    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Trying to finish out my basic Islay collection. Added The Laddie Ten, Lagavulin 16yo and Caol Ila 12yo yesterday. Still trying to decide between (and find) Ardbeg Uigeadail and Corryvreckan to finish it out. Uigeadail is around but costs $100+ which seems high and I haven't seen the Corry on the shelves lately. Seems a bit much when TPS has both at around $90.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I've been through a few bottles of both and I definitely prefer the Corry. They're both excellent. Many people feel the Oogie has more batch variation.

    Given I tend to like a slightly sweeter sherry finished style would I be better served with the Oogie and risk the batch variation? At least it appears the Oogie tends to have more sherry finish to it from what I read. Haven't personally tried either.

    Given your preference, go for the Uigeadail. If you can find last year's Ardbeg Day, that'd be close to splitting the difference between the Oogie & the Corry IMO.

    $100+ for oogie is expensive for sure. locally (chicago) it's in the $70+ tax range.

    Yeah, Uigeadail is $59 out here. Most places aren't that cheap, but it's nowhere close to $100 anywhere.

    I finally got tired of waiting for it to be available here in MO, so ordered a couple fifths of Powers John's Lane off the net.
    Should be here by next weekend.

    "anywhere" doesn't include Canada - especially Ontario where it regularly sells out at $167

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Found a bunch of Balvenie 10 Founder's Reserve over the weekend. Bright neon tag sitting under at least half a dozen bottles. They've probably been sitting there for years. Grabbed one for $30 to test it out. Cork was a little iffy, but came out relatively clean. I've only had the 12 yr doublewood, which I enjoyed, but this one is nice. Might have to go back and make him an offer on the rest of them.
