    Default Speakeasy Aquisitions - 2012

    Anyone score anything sweet this holiday, or pick something up special for the new year?

    I scored big. SWMBO gave me a 1.75 liter bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin AND a bottle of Glenlivet 15 year old scotch.
    My mileage does vary.

    A friend of mine just gave me a bottle of Glenfiddich 12 that his mom gave him because it gives him heartburn.

    The wife gave me a bottle of Balvenie Caribbean Rum Cask and the Michter's fairy dropped off bottles of their Bourbon, Rye, and American Blend.

    That rum cask is excellent. A great value from the Balvenie line.

    I ended up with a bottle of the 17 year Madeira Cask. The Balvenie might be my favorite distillery. I am only lacking the 15 year single barrel to own the entire line - aside from the fabled 30 year which is prohibitively expensive.

    I scored big...

    I bought myself a bottle of Suntory The Yamizaki 12.
    My wife gave me a bottle of Edradour 10.
    My mom gave me a bottle of Glenlivet Nadurra 16.
    An executive at work gave me a bottle of Bowmore 12 as a thank you for bailing out a failing project.
    I bought a bottle of Four Roses small batch to replace a bourbon I finished.

    All of these arrived inside of 3 days. That's one hell of an acquisition rate! Sadly, my Auchentoshan Classic passed from this world and my Laphroig 10 is soon to follow.
    The winter boys... drinking heavy water from a stone.

    The Martell vs. Courvoisier thread I was reading earlier put me in nostalgic mind frame so I got my late grandfather's bottle of Couvoisier XO and had a pour. Not only was he a cognac man, but he collected fine crystal, so I had it in one of his Waterford brandy snifters. I miss the guy....

    I'm a Balvenie fan, but haven't tried that one. How is it?

    Quite nice. The cask give it a nice slight sweetness.

    My birthday haul this weekend was Balvenie 14 year old Carribean cask, a bottle of Jura lightly peated Scotch and White Owl rye whiskey.

    I think the local liquor store had a pricing mistake: Talisker 18 for $59.!!!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    My lovely bride gifted me a bottle of Ardbeg 10, and Cabela's and Home Depot gift cards (well the Cabela's card and Ardbeg were for me)

    Just got a couple of bottles of Westvleteren 12 in a trade. Can't wait to taste this brew side by side with Rochefort 10.

    Score of the past few months is a case of Hopslam--which I am enjoying right now.

    Nice trade! Great beer but not so easy to get your hands on.
