    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch #3 and a new Ardbeg Uigedail.

    Taking a gamble on the Balvenie, as I've never tried it. Supposed to be outstanding if the reviews are to be trusted. Don't know if I'll be able to wait for a "special occasion" to open it. Maybe I'll just make Friday special?

    The Oogie is a favorite, but it took me more than a year to finish the bottle. None of my friends share my love for Islay.

    Trey, very nice purchase! I don't think you took a gamble on the Balvenie, it is supposed to be a simply stunning bottle of whiskey that is worth every penny. I see Hansell rated it as the #3 whisky this season (#1 was the Bowmore 46 at a mere $13.5K - makes the Balvenie seem like a bargain, right?). I need to sort my pennies and pull the trigger on one also.

    Due to a recent thread bump, picked up a bottle of Wiser's Legacy today while out. Not often I wander north of the border, but the going on what folks and said, my curiosity got the best of me.

    Nice - the 'Pinnacle Rye Blend' sounds like it has potential. Please post your notes when you crack that sucker as I am entertaining the possibility of picking some up in Vancouver. If I stumble upon an Alberta Premium 25, I am bringing that back too.

    Nothing today thanks to Texas liquor laws, but did pick up a bottle of Larceny for $20 yesterday after reading comments on the forum and a positive review from one of my car buddies.

    Clynelish 14. First time I've tried it. After opening it, am wondering why I waited so long.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Nice. I think if I saw JW Gold for $50 I would buy a couple. It's good stuff, but I always see it for $99/bottle around here.
