3 weeks ago I was over the moon when I learned that The Whisky Barrel had just received a case, and lo and behold, they actually ship to Canada.

Since then I’ve done what I thought was some sound math in calculating the cost. $88.20US to CDN is $109.05, plus $51.45 for shipping, plus federal and provincial tax on the product of $13.08. A total of $173.58. If memory serves, that was roughly the cost when it was available here back in 2009. Sounds pretty good to me.
