    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    VA ABC has the Bushmills 1608 on clearance so I picked up a bottle. Before, the price was somewhat prohibitive but on sale....I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

    My Balvenie Cuban Selection finally came in yesterday. Released only in France last year it took me quite some time to find a contact and get one.

    waiting for Isle of Jura Prophecy to arrive. Had it at WhiskyFest Friday night and it was my favorite of the night.

    Hmmm...the rum finishes tend to scare me away. I've had a couple that I didn't much care for. If you open it sometime soon, let me know your thoughts. I really like the Balvenie line so this one is intriguing.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Really? I've liked almost all the ones I've had starting with the Glenfiddich Havana Reserve, Balvenie Golden Cask, Balvenie Rum Wood 14 and the Macnamara Rum Finish. The one that I thought did disappoint was the Balvenie Rum Cask 17, certainly not as good as the Rum Wood of three years earlier.

    I do have plans to open this one at a get together in July.

    I just bought another bottle of Caol Ila 12 too, along with a bottle of Laphroaig 10. Quarter Cask was sold out... damn it!

    This one was given to me by my neighbor's daughter after cleaning out his house. 1963 or 64 12 yo old and the fill level is still upper shoulder.

    Stuff like that doesn't happen to me. I must not have that "give this guy the just found rare whiskey" face. Congrats on the collection - very impressive.
