    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    When my state was getting out of the liquor business, the stores had the Alligator on blowout for ~$40/bottle.

    I sampled the Crockett Legacy last week at Binnys and really enjoyed it. It is way out of my price range, tho so I passed.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    I have a bottle in the closet. I think I paid 129.99 at the time. Good fine for you! I'll put the $40/bottle story in my list of permanent and unresolvable grievances with the world.

    At those prices, I very much regret not having stocked up a few more bottles.

    The Kilchoman Machir Bay just arrived in Atlanta recently so I picked up a bottle to supplement the half bottle I have left. A bit cheaper than TPS plus no shipping so you have to like that!

    Trey, you're the man. Always something awesome coming into your collection.

    I got a bottle of Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2006 in the mail today. Love the story behind it, and it's got a pretty serious recommendation from Serge at whiskyfun, at least as far as <$100 bottles go.

    Yeti, your manliness is unrivaled.

    I've been wanting to dip my toes into Bruichladdich more over the years, but the only thing they carry around here is The Laddie Ten (which I rate highly) and Rocks (pretty good). Any recommendations for my next mail order?

    On a side note, last time I went shopping, the store had case of Chivas 25 year old for $124. Considering this one usually goes for $200+, I might go back and grab one, for science. I got a bottle of the 18 year from a co-worker for my birthday. I kept it at work to enjoy with clients and happy hour, but it's a nice, easy drinking dram. Plenty of flavor, nice malty mouthfeel, and decent finish. Sometimes a blend is just right...
