    Yeah, I already tried the "taking one for the team" approach and that was a no-go. Though she did understand the desire to try now to determine if I like it. If I do, I would go get another bottle since it's not like there is a ton of Caperdonich out there anymore.

    Today I picked up a bottle of POH at the local liquor store. $88.

    That's a fortuitous price for scotch if you're Chinese though I'd prefer paying $8.88 instead.

    Just pulled the trigger on an order for Springbank Calvados finish, Sheep Dip Amoroso Oloroso, and a 375 of 17yr barrel proof Clynelish.

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

    A little over a month ago I stumbled on a store that had 5 bottles of Scott's Selection 23 Year Old Port Ellens (Cask Strength) sitting on the shelf at $200 a pop. Since I really don't randomly stumble on PEs these days, I put them all on the Credit Card (wife wasn't happy about that). One is getting shipped out and I opened another, but its nice to have three in the bunker, especially given the current trends with PE.

    My first bottle of Redbreast 12. In fact it's the first bottle that wasn't bourbon or rye that i have purchased in eight months. As cold and wet as it is outside and with all the high marks on here I thought it was time. Besides the Irish in me was calling me to it.

    If you see the Powers John's Lane 12yo it makes a good comparison with the RB12. Same distillery and same mashbill more or less but a little different outcome for each!

    I don't think we have a what did you pass up thread in this forum but I saw an interesting Springbank today. A 9yo cask strength (58%) bottle finished for 2 years in "Marsala".

    At first I thought it said massala. I think of massala as an Indian spice of some sort and I couldn't figure out how that would work!

    Then I realized it was actually Marsala wine casks from Italy. Now that is not one I see every day!

    Anybody ever tried this? I was a little reluctant to take the plunge, especially at $99.99 (the price on the Binny website was $79.99) and couldn't find that much info about it.

    Laphroaig Cask Strength. Found it sitting in the back of the self, somewhat hidden from plain sight. Good find given that this has been discontinued in Michigan.

    Did a little driving around yesterday and found some good prices. Grabbed my first Glendronach 15 Revival (cracked it open last night and wow!). Also got my first Clynelish 14, a(nother) round bottle HP15 and Macallan CS

    And since we might be talking about what we passed up too... I saw a G&M Private Selection Claret wood finished 15yr Caol Ila I almost pulled the trigger on, as well as a Talisker 175th; along with a handful of other really special bottles I just ogled for about about 20minutes before I had to leave.
