Looks like it's being cleared out, so stock will vary by location, hence YMMV.
Was: $189.95 - Now: $89.95
I remember the last LCBO/Scotch thread, the Glenfiddich 1963 Original Single Malt one, had a lot of debate, I'm sure many will instantly point out this is a Blended Scotch Whiskey, not a Blended Malt or a Single Malt... but to each their own.

And here's a review, stolen from Reddit:
(Source)Storas 21 Year (46%) Thanks to the William Grant & Sons brand ambassador for the sample. This blend is made exclusively for the LCBO, so is an Ontario only release. No information on what went into the blend. Part of the William Grant & Sons Rare Cask Reserves.
Nose: Sherry and vanilla on the nose, hints of oak and smoke.
Taste: sweet oaky vanilla, buttery caramelized fruits with a touch of smoke and spices.
Finish: Medium intensity, with vanilla, fruit breads, slight oak lingering for a good length. Buttery.
The sherry on the nose is muted compared to the vanilla and oak for the palate and finish. Interesting to see a LCBO exclusive blend with such a high age statement. Reminds me of Glenlivet 21. Would have loved to see this at cask strength. The finish is surprisingly enjoyable.
