlivet...never tried this...there is always a first time!!

cstu 12-13-2010 05:00 PM

Not a bad bottle, i have had it before. I recommend it. Although i am more of a balvenie 30yr guy.

A couple are going to be for scotch-loving family members in the UK. They are going to amazed because it costs much more there.

FauxReal 12-13-2010 05:19 PM

Hmmmm... So tempted. Never had this Scotch, I like Oban. Or for cheaper Aberlour.

OK so after doing a little math I realized I pay more for less quality scotch at a bar. Thanks OP!

Didn't see any deals besides the absinthe (sold out).

Care to share? :-)

This whisky is a speyside, and from that and the review, this will be lighter than both.

Macallan (and I'm assuming you mean Macallan 18 sherry cask, which is in the same price range) will have much more stone fruits and creamy sweetness.

The review claims this has some peat in it, so it might be more similar to the HP18, though I expect it will be less complex, but also more approachable.

Someone else mentioned the Glenlivet and Blue in this thread. I imagine it's similar to a nicely aged Glenlivet. Blue will be smoother and probably have more of the signature JW smoke.

This seems like a killer deal, but Shoppers Vineyard also has Ardbeg for $62 which is a ridiculous deal, and if you like peat or know someone that does, that would make a heck of a gift, especially since it used to cost $120 and they don't make it anymore.

We usually stick to Balvenie Doublewood...but this looks interesting..

here is some background info on the label..

Probably way better. Walker blue is easily the most disappointing scotch in its price bracket imho. I am a snob though :).

The store is in Clifton, NJ about a mile from my house. They have been around a few years and do a good retail business. Didn't know they had a website. I can get better deals here and then pick it up without paying for shipping charges which are greater than the sales tax.

Yes, they do ship within NJ but charge sales tax.

Thanks for the info. I've tried the Macallan 18 and Highland Park 18 and prefer the HP18. However, I do prefer the Macallan 12 over the HP 12. Just looked up the Ardbeg and it's sold out. I'll keep an eye out for that one.

K&L near where I live has it for slightly more expensive.

pointbob 12-13-2010 10:01 PM

so this stuff ok with dr.pepper?

squeaky 12-14-2010 01:57 AM

Agreed. Johnnie Blue is okay, but absolutely not worth what they charge for it, even on sale. It's what Opus One is to wine drinkers--more buck than bang, overall. As far as the Johnnie blends go, Green Label is a lot more interesting than Blue, IMHO, and a heck of a lot cheaper. My local Costco has it on sale for about 34 bucks (with coupon) a bottle right now.

If you like Ardbeg, look up the Ardbeg Corryvreckan. It's like Uigedail's infinitely more refined cousin... one of my favorite, if not my favorite Islays.

I much prefer the similarly priced single malts, but I do enjoy green occasionally.

I should own stock in K&L as much as I spend there. :) It's probably the cheapest place I've found Riedel stemware (cheaper than BB&B even with their 20% off coupons). But shop around if there's something you want that is listed as a special order on their Web site. They don't offer the same level of discounts. For example, they wanted $319 for the 25 year Bowmore, whereas Bevmo over on Bayshore had a bottle in stock for 269, and I found it via wine-searcher.com at Schneiders of Capitol Hill for $219. Even with their outrageous shipping/handling charges, it's still cheaper than either bevmo or K&L.

Furinax 12-18-2010 11:14 PM

Just went there today (Saturday). It was PACKED! The Parking lot took 5 mins to get into...

The scotches are all on sale, as well as a number of other things. I bought about $268 of scotch before tax. Everything is still on sale except the Tomintoul won't be in stock until Monday.

Oh I also got the last Johnny Walker Green after reading this thread but I'm sure that will be back on the shelf real soon. =)

danbass 12-22-2010 06:35 PM

Just got my bottle and see that this is still available. Must. Resist.

Green Label is a Single Malt too... infact the only single malt under the JW label... and thats why it is so much bettter than all the blends imho... even better that the Blue Label

Eh...not really. Green is a Pure Malt, but it's still a blend. It just doesn't contain any grain whiskeys as a "regular" blended Scotch would.

Not anymore. At my local Costco, it normally sells for $44 but right around the holiday season, they release coupons and offer it for $10 off. At least, they have for the past two years...

It's technically known as a vatted malt. :)

Balvenie is my favorite, I prefer the PortWood, myself, but only because the 30 yr is usually out of my price range.

The Tomintoul is a a great scotch as well, I have a bottle of the 10 year and it's very light, in taste and color. I would imagine the 27 would be a whole lot smoother than the 10 which is why I'm going to grab one.

I usually keep 7-10 bottles in my cabinet, I'm currently down to 6. My usual go to scotch is Talisker mainly because it's usually only $65 a bottle and it's a great medium range in taste, light on the smoke and great tasting. It's my best bang for the buck IMO and what I usually offer first timers that come over for a tasting.
