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

    After waiting in line for hours on black Friday, only to be trampled during the sprint for the store entrance and then beaten with fists while grabbing like a crazed animal for the last cheap TV, I decided to console myself with some booze. Unfortunately, the exact same thing happened at the liquor store where I was mauled by a pack of rabid Pappy hunters. I finally decided to just settle for a Lagavulin - I hope this stuff is quaffable.

    Picked up a Glenlivet 12yr gift set that included a 50ml bottle each of the 15yr and the 18yr. I like the regular 12yr well enough, hoping the other two are good as well.

    Good luck choking that down. Might want a coke chaser readily available, you know, just in case...

    Just in case the Lagavulin 21 sucks, I bought a Douglas Laing Old and Rare Platinum Mortlach 18 (first fill sherry, 58.1%, unchill filtered, 242 bottles) to mix it with.

    Don't forgot the diet coke, I find the aspartame flavor helps hid the poor scotch essence.

    And make sure it's Coke, not one of the store brands. Best to stick with the classics.

    Managed to get my Thanksgiving presents to myself home intact and can post a few pictures! Weren't many whiskey drinkers at Thanksgiving dinner so didn't get to the Sullivan's Cove yet. No rush as I have had it before.

    That trio of Greenore sure looks purdy! But I need to finish off that last little bit of the 15yo so need to do a vertical soon. Fortunately I have more 15yo available.

    Went back and got that Talisker 175th today. Saw a Bruichladdich Full Strength 16yr @$99 that I passed on for now. Anyone have experience with it?

    Would like to read some tasting notes on the 8 year old Greenore.
