    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I went to what is supposedly THE shop for single malts in my area and made the following request:

    "Not peated, not sherried, not medicinal, but strong and distinctive. Maybe cask strength."

    I got a Scott's Selection 1988 Bunnahabhain. 16 y.o. cask strength. Very excited to crack it open as soon as I make shelf space.

    Picked myself up a Glenlivet Nadurra 16yr old cask strength non-chill filtered. Can't wait to crack it open and taste my first cask strength scotch!

    To me, it competes well with whiskys double and triple its price point.

    Hardly qualifies given the "not sherried" specification

    I couldn't possibly leave The Balvenie 12yr Double Wood on the shelf for $37.99.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I picked up the Bunnahabhain 12

    Here is Ralfy's review of one version:

    http://whiskyreviews.blogspot.com/search?q=Bunnahabhain

    Interesting, it is the main component of Black Bottle.
    I have not tried it yet, but I like the fact that it is the lightest
    peated of the Islay...it will still be signifcant, but hopefully not has
    overwhelming as Lagavulin, Laphroaig etc.
