    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I thought I'd start a thread on what people are buying on this side of the Whisk(e)y aisle.

    Today I picked up another 2 Talisker 3-packs (3x200ml) The 10, 18, and distillers edition (13 yr). This pack was on sale for $50. Ended up cheaper /oz to buy this way than by the 750 ml bottles. I've really enjoyed these Taliskers and since I'm going out of town for a week I figured these little bottles in their special display box would travel well and give me a bit of variety on the road

    Cheers!

    Already have them. But, when starting such a thread, you might make note that in many states, Sunday liquor sales are not allowed. Thus, I couldn't buy anything today, not that I would have after spending my one-time, summer whiskey splurge yesterday on a pair of Four Roses 120th Anniversary.

    I've yet to get my hands on any of the four roses - especially the 120th anniversary. Nice score!

    For Fathers Day, my wife bought me a bottle of Talisker 18.

    My two sons are also coming for a vacation and the oldest is an avid single malt drinker. I need to go to Specs and get some nice bottles.

    So that's it then? My last 9 bottles are all I'll ever get? Darn..... and it didn't sound like anything was coming down the pipeline that could touch it with a stick.

    I loved the Ardbeg back in the day. I'd love to get my hands on some. Let us know how the new stuff is.

    Havent had a chance to open my Laphroaig Cairdeas yet. Does anyone else have one open? Just interested on opinions on it. Apparently its an older version of the Qtr Cask with a portion of 17 year old aged in Makers Mark barrels.
