Decent price, upvoted.

There is the whole problem of it being Glenlivet though

Glenlivet isn’t good quality?
Just curious.

Would also like to know too!
I don't hear much in pop culture about people drinking Glenlivet, but Glenfiddich is often discussed...

Glenlivet is a quality scotch.
Enjoy it in good company. Reasonable people will not be complaining.

It's a matter of taste and endless debate. There are so many better scotches.
Glenlivet is a bit pedestrian, mundane and forgettable to me, esp. the crisp, light and fruity 12 yr old. Virtues in a Sauvignon Blanc, less so in a single malt.

Don't bother asking what's wrong with certain brands.

To each his own. Discover your own palette and enjoy your drink.

Hey, are you me? That looks my list though I would add Balvenie and dalmore to it. Cannot get Kavalan here though, used to pick it up from TPE on my trips pre CoVid.
I did pick up the Glenlivet 18 at LCBO on Sat. Not my favorite but good for the price.

so what would you suggest in LCBO at similar price point?
I have yet to try their 18YO but usually go for the light and fruity notes of speysides and been getting into similarities from irish (redbreast 12 being a new fav), and japanese (i know ppl say it's for highballs but i enjoy the suntory toki)

Glenlivet 12 which is the cheapest is not very good. Which is why you here the complaints. The 18 yr is quite decent - I purchased it.
If you do not know anything about single malts, some tasting will be reqd before you understand your own preferences. There are 6 regions in Scotland with different tasting single malts. I prefer highland and speyside. Will try some of the other ones too but do not like too much peaty stuff. You will develop favorites but the fun is also in trying out new stuff.

Cheaper *and* better IMHO

Plus it's 62% ABV give or take...if that matters :)

Try Dalmore 15 yr at $147 at the LCBO, heavier than the Speysides but still spice/fruit notes, very little peat.

Nice collection! I’m pretty sure Hibiki is a blend though. Still a great whisky. Nothing wrong with blends.

For anyone else who likes sherry bombs, check out Tamdhu and Glendronach.

Tamdhu is a bit pricier than Aberlour but Glendronach 12 is like 80.20 at LCBO.
