    Nice choice! Make sure to try it first without water first.

    I just made a crazy find:

    Caol Ila DE in the US! The CI unpeated looks promising too. Don't know much about that mezcal, but I'm always up for a good one. Willett bourbon is usually top notch, so I'm hoping this one will be too.

    My own bottle of George T. Stagg, 2007 bottling, lovingly nicknamed HAZMAT IV.

    If this is THAT good I may go pick up a few more bottles.

    I didn't see that CI 10 was unpeated earlier -- I do not even know what to think about that. Very nice score with the Caol Ila DE. The bourbon could be interesting but I can't even think about bourbon when such objects of my desire as that DE are in view.

    These arrived today. This wine has been highly recommended by fellow SFers and a local shop was willing to part with them for a very good price.

    Its pretty good without water, but with some so you take it down to the mid forties its even better.

    That coal ila de bottle you picked up looks tempting. Have only tasted there regular 12 year old and i liked it.

    What does a Fireblock Grenache cost?
    All this talk is making me want to try it.

    Well at Just Grapes it's something like $20.99 but cheaper with my discount! Johnny picked his bottles up for $13 or $14 bucks a pop IIRC!!! It's well worth it at any of the above price points.

    You can get in online from Just Grapes for 20% off the in store price.

    Great choice, Nadurra is one of my favourite malts. There's something about the complexity that outshines the 18yo and 15yo French Cask IMHO, making it my favourite standard Glenlivet.
