    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I also picked up some Ardbeg day. I was trying to resist this one, but there was some dwindling stock right in front of me. I feel like I'm a sucker for (false?) scarcity. The initial reports are good though, so I'll probably thank myself later.

    Power's Gold Label Irish Whiskey, one of the best whiskeys of any kind anywhere and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I was traveling for business last week and took the opportunity to pick up a Lagavulin Distillers Edition and a Lag 16 to replace the bottle that is nearly gone. A friend also found me an Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist which I should have in my hands shortly - looking forward to this one as it has been a while and I remember the last bottle being splendid. I am also pondering pulling the trigger on a Port Ellen 9th, not sure yet though.

    Ain't that the truth. I have friends who turn their noses up to Powers Gold but I love the stuff and all the more for me, I say.

    Gary, how would you compare the current Powers Gold with the Powers 12 Yr (not the John Lane, pure pot still, just the regular ol' 12 year old).

    I really enjoyed the Bowmore 15 - sampled some at a bar & came home with a bottle the very next day.
