Sampling at Queen's Quay LCBO
I decided to try some reposado tequila at the tasting counter of the Queen's Quay LCBO today, and for $1 I was given what had to be almost an ounce and a half of tequila. That's quite a bargain for something that you would probably pay at least $10 for at any restaurant. In fact, at those prices, it would be a great idea to return each day for a sample. In less than 26 days I would have consumed an entire bottle of tequila for only $26! Far less than the $70 they're charging for the bottle! Has anybody else noticed the liberal pours that they provide there? Has anybody here tried to take advantage of it...? ;)
I think you're allowed to purchase 2 samples, obviously not of the same thing. Price is dependent on the cost of the item.
The summerhill tasting booth generally has a good selection of expensive scotches to sample. Prices are around $3-$5 per dram, depending on cost of the bottle.
