I'll kick off the new thread with this Bowmore I picked up today.  From what I can gather, the 17yr is discontinued and this label was phased out in 2007.

My first bottle from each of these distilleries, found a place that has a few dusty Signatory bottlings at a pretty good price will be going back at some point, they also had some dusty Arran single barrels and the prices were fair, if I hadn't already grabbed the other two bottles in the pic...

That Kilkerran 12yr is a great dram for the money.  I've had a few different Kilchoman offerings and they were all respectable.  They do a good job with younger whisky, similar to Bruichladdich.

Birthday coming up and the wife and I are moving into our new home this week so I thought I'd better get something to celebrate... decent price too (compared to TWE and MoM).

Anybody opened a current bottling of Pulteney 12 year recently? Got a flyer on a decent price (under $40) and may take a flyer on one...

Spent waaaay too much money on a Springbank 19yo recharred sherry single cask and a bottle of the committee release of Ardbeg Kelpie (which was just sitting on the shelf!) today.

I've been hounding the one legitimate Springbank retailer in Indy about the 14yr Bourbon Wood.  It's supposed to hit NY any day, but they don't know if Indiana will receive an allocation.  -_-

I'd be all over that one too.  Is it being released widely in the States?

I want to say there were 9,000 bottles to go around.  That's in line with other LE releases, so I bet Binny's will get some in your area.

Couldn't resist. My wife bought be the glasses last year for my Birthday and I'd always wished I'd gotten one of the original bottles from the movie...

Will be a while before I crack mine. I read somewhere it was 2k bottles in the UK so not sure if I'll see many more.

Gotcha.  I have found some and not sure if I want to spend this much on a Johnnie Walker Black.  However it is supposed to be smokier and fuller bodied.  I will probably end up buying it. lol

Bought the Mortlach last week from a store that had a few Signatory's for $60 a pop, liberated the other two today. Have a buddy who is a scotch guy but won't touch my Islay's when he is at my place so he is more excited than me.
