    I'm looking forward to trying the Mac CS soon. The ones I bought is 60.1 abv. All the ones available locally were the same.

    I just picked up some bottles from K&L including a Bowmore, Glenlivet, and Benrinnes. Looking forward to trying them when I get back home.

    The Yamazaki 18 is certainly excellent (I liked it as well or better than the Nikka Taketsuru 21) but $285 is just absurd. It is likely pushing close to $200 here as well and is no longer on my buy list either. I got one bottle a while back (maybe 2 years at most) for under $100 and then picked up a second one for $125 when the price started to get ridiculous but that will apparently be my last one!

    Ahh hell. I randomly ran into and purchased a bottle of Glen Garioch 1991 batch 38. I have peat addiction issues.

    You seem perfectly normal to me.

    [QUOTE=garbanzobean;410405]I know Total Wine also has a Battle Hill bottling of Mortlach @ 14yrs and 43% abv. Unless I hear some pretty amazing things about that one, I'll be giving it a pass. I may take a leap of faith on a similar bottle by G&M (might be a few years older), since Ralfy seems to at least partially recommend G&M's non CS Mortlach offerings. He had a significantly older bottling, though (21 yrs vs 16 or 17 I think)./QUOTE]

    Recently purchased the Battlehill Mortlach 14 at TW&L with the help of a $15 discount coupon upon purchasing at least $75 worth of spirits. It's an excellent non-peated single malt that I've been nursing along these past few nights. For my money however, the G&M bottling of the Linkwood 15 was the best I've encountered this year although it's significantly pricier than the BM 14. I've become convinced that if one desires a quality single malt at a comparative budget price, you cannot go wrong with the Bunnahaibhain 12 (46.3% ABV), $43 at your TW&L.

    I picked up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Green Label before the stores are out.

    I put a couple bottles of that and the age stated gold away a couple years ago on sale when they announced the end of both product lines. I like them pretty well, and figure I'll hold onto them for 10-15 years. The green I'll probably drink both of. I might give the golds as gifts.

    Talisker 10. Have a Longrow peated open at the moment, figured I'd put this one on deck.

    Saw a pile of older Glenmorangie various wood finished bottles, but was disappointed that no Port Wood were among them. So, took a flyer on a Burgandy Wood finished, as a substitute.
