recent visit to the shop: HP12 - $30, "The Speyside" 12 for $21, worth at least tyring for that price I figured, and Glenmo 10 in the new packaging (gift pack with two glasses) for $36. The new Glenmo bottles look quite nice.

Sean: What version (year) of the Laggy DE were you able to acquire? I've got the 1979 DE.

I've just acquired the following, after our tasting:
Aberlour A'Bunadh Batch 18 OB
Edradour Straight from the cask Madeira 1994 OB
Glen Rothes 12 yo 1994 OB (just a dram left there)
Isle of Jura 10 yo OB (New presentation)
Springbank 10 yo OB

if they are I'm gonna freak because the manager of the store I frequent said he isn't aware of glenmo coming in a gift set after I told him it does! I'd get the glenmo just for the glasses!!!


the glasses don't have caps and they're technically "crystal tumblers" but they are quite nice, rounded, curved in at the top for nosing, etc.. This was from a NH shop so it should show up in their online inventory. I hadn't had the Glenmo in a while and actually did get it for the glasses and forgot that it's a nice dram anyway now that I've opened it. The tumblers are quite heavy, too, about an inch thick solid on the bottom.

Yummm.

Cheers everyone,

Does that "(2)" indicate that you bought two bottles? :o I don't suppose your holiday whisky budget includes any gifts for me. :lol: I tried a small pour of Laphroaig 30yo at the end of a whisky festival but didn't have the taste buds left to truly appreciate it. Enjoy!

Yes, I think I burned a hole in my wallet. Then I turned around and got these yesterday on a day trip:

(5) Laphroaig 15yo (completely disappeared around home)
(1) Laphroaig 10yo C/S
(2) Lagavulin 1991 Distiller's Edition
(1) Glenfarclas 21yo

I'd like to say I'm done for the year, but I've got a Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and some Four Roses Small Batch & Single Barrel set aside for me to pick in two weeks. :oops:

Lots of nice purchases here these past days.

I'm still holding on to my money as I just deposited a guarantee for my new home, blowing away any savings I had... Guess I'll have to work a little bit harder ;)

edit: which doesn't mean I'm not still waiting for that Laga 21 to arrive at my local shop. Will get that one together with a Bowmore 21 (old style) as soon as it's there..

The UPS man has been very good to me. He dropped off 2 Bruichladdich 1970s and a 1981 Talisker 20 yo today. Not to be outdone, the DHL guy dropped off 2 Lagavulin 21s. I loved it when they fight over me! :wink:

Life is good!

Hey, I resemble that remark! Truth be told, I lucked into both. One shop just happened to get the Lagavulin in the day I inquired and they basically said, "How many do you want?" And the Laddies were just sitting on the shelf forever; there were tons of dust on the tins...

Every dog has his day... :D

Good work Sherried Malt but you can understand one or two of us being just a little green. :mrgreen: I hope you got the laddie 70's at a good price.

It's all good, Les. Now if I can just hide the bills from my wife... :o :)

As for the Laddies, I've never seen one before, so I just took them. It was the equivalent of 110 pounds. Hope that was a good price...

SM that was a great price. It is becoming extremely rare over here now. You have to pay around the £200 mark if you can get it. I have one and a half bottles left. It's one of my all time favourites. So it's special occassions only. Well done. Just tell Mrs SM that is an investment.

Ardmore OB Quarter Cask, introductory offer at Sainsburys - IWBRNT :wink:

Also picked up a 'Dreaded Lurgie' (Glenburgie 16yo) from Oddbins.

Whilst there I tried the Balvenie 14yo Roasted Malt:

Thanks, I've had a few bottles of the 10 before but never tried the 15 or 17 so I'm looking forward to it. I wish more tasting packs like this were widely available, makes a nice way to sample older malts for less money..
