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

    The Talisker vertical Johnny posted in the Talisker FWOTM thread made me real thirsty! And then I spotted a Tally 25yo bottled in 2004 at cask strength (57.8%). Add in a price of $185.99 and it was all she wrote. Spendy to be sure but this one had to come home with me!

    I also picked up a Distillers Edition TD-S: 5NZ distilled in 2000 and bottled in 2011 to go with the DE TD-S: 50A from the previous post and a third DE (TD-S:5HT) I got recently in a Tally gift pack (I think from 1992 and bottled in 2005).

    Time for my own vertical with maybe a horizontal and zig or a zag thrown in there for good measure!

    Nice score @ a great price B! Cask strength too! I need to pick up one of those...

    Looking forward to your vertical.

    Would love to do one tonight but I will likely hold off on this until I can gather a few like minded people. If I can't soon then the seal on the 25yo might spontaneously pop soon and I will be forced to try it!

    A lovely oddity popped up in my local store...Auchroisk 30. Didn't spring for it at $275, but it's one to consider for a "halo" bottle.

    I did bring home a couple Leapfrogs, though. Cairdeas Portwood and Cask Strength. One of these is getting cracked tonight!

    I've yet to see that Portwood - very interested to read your thoughts on that one.

    I picked up a bottle of Aberlour A'bunadh batch 45 just a little bit ago.

    Saw that yesterday when I picked up my Talisker 25 along with a handful of other high end bottles, some of which were well over $200.

    Lots of nice eye candy! The G&M Macallan's were interesting as was the Hermitage Wood finished Caol Ila (although Serge doesn't like it or red wine barrel finishes in general apparently). But I decided to draw the line with the Talisker.

    I went to the local distributor to try to get the Cairdeas Portwood in Atlanta but that wouldn't even bring it into the state, much less give me a chance to buy it.

    Damn Dr. Bruce: step up to the plate and swing for the fences brother. Can't wait to taste a couple of those malts.

    I should clarify my poorly worded sentence! I saw the Auchroisk 30 and a number of other expensive whiskies in a store but I only brought home the Talisker 25!

    Sorry 'bout that!

    But if someone else is in a buying mood I am happy to pass along the location and help you taste them...
