That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

Our company hit a big milestone recently, so the owners put me in charge of alcohol procurement for our celebration this weekend. Aside from the champagne budget, I was tasked with picking out a nice bottle for the whiskey drinkers in my office, with a $200 max.
I was tempted by the new Lagavulin 1997 DE (cool new packaging!), but ended up with the Balvenie 21 portwood. I thought it would have more mass appeal. Lucky for me, only about a 1/4 of it got drained, and I got to take the rest home. Very nice stuff.
Technically, I didn't buy anything today (or yesterday). I'll keep working on chasing down some older Scotch and maybe by the time Lagavulin is Foreign Whisky of the Month, I'll have something worthwhile to show. I'll keep my eyes open and roam the discount aisles, maybe I'll bump into a marked down Lag 37.

Picked up an Exclusive Malts Mortlach 1995, 17 year old, after getting a sample instore. Left after eyeing the 24 yo Littlemill, the 21 yo Bunnahabhaim and the 11 yo Bowmore, and the 12 yo Aberlour. I wanted to take them all home, who am I kidding. I also picked up a Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch 6 for a friend.
