    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I meant to mention in my previous post that I found another old bottle of Yamazaki blended scotch whisky at an estate sale a few days ago and it was quite good. It came in a really unique bottle (very...Japanese as you'd expect) and dates from the mid-sixties. Worth every penny of the $15 I paid!

    Great! I haven't had the 39 but I'm sure you'll give us a report.

    I scored a bottle Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph today. I would also post what I passed up buying in the related thread but the list is far too long [sigh].

    I must be doing something right. Went to the office on Friday and there was a another check from a client. That's 2 Fridays in a row I have been paid. So naturally I went out and bought an Ardbeg Corryvreckan.

    Wow, is that yours? Isn't that stuff priceless or something?

    I picked up some Te Bheag, a nice honied, peaty blend with a high proportion of aged malts.

    While I was out of town this week, FedEx was kind enough to deliver my Cadenhead's bottling of Glen Mhor 19 year distilled in August 1976 (finally, a true anniversary distilling as the last turned out to be from March not August of '76). A very nice end to a successful business trip!

    I picked up a bottle of Aberlour A'bunadh today. I love this stuff. I haven't sampled anything form this distillery that I don't like.

    Got a bottle of Inchmurrin 12 for the collection. I now only need one more to complete my goal of having a representative bottle of every SMS distillery that produced since 1956. 127 by my count, 126 down - one to go.
