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

    Dewar's 12 yo - I like this on its own, but also use it as a base that I enhance with any number of other single malts.

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

    I will probably be castigated or ignored for this, but yesterday I wanted to drink some scotch, not having to meter it slowly out of a $100 bottle. So I bought a bottle of plain old Grant's, and it is damned tasty for the price.

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

    Late last night, before the time shift, I opened the ole wallet for a Glendronach 14. I'm into my 2d year courting the water of life....and it will grow on you. Balancing the wants & needs with my bourbon relationship can be somewhat trying at times....with budget & wife.

    ain't nothing wrong with that. I love a less expensive blend at times myself.

    Stand fast there Tim, folks who drink labels have been turning up their nose at plain old Grants for about a hundred years now.

    Thumbs up Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today - Spring/Summer/Fall 2013

    Thanks, guys. I am retired now, and as much as I would have liked to spend $60-100 on a bottle of great single malt, it's just not the right thing to do ATM. Maybe for Christmas. Besides, I still have what's left of my The Balvenie 15-year old.

    I bought the one without the packaging. I'll have to go look at the batch number when I get home tonight. Is there a difference? which is better?
