JWB is regarded as a top shelf brand internationally (outside of europe of course.) that poo is far more expensive in south america and asia than it should be, even with import costs driving up the cost overall. it's marketed heavily so drinking it is considered a class symbol in a lot of ways, so i guess they can get away with it.

what's a fifth in the US? like 50-60 bucks? it's 120 for a bottle in a supermarket in quito

Are you talking about black? 750ml was 35 bucks at my store.

yes. JW Black is massively inflated in price in many places overseas, in ways that others are not. a bottle of absolut is probably 40 here (29 in NC.) Jack Daniels is 50 here (39ish in NC) but JWB... over a hundred bucks. it was just as bad in laos/cambodia.

that's hilarious. but we fall for it with blue label which is probably out of the same damn barrels. they probably have a big vat all of the same thing and bottle it as red, black, and blue.

i'm convinced it is. JW execs laughing all the way to the bank.

loads of locally-produced stuff for incredibly cheap here though, as one might expect. i'm bringing home a couple of bottles of ecuadorian spirits and liqueurs and probably a bottle of pisco as well, since i can't find it anywhere in NC.

Blue is a joke.
Best whiskey i've had the pleasure of drinking, is the Bunnhabhain 25yr.
It literally blew my mind as to good whiskey can be.
I'd take it over the 25 Mac.
Plus it's half the price of the Mac.

Here is the basic cabinet. It's got your basic rums, vodkas, tequilas and mixers, etc.

Then the better cabinet has your good cognacs, scotches, etc.

And a couple of bottles that wouldn't fit on the shelf...

And the last cabinet has a ton of various wines, some cheap Hennessy, a couple of 1.75 Crowns, and various weird liquors that have been given to me over the years or left here after a party. I didn't take a picture of that shelf because it also has a box of Almond Joy individual coffee creamers and some light bulbs, so it doesn't look as nice. I also have some patron and some grey goose, etc. in my standing freezer in the garage.

Oddly enough, the wife and I don't drink all that much.

$300 for JW Blue is a joke. The Costco by my house sells it for $160. And it's decent sipping scotch but not worth the hype it gets. I've had macallan 25 and thought it was great, but the 18 is the most expensive that I can enjoy on a somewhat regular basis.

Spaeburn scotch

All I can think of at the moment
