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

    Because of this scotch sale going on for me locally I'm basically the internet mule with a bottle of 20+ year single malt in my internet b-hole. And I don't mind at all. The tax crap that you guys have going on in WA has me happy to do it all that much more. I'm am intrigued by the Rosebank though. The first scotch that got me into trying things was another lowland...Auchentoshan 10.

    We all appreciate what your doing for us I only wish I had more money to throw at you, it would be nice to get many more bottles.

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

    Picked up a Glenmorangie Discovery pack yesterday (750 of the original 10 yr + three 50 mls of Lasanta Sherry Cask, Quinta Ruban Port Cask, and Nectar d'Or Sauternes Cask (all 12 yrs old). I'm more of an Islay guy when I turn to Scotch, but loved the idea of getting 4 things to sample for $30!

    Somebody's been busy... Nice haul there PW!

    I'm keen to read your thoughts on the Tomatin as I've had no exposure to that distillery.

    Finally picked up a Nadurra. Wow, best single malt I've had in my somewhat limited experience with scotch.

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

    Picked up a Talisker 1999 DE that I've been eyeing for oh, about 3 years. Not everybody likes the DEs as much as the regular 10, and I'll admit that the sherry finish isn't perfectly integrated, but the underlying distillate is pretty damn good. I had some Talikser 10s that would have been distilled around 1999/2000 that were spectacular and this guy shows that heritage.

    Debating on getting a Glendronach 15 or a Chieftain's Mortlach 15. The Mortlach is only a few bucks more but it is also CS.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    After trying the Glendronach 15, I won't argue against that.

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

    A lot of recent positive talk of the Glenlivet Nadurra inspired me to pick up a bottle whilst out and about today.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
