    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Had to pad an order to get up to the free shipping threshold...yeah, that's the ticket...To accompany my new 4R SmB LE on the trip through the mountains I picked up cask strength bottles of Macallan, Laphroaig 10, and Redbreast 12. Barrel proof über alles!

    Trey, I'm going to open the Bere Barley as soon as I get home, and will be happy to share an opinion after I do. The Port Charlotte series is highly recommended, depending on your stance on paying a premium for young, powerful peat. PC7 is probably the top with 6 or 8 close behind. The Laddie 16 isn't more remarkable than the 10, maybe even less so, but then the 10 is really special in its class. The Still series (Blacker/Redder/Golder) is hard as hell to find, but they're all supposed to be somewhere between "interestingly worthwhile" and "remarkably good".

    Have you had the Octomores? I'm on the fence about picking up a 5.1 before it disappears.

    Scored a bottle of Lagavulin 12 (2012 release) from Spec's - you guys in Houston have it good.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Last week I got 3 bottles of single malt aged in sherry barrels. Longrow 11yr., Signatory Glenturret 12yr, and Benriach 15yr. I love whisky finished/age in sherry barrels and recently started getting bottlings from the different distilleries as they come to market!

    Apparently so. I didn't realize you had it so rough out in your neck of the woods. Specs has a great selection of most stuff (the beer selection could be better, but it's the best in town.) Too bad the staff isn't as informed as some of the people here. Enjoy your score!

    Got 3 cask strength whiskies in the mail today (Macallan, Redbreast 12, and Laphroaig 10) and the 'phroaig which was supposed to be a backup to the batch 004 I have open turned out to be batch 003. Fantastic!

    What a great day when stuff like that arrives in the mail. Enjoy!

    Received my order of Bruichladdich "Laddie 10" today. I know the year is young but I am enjoying this so much that it's going to be hard to find one that is more enjoyable in 2013. What a great effort by Bruichladdich.
