Ardbeg Uigeadail in Chicago


I'll be in the windy city next week, and look forward to visiting the esteemed Sam's. One thing I want to pick up is Uigeadail. What's a good price for it, assuming Sam's has it? Also, any idea of who might carry Laphroaig CS?
Thanks, John

Never having been to Binny's (or Sam's), is there a particular outlet that has more than others, like Lee's in Las Vegas? Or are they all stocked pretty well? I'll be downtown, with no car. Have desire for whisky, will travel.

Sam's is just off of the Butterfield exit from hwy 355. The single malt aisle is excellent, and their beer assortment is varied and interesting. Had a Lee's harvest ale aged in Lagavulin casks. Much like the bourbon aged stouts that crop up from time to time but a bit peaty and a bit smoky. Going back at lunch to buy several more. Decided that rather than buy a bottle of single malt, I'd buy a bunch of different beers I haven't seen. This is only a few hours from home so I can always come back next time I'm coming through Chicago.

Just visited Sam's on Marcy St. last weekend. Two Talisker's (Distiller's edition + 175th Anniversary version), two Signatory 1979 Port Ellen's, and a pair of CompassBox Peat Monster's (vatted malt, but I thought I'd give those a try) came home with me. You can probably figure out I like Islay from the above! The Peat Monster is surprisingly good, considering I think it was priced in the $30+ range. Not real complex, but definitely peaty & smoky. You can check out Sam's stock on their website and also make a purchase that they'll hold for you for pickup, if you like. Sign up for their club, or whatever it is, before you go (look on the website for details). You just have to fax your name & address to them and they'll send you a card within a few weeks that'll let you get 15% off on your first purchase after you get the card. There's no charge for the club thing, so this one's a no-brainer! TT >> Never having been to Binny's (or Sam's), is there a particular outlet >> that has more than others, like Lee's in Las Vegas?

Hi John,
I think Sam's has a larger selection than Binny's but both are great (and much larger selections than Lee's).
Do you like Las Vegas. It's were I've lived for 35 years.
Your friend, John

Hey, John,
Do I like LV? I love it! We just spent 6 years in Park City (UT) prior to moving back to Ohio for my doctoral work :-( I was just in Tucson last week, where the skies were blue and the air was dry. I almost got lost in the backcountry on a solo mountain bike excursion. Oh, how I miss the West.
Take Care, and enjoy the weather (until it's scorching!), John
