    I picked another bottle of Oban 14 to replace a recently demised bottle.

    I dropped by my local store to get a bottle of Dickel 12 and I happened to see a bottle I haven't seen in quite a while... Carduh 12. Obviously, I had to buy it.

    Laphroaig QC. The bar seemed so empty the last week or so without it.

    How is that stuff? It goes for $200 in Ontario for some reason I've never been able to figure out.

    Wow... $200.00? I got it for $42.00! I haven't tried it yet. It's been 10 years since I've had any of it.

    I remember it being on the sweet side and kind of a "broad spectrum" type of whisky. I'll open it up tonight and let you know what I think.

    It was $249 for a while but they dropped the price. I guess no one was biting...

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Ok... Cardhu 12: It has a floral, honey, vanilla nose. The taste is sweet, as I remember it. Kind of a vanilla, caramel, butter sweet all rolled into one. There is also the slightest bit of smoke. The finish is medium to short, with a caramel cream candy kind of note.... maybe a little dry. The mouth is full and on the medium, thick side. The legs are wide and slow to drop. I find no need for water, it is a very "soothing" and easy to drink scotch.

    I kept thinking this has almost the same nose as Johnny Walker Black. I did some research and found out that it is the predominante malt in JWB.

    For $42.00 I will definitely get a bottle or two more.
