    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I snagged a bottle of Redbreast 12 cask strength while traveling over the weekend. There were a lot of scotches I had an eye for, but not the budget. I really enjoyed the regular 12; can't wait to try the CS. I've heard nothing but good things.

    You will be blown away,the combination of fruit and proof is quite staggering one of my top pours this year.I had several friends try this a couple months back in a blind tasting,and this was a unanimous favorite of 6 selections.

    I picked up a Michael Collins SM to give as gift to a much appreciated uncle for his hospitality while we were on vacation.

    A couple of 2012 Laphroaig Cairdeas Origins and thanks to my favorite devious whisky man, Joe (Lost Pollito), and his "have you ever tried this" line, a 21yr Old Pulteney as well. Damn that's good.

    In all seriousness, is there anyone better to work with on our whisk(e)y habits than Joe? I don't think so.

    I would agree, Joe is great and always takes good care of me.I even trust his suggestions enough to let my wife call with no assistance,I ended up with some nice Fathers Day presents this year thanks to Joe.Kudos and all hail Joe!
