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

    This was dropped off today and while it's nothing rare, I have not tried it before and for $50 shipped I had to give it a whirl.

    Thats good to know, I've also been sitting on a bottle I grabbed for $80 and was not sure about it.

    Perhaps it fits best in the Rum forum? Or maybe the Balcones thread which is where I posted pics of my bottles. But it is pretty either way! It was also well received by a number of folks including Dave Perkins at an impromptu rum tasting at a recent GBS event.

    That little gathering, along with several newly acquired rums, has caused me to temporarily sail off into the rum world again and I may end up with several more unusual rums in the near future as a result!

    Sounds awesome! As long as you keep us informed of what you taste or acquire. I've been researching rums lately mostly through links in the Rum Forum. Now I'm looking for some private bottled Demeraras.

    Man, I really should not be reading about this, I love rum but whiskey is already costing too much, if I add something else... Plus then I would have to find more storage space.

    That being said, I love myself some Zaya and always keep that on hand

    Also, do you mind saying what the price range was for the Springbank? I have never purchased a bottle from them (but tried several expressions) and have been interested but I'm not sure how much I should be willing to pay. I'd really like a CS variety though if the price is right I'd get whatever.

    A brief deviation from rum to note that there was a change in the weather as a Dark Storm just arrived from London!

    Looks like it could be a rather tasty storm to me!

    ~$85 out the virtual door a good savings than if I grabbed it locally.

    I grabbed a muirhead silver seal 16yr speyside. It was a good price and it's totally drinkable, tasty in fact
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

    Today I found a 1995 BenRiach 15 Year Peated Pedro Ximinez. I've had the Solstice 2 17 Year, which is similar (Oloroso Sherry), and really liked it. I've heard that this is better… besides, Solstice 2 is a UK-only release.

    Picked up a Kilchoman 3rd edition 100% Islay last night. Spectacular. Thinking of getting another for the bunker.
