    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Well I did take care of his lawn for the last 5 or 6 years of his life before he passed on but it was still very unexpected and appreciated.

    Not today but last weekend in Houston I grabbed a couple bottles of Laphroaig 10 year old pre Prince of Wales days. One has been placed in the bunker and the other was traded to a good friend!

    Can you tell me how you dated it so closely to those years? I've come across some '50s, '60s or '70s bottles and can't always be accurate, even to which decade. American bottles are much more obvious. With Scotch I've mainly depended on the foil closure/seals to give me a rough estimate.

    Nice find, BTW. Have you opened it yet?

    Managed to score an SLO of the Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX (Pedro-Ximenez).

    This is rumored to be the King of all Sherry-FINISHED (not exclusively Sherry matured) whiskies!

    I have no tasting notes as of yet, since I'm waiting for a special occasion to crack it open!

    picked up my first Irish - Bushmills 10yr old single malt - last one on the shelf. Plenty of Black Bush around to try later.

    I picked up a bottle of Aberfeldy 12 this evening. I've never tried this one before. I'll crack it open this weekend... hopefully, I'll like it.
