    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today - Spring/Summer/Fall 2013

    Another long thread that needed to be closed so here is a new fresh What Foreign Whisk(e)y did you purchase thread.

    Myself, probably will regret it at the huge price tag, but just took ownership of a Port Ellen 12th Annual and a Lagavulin 21 year. We'll see if they are worth it, eventually. Also a Balvenie 17 year Peated Cask, not too impressed so far in that.

    Interested in your impressions on those - I've been eyeing a bottle of OB Port Ellen too

    Picked up 11 bottles of 50ml size Compass Box Hedonism grain whisky for $3.00 a bottle - first and only time I've seen Hedonism in a 50ml size. I left behind about 15 50ml bottles of Compass Box Euluthera.

    Added another Barry Crockett Legacy while at TPS. Looking forward to the trying the 21yo Redbreast although the price will likely be substantial I imagine. If it is less than half the Legacy that would be tolerable.
    Also added 2 Laddie Bere Barley and another Glendronach 15 yo Revival since neither is readily available locally.
    Finished up my tour of Islay with Ardbeg. Couldn't decide between the Uigeadail and the Corryvreckan so using the SB philosophy naturally I got both!
    Picked up 2 more Greenore 15yo Irish as that one may not be around much longer either.
    Finally as a pure impulse buy I picked up a Penderyn Sherrywood finish I saw at TPS to compare with the standard Penderyn Madiera cask finish I have at home.

    Other than a bottle of rum on another impulse buy I think that was it from the Sampler trip!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I wondered where that other bottle of Penderyn sherrywood went. I picked up a bottle on the way to the sampler. Those 2 bottles had been sitting there for several months. I discovered it existed in January right after I visited TPS during a trip to Cincy. Glad they both went to good homes!

    I confess I haven't gotten around to opening it yet but was thinking I would bring them both to the GBS extravaganza this weekend. I can't compete with the fantastic old bourbon's and ryes that many others have so I try to bring a little change of pace in case anyone is interested!
