    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I found it to be very fruity and lively with a good dose of smoke from the younger whisky in the mix, but I haven't tasted in many months. I'm going to open one of the bunker bottles tonight and compare notes.

    Found a minor stash of Balvenie Founder's Reserve recently. As always looking for your advice, guidance, and input. Reading pretty good things about it for the most part. What say you?

    I liked it well enough to buy it by the case.

    Well, that's one solid yes. How does it compare to the Doublewood?

    He said Balvenie, not Barton. Just making sure you caught that

    It's quite a nice dram especially for the price,that is when it was available.I like the FR quite a bit it's creamy a touch of sherry and fruit with just a hint of peat,nicely balanced to say the least and a great bargain in the malt world.

    What was the price when it was available? I know of a bottle near me for $50, which seems high. I do like Balvenie though. Picked up two 15 single barrels for $40 recently.

    Very nicely balanced and yes, I also buy Barton by the case.

    The ones I recently picked up from a small liquor store were $29,I believe.I think maybe '06 was the end of production or thereabouts and it was usually somewhere in the 30's at that time.

    Case price was a little over $30.00 but it's been years since I bought any.
