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

    Found this the other day at my local store. Judging by the bottling date and totally different price tag format it's probably been in the back room at my local store for a number of years.

    Not only my birth year, but same month too! I probably stopped maturing around the same time as this whisky. Couldn't pass it up.

    Right behind it on the shelf was a Lag21 same as LostBottle's from the FWOTM thread, but at 5x the cost of this bottle I had to pass.

    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

    Just got back from a trip to CA where I did just a wee bit of purchasing. I'm headed back there in a few days but I plan to not get anything this time, my budget has long been exhausted!

    Oh you didn't have to buy me a Christmas present MtnDew, but I'm not complaining about the Glendronach =]b

    Glad you made it back safely to our balmy weather

    I've never had Glendronach. I love Glenfarclas, however, and from what I hear it compares well? I have my eye on a 1996 Glendronach 17yo PX. Know anything about this bottling?

    I've had 2 Single PX Cask Strength Glendronach's now (17yr/'94 & 15yr/'95). Both were good but the 15yr was after-dinner aperitif level sweet (I ended up cutting the 15yr 1:1 w/ Clynelish and that is a great blend for my taste). The 17yr is more toned down in the sweetness department compared to the 15yr but they both have this cacao dusting that is delicious.



    If that 17yr '96 is in a brown tube/box/label @ cask strength, I'd get it.



    I've had a few regular expression Glenfarclas now (10, 17, 25yrs) and they all seem muted (sherry-wise) compared to Glendronach.

    Yes, yes it is. I'll have to see about arranging a meetup to grab those

    I just got my delivery of some single grain whiskys. Nikka Coffey Grain and Cambus 21 from K&L. I also got the CS Glendronach 18 PX from K&L. I'm waiting to crack that for a specific occasion.
