    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I ran across a couple of sales, but I'm not sure whether to pull the trigger. My Scotch collection is small and I've only dabbled so far. I found Glenmorangie "Original" 10yo for $33 (usually goes for $39-41 around here) and Glenlivet 12yo gift set with glasses on closeout for $27 (cheaper than bottle by itself in the same store). I probably should have picked up the glass set but I was on a mission for a particular bourbon. Of course I've had my eyes on two other bottles-The Glenlivet Nadurra and Aberlour A'Bunadh, but those don't go on sale.

    What I have so far: Talisker 10yo, HP 12, Balvenie Doublewood, Ardbeg 10yo and Bowmore 12yo.

    Save up for the more expensive bottles or go ahead and get Glenlivet 12 and/or Glenmorangie 10?

    You've started with a nice little collection there, Deano. Personally, I'd grab the Glenmorangie Original, which everyone should have a bottle of at one time or another, but I'd skip the Glenlivet 12, despite the great price, and save up for the Nadurra and A'bunadh while keeping an eye out for a sale. The Glenlivet 12 is an excellent whiskey but I think you'll find it quite mild in comparison to what you already have on the shelf. You may wish to consider the Glenfiddch 15 Solera Reserve which is another excellent dram in the same price range as the two you are looking at.

    Bought a bottle of Ballantines 12 on sale while vacationing in Florida. I already have the regular, 17yr,18yr, 21yr and 30 yr. All I need now is a bottle of the Finest and I'll have the set complete!

    Picked up a bottle of Scapa 14 on sale today. I don't see this one too often and not usually on sale!

    I really like the Scapa 14, Tom. Don't expect to have your socks knocked off--it's nothing like HP--but very tasty just the same. What did you pay, out of curiosity?

    I've been looking for one of those. What was the damage if you don't mind?
