    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I picked up Old Pulteny 12 and Teachers today. I like Teachers and I hope that it will extend the life of my single malts. My wife really put a hurting on my Cragganmore 12.

    Snagged a Glen Spey Flora & Fauna today. Even though I have one I'm damn jealous of that Ardbeg '77.

    Should you find and/or know the whereabouts of another I would love to have a bottle. Closest I've gotten in my hunts is the 17 yr and it's fantastic!
    ...
    I know of another Ardbeg 1997 but its not for sale. Its on my shelf by the bar. he,he,he.

    I also have the ff Ardbegs:
    Spirit of Scotland 22 yrs
    OMC 30 yrs (so called the Green Monster)
    Lord of the Isles 25 yrs
    OMC 25 years

    and my prize one is Ardbeg Mhor 4.5 liters which I may open when my oldest son gets married next year!

    I have found a real taste for Teachers as well. It is a bit hard to find in SoFla so I jumped when I found this 1.75l bottle for $29 the other day. Is this a blend of single malts?

    Grain and malt, but it is said to contain a higher percentage of malt than your average blended Scotch.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I bought a Benriach Curiositas last weekend and shared it with two friends. This one is very very peaty. I dont remember the exact ppm phenols but its higheer than Ardbeg or Lagavulin. And it taste as such. Its not as sweet as Ardbeg which I like. At only 46 abv, this one is best drunk neat. Its very good. The smell of peat is very strong- some say it smell of iodine or medicine. It you like the strong peaty whiskies from Islay you need to try the Curiositas although Benriach is from Speyside.

    Haven't opened the Milburn yet but it was getting up there in price, over $100 but less than $200.

    I am sure Teachers is a blend of single malts.
