Appleton Master Blenders Legacy cdn$88
Goslings Family Reserve Old $98
Barbancourt 15yo Estate Reserve $75
Santa Theresa Antiguo de Solera $74
Hi Shock Therapy,

BC is sadly the province where prices are the highest in Canada. From these choices, I would eliminate all but the Appleton, only for the fact that all other ones are way overpriced. The Santa Teresa is sold under 40$ in the US, and at 54$ in Quebec, the Gosling's is sold at 54$ in Ontario, and the Barbancourt is available at less than 40$ in the States. The MB at 88$ is the same price that you would pay across Canada, and it's not available in the US. If I were you, I would make frequent trips to Seattle.
