    I tasted this about a week before it was officially released. I thought it was fantastic. Very well balanced, front to back, with orange on the finish. Have you opened it yet?

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    A 13 year Aberfeldy, distilled in 1994 and bottled in 2007. A Binny's cask pick through the Signatory Vintage Un-Chillfiltered Collection at a sale price of $39.99. A delightful lemon bomb with a transition from sweet to dry and fading into black pepper, sour orange and light smoke. 46% abv and natural color...a bourbon lovers single malt.

    Opened mine as well. First bottle of Caol Ila for me. Really liked the way the flavor developed with a lot coming toward the end.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I stopped by Binny's to get some wine for the wife and a hygrometer for my new toy, and I told myself I wasn't going to buy any bourbon. I tried walking past the aisle without stopping, but I saw a bunch of sale tags on the Scotch side, so I couldn't resist. Grabbed the 12/17 Old Pulteney set, even though my flirtation with Scotch was waning. Popped both years open that night and fell in love with both. I'm so easy.

    Very interested to hear your thoughts -
    I may have to drive up to BC this weekend to snag a bottle.

    I picked up a Laphroaig 10yr CS bottled 2012 at 58.6% abv. I loved my Ardbeg 10yr and Lag16, but they are both gone and I needed something to replace them.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    While bourbon is my go to whiskey, I've been getting more and more into foreign offerings. This week I picked up a Canadian Club Classic 12 year and a Balvenie Doublewood 17 year. I've had a spot of both but need to spend some quality time with each.

    I saw a stash of these for a great price and was about to buy one, but then I remembered I had not even tried the one at home. Never one to fear adding to my swelling collection of open bottles, I opened her up!

    Yeti, I am usually right there with you in matters of taste, but I do not connect with my bottle of Cairdeas 2012 at all. First of all, there is no nose! I can barely detect the slightest whiff of peat, but it's practically non-existent compared to any other Laphroaig. Taste was almost unpleasant. I poured a bit of Laph 18 and Caol Ila 12 to see if maybe my palate was off, but this bottle is just nasty to me.
