New Year Resolutions!

Postby Deactivated Member » Sun Jan 01, 2006 4:09 pm

Perhaps not the type normally associated with this time of year :P I'm thinking more along the "resolving-to-buy-this-year-come-hell-or-high-water" lines.
Has anyone any thoughts on bottles they have to get this year along side what you'd normally purchase?
I've set my heart on a bottle each of
Highland Park 30,
Balvenie 30 and
Glenrothes 72.

Let's see what the year brings (a substantial pay rise would be nice :lol:)

If the promotion I put in for goes my way, I might...

Balvenie 25yo Single Barrel $275
Glenfarclas 25yo $105
Talisker 25yo $169
Laphroaig 30yo $249
Springbank 1966 "Local Barley" $355!
(2) Ardbeg 1974 "Provenance" $499 each!!!

I have them all located, now just pulling the trigger! And also rationalizing it to myself and the wife. :shock:

I was going to resolve not to drink on Sundays but today's a Sunday and I knew I wouldn't last the day so I didn't bother with that one...

As for resolving to buy whisky?! That one's easier but I haven't done that either. I've got a couple of cases ordered which should arrive this _year_ if the big wheels of the LCBO turn and the red tape gets cut as it should. Otherwise I'll just be buying a little bit of this and that as the LCBO releases it. With minimum case orders I can't try everything I'd like to!

Nothing very ambitious but top of my to get list currently are:

Sazerac 6yo
Amrut
Lot 40 (Canadian)
Rosebank 12yo ff

Probably order them all when the Sazerac comes in. I like the look of the other lists a lot !!
