    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today - Spring 2013 ...

    A literally dusty Tun 1401 Batch #3 was discovered this afternoon, along with an old bottling of Highland Park 30. Both were priced too well to pass, but I still managed to use up my monthly whiskey allowance in one stop.

    Drooooooool. I'd probably pay a nice sum for a batch 3 if I found one. Very nice pickup all around.

    When you say old bottling, does that mean the bottle itself looks different than today's HP30?

    Nice score BTW... The TUN #3 is one of my all time favorites (context: in my short two-year whisky drinking career).

    Yes, the current bottling has a "flat" bottle in a wooden case. This is the round bottle in a red cardboard case, and is priced lower:

    Sounds interesting, especially the Aberlour. Big fan of that one.

    Never had the Glendronach... never ever heard that name before.

    Would be interesting to try the old label Glendronach against the new 15yo Revival, as I believe that was the one they were trying to recreate.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
