    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I found a bottle of Balvenie Tun 1401 batch 3. I passed on it for now, but I am really tempted. It's at normal retail price and if I'm going to spend $250 on a scotch, it seems like this is as good a scotch as any to do it on. Thoughts/encouragement?

    I picked up The Yamazaki 18yr Single Malt Whisky. It is very good!

    The LCBO in Ontario has been selling Cutty Sark 25yr for $100. Compared to other valuations this is one of the best bargains ever up here...

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I like buying $70 bottles of scotch and feeding it to my friends to keep them away from my $30-40 bottles of bourbon. It seems counterproductive, but to me it's totally worth it.

    Balvenie double wood 12 year. My scotch collection heavily favors the Islays, so I had to balance it out.

    So you have $100 to spend, and you get one $30 bottle of bourbon and one $70 bottle of scotch to draw them off? Why not just get three bottles of bourbon?

    I saw this in a local liquor store and considered picking it up. Came back a week later to buy it and it was gone. Now wishing I picked it up when I first saw it! I'd say go for it.

    If anyone knows a local source for this in MD, I'd appreciate a PM and owe you one .
