thats a good price tattie, i seen the bowmore legend ove rhere for the first time in ages today and it was £18.99 a bottle, so $20 is a bargin, works out £10 a bottle..... we get fleeced over here!

okay, here is a cheesy film of the malts I bought from Parkerswhisky recently.... very cool of Richard to bring me them..... thanks a ton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll have to work on my filming, this vid is very short & rough!


anyway, if you want to buy some good malts from a person who is really an enthusiast and cares about his customers, Parkers is the place.... drop Richard an email and chat with him, he`s flexible and willing to go the extra mile for you.
mention whiskymag, myself or just enthusiasm and he`ll do what he can to make your shopping complete.
two big thumbs up!!!!
:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
ps; who else has offered to deliver malts while on vacation!

Scapa 14 for my guests this weekend to enjoy. I hope it is as smooth as I've heard.

Packaging gives me heartburn though... :headbang:

200ml 'samples' from DL/OMC Macallan, Bowmore, Glenlivet and Port Ellen. All very good. Also picked up from the latest SMWS bottling list a older Strathisla, a Cragganmore from a butt and a Balmenach. And a F&F Rosebank which I have have mentioned earlier in the week. I'm full now, my luggage will accept no more bottles.

The last purchase I did was at ebay for two bottles of Antiquary. These bottles are blended but what attracted me is the label. It is a picture of a man dressed in very old clothing style, facing backwards and reaching for a bottle in a cabinet with the inscription, "At last I found it" or so. These particular bottles were labeled in Italian but of course Antiquary is made in Scotland. I believe its old but there is no date whatsoever in the label. And the price I paid is very very reasonable if not cheap.

And a day before that, I received a bottle of 21 yr old Mortlach.

Just this minute have ordered a single rum cask and single bourbon cask bushmills (both 16yo), and a Macallan 18yo fine oak. Previous single cask Bushmills tried have been pretty good, and if the 12YO fine oak is anything to go by, the 18yo should be good too.

Yesterday took delivery of a Loch Lomond Organic grain, a Rittenhouse 100 proof rye, and a half case of Redbreast 15YO (STOCKING UP!).

Oh, and my wife's heading off to the US for a few days so she's been instructed to keep an eye out for any aged Ryes of Bourbons I might not have.

Today I picked up the last bottle I need for my upcoming tasting - Glenfarclas 25yo.

Usually I'm excited when I buy new bottles, but as this was decided beforehand with no room for improvising, it felt more like picking up groceries or something.
Still - I have had a couple of minis previously and very much look forward to sampling the delights of this dram. :D

I really couldn't afford this, but at the price point, I couldn't afford not to. Glenmorangie 15 @ $80 at Bayview LCBO.

Nice pics, Les!

We had another "father and son day" around here, still lots of rain, no walk in the woods possible, so again bernstein jun. and me headed across the border into Belgium. We found a biiiiiggg Carrefour supermarket, a Glen Elgin 12yo OB (€27,50) and a Fettercairn 12yo OB (€23,50). Never had any of these - so...

Sititng in the airport now- I love Costa Rica duty free. Two bottles of Highland Park 25, 48.1%??), one for me and one for another member of the board. $129 each. I was not going to be one for myself, but at that price, well you know, it would have been rude not to. :wink: :thumbsup:

Why am I so weak? My self imposed moratorium on (opening) new bottles lasted about 6 days. For some reason this afternoon something got me thinking about how great the Glenlivet Nadurra is and then after work I had to pick up a bottle of wine for someone's birthday tomorrow and of course the store I was in stocks Nadurra, so of course I had to get it.

This one is stronger than the last one I had, 59.2% vs 57.2%. It's from batch 1206B. This will be opened and sampled tonight.

Well, since I am quite new here, and just started my Single Malt 'collection', I'd thought I post all my whiskies (purchased the past week or so) to give me a quickstart on some different styles and flavors.

In chronological order:

Bowmore 1989 Limited Edition (tasted: was pretty good)
Highland Park 30yo (If only I had an occasion to open this one)
Highland Park 18yo (tasted: wow!)
Bowmore 1990 Limited Edition (sherry matured, for comparison with the bourbon matured 1989)
Ardberg 10yo (heard some raving reviews here)
Cragganmore 12yo (same thing)

This is a modest list but should get me to experience some different whiskies. It is obviously far from complete, as my list of future purchases grows amazingly fast since I joined this board :)

K-Mile Welcome to the forums. That's not a bad list to compile in only 3 days you have a broad specrtrum there. That's a good start. Your right the HP18 is fantastic. Let us know how you get on with the others.

Thanks, and I will.

I just fear that if I open more of those I might have too many open at the same time, since I'm not sure yet how often I would drink any single one of them. And, besides that, having tasted all the others probably only would get me to buy some more I haven't tried yet.

I know, I know, I have been warned a couple of times here since my first post on the boards: this is going to be a fun but expensive hobby..

You are not wrong KM. Once you start to get behind in your drinking you will have to find somewhere to store all the bottles. Then there will be the distillery trips and whisky events to attend. At which you will always buy something. It's an enjoyable ride though.
