    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    My third ever Scotch offering - the Balvenie Caribbean Cask. Never tried it, but it came highly recommended, and was on significant sale.

    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Settled on a bottle of St. George Single Malt (Batch 12) - its unlike any whisky I've ever had.

    We tried the St. George when it came out and our tasting group found it interesting but none of us bought another bottle, it seemed to lack balance to me.

    I received a gift bottle of Caol Isla 12 as a thank-you for some volunteer tech work. Always tasty!

    Picked up a pair of Laddie Tens on sale for $48 each. I'll make room in the bunker.

    Ran across a bottle of Macallan 21 Year Old Fine Oak and a Glenfiddich Malt Master's Edition 4/12 today. Both found their way home with me.

    Score! That's a good haul at good prices! I wish I had bought more bottles of the Balvenie Madeira when I had the chance.

    Talisker 175th Anniversary for $50
    2 x Macallan 18 Vintage 1977.

    Spent too much money on other things and passed on some Highland Park 18 for $70 or $80 (all had different prices and I didn't feel like asking even though it would have been a great deal). Also passed on a Caol Ila 18 that was at a pretty good price as well.

It's much better than the Corry, and is much more approachable than the overpowering Alligator or the thin, kinda weird Galileo. And rumor has it (as in I read it somewhere, but i can't substantiate it), that at least the first batch had pre-Glenmorangie barrels in the mix. As easy drinking an Ardbeg as I've ever had.

    How can you find out which batch of the Beist you have?

    cheers!
