    Really, wow, no sh*t and WTF . I've only come across one ever around here cheaper than $90 in the last 6 years. Currently $119.99 at Binny's.

    There are more round bottles than the new oblong bottles around here, so much so I thought for the longest time that the round ones were the new ones...

    What Wee Dram Are You Enjoying Now - Fall 2013/Winter 2014

    That's funny Michael, I guess we know what people don't like in your area. I found a round bottle 18yr for $85 and a15 for $65 a couple months ago, took me all of zero seconds to scoop them up.
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

    I have a particular spot a bit out of town that seems to get an unending supply of oblong HP18 for $65. That's got to be a pricing error, because everywhere else has it for ~$100.

    Settling down with a sample of Balvenie 1401/9 to do some coding before bed. My first impression of this was in Balvenie's warehouse trying it straight out of the tun this summer, and I thought it was well worthy of the 1401 label. Second impression: still love it! Vibrant without being brash, juicy and sweet without being cloying, wood without being bitter, and accessible without being dull. Bottlings like this (see also FRSmBLE) really highlight the magic that can happen with whiskies in the care of master blenders.

    I'm really starting to enjoy the Batch 9 - when I first opened it, I had it next to the 3 & 6 (opened for some time) so it wasn't really a fair comparison. But it has that liveliness you mentioned that is very compelling.

    Thanks to a generous SB member, I was able to enjoy this Highland Park 18 tonight:

    As good as I hear the old HP18 juice is, I would never buy a HP product that did not come without a DIY Viking ship funeral pyre.

    Maybe I'll opt for sushi served on naked female models instead =]b
