    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?-Spring 2014

    Received this hoss today:



    Bottle 10 of 362, Cask 3624 (Distilled 5/1983, bottled 8/2012). The reviews I have been able to find seem to lean toward it being 100% bourbon matured. Given the fairly dark color, I would have guessed it spent time in sherry, but I'm totally down with 100% bourbon. Given that they got 362 bottles out of the "single cask" at 29 years, I think we can assume there was a fair amount of re-racking done at some point. Regardless, it looks delicious. Too bad I'm saving this one for a rainy day . . . Might be a few years before I get a chance to open it.

    Edit: In case anyone was wondering, the color of the bottle isn't being affected by the furniture it's sitting on.

    Picked up a Macallan CS a couple of nights ago, and a Signatory 1996 Mortlach 12 year last week. Really digging the Mortlach.

    Alchemist Springbank 10 (distilled December 1995, bottled April 2006--Not sure what it's been doing for the past 8 years). This one is a batch that combined first fill port and bourbon casks. Which is to say that I don't think this one is going to stay closed for very long.

    Mit Farbstoff?

    Or maybe just a really active cask...

    I don't think so, it's NCF/NC. I'm really not sure what the deal is, but I'm choosing to believe it's a good sign. I guess we'll find out when I get around to opening 'er up.

    Purchased a bottle of Lagavulin 16 for $44.95 as a going away present for a coworker whose last day was today. Also, couldn't resist buying an old bottling of Black Bottle to use in my Mamie Taylors. I'm predicting great success.

    My 3 springers arrived at my hotel today, now I have 8 bottles spread out over two bags to take back home. Can't wait to do some tasting!

    Up in Calgary and decided to try some Canadian labels I hadn't seen before. So I picked up a Tangle Ridge and a CC Sherry Cask. The tasting will have to wait till I get back home to Atlanta.

    Have you tried these yet? Tangle Ridge is definitely one of my favorite Candians.
