Thanks OP! If I drank scotch every day, this would probably be my "daily driver". I'm into single malt and tend to have a few bottles of various faves (including Laphroaig 10 or Quarter Cask - thanks spena), but I also pretty much always have a bottle of Glenlivet on hand for times when I just feel like a scotch and don't really have a craving for any more extreme character. And FWIW, I also bought the Founder's Reserve and the 15-y.o. French Oak versions some time ago, and still have most of both left - they really don't stand out much from the straighforward 12-y.o. IMHO so I won't bother buying them again.

Japanese single malt whiskeys are great, no doubt, but most of them don't have age statement and are blends of different ages. I visited Japan last year and even there it's hard to find whiskeys with age statements and even if you can they are quite expensive. Ageless scotch whiskys are becoming more common as well, both at LCBO and duty free stores, but at least the Glenlivet on sale is 12 yo.
I have a hibiki 17 and Yamazaki 12 at home, not things you at the LCBO but I see the yamazaki in duty free in a few places and at specialty liquor stores in the US (I got mine in SF)

Suntory also has their Toki Whiskey on sale as well in LCBO till 01/28/2018 for $53.95 saving $6 from the regular price.

Suntory Whiskey Toki
IMO- the Toki Whiskey is one of the worst Japanese whiskeys out there. And I'd say that relative to 1) Japanese whiskeys and 2) whiskeys in general

I am surprised on the LCBO choice to markdown the glenlivet. Its unusual for something that's not exactly a new sku that didn't sell well and need to get rid of...

Thanks OP - both the Glenlivet and the Suntory Toki are good deals at these prices.

'Tis indeed. In them old days, my favourite (Lagavulin 16 yo) didn't seem as much as an indulgence as it now does.

I always have a bottle of this and glenfidfich on hand. Definitely nice. But one of my favorite single malts is Talisker.

A friend had brought me back a bottle from duty free when he was in the UK a few years back, and got me hooked :)

Perversely, the LCBO would sell out of JW Blue at $150/btl.

Likely because of the absolute dollars than the discount. And again, just personally, there's so many better whiskeys out there than JW for way less. (Still have a gold from my traveling duty free days unopened)

Gold used to be bottled at 15yrs...that changed about 5yr ago :(. Still not a bad blend, but nothing like it used to be.
