What to buy next?

Postby Minnesota Malt » Fri Dec 04, 2009 1:22 am

Its time for a new bottle. Which one to buy next and why? They are both on sale: Aberlour 12 is $32.99 and the Glenmo 10 is $34.99

Buy both. Why make it difficult? After all they are both on sale.

Great prices. I wish I were American.

O-oh say can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we flew
At the twilight's last gleaming?
...

Me thinks 'tis time for a trip to Vermont.

:D

You can't go wrong with Glenmo.

I voted for neither.

This was the thought that immediately sprang to my mind: "Set those dollars aside, add to them and go for the Aberlour 16 Year Old, which is a very, very good whisky!"

Of course, there's also the excellent a'bunadh to think about too.

Sale prices are nice, but real quality trumps them every time.

LSD,

Yes, I know that New Hampshire has lower prices but NH is twice as far a drive for me compared to Vermont...so Ganga is also right, and more right for my situation! Plus...my wife really likes Vermont: it's our favourite state overall.

:P

Hmmm. I also noticed that they have Oban 14 and A'bunadh on sale, both for $46.99.... I have had Oban 14 before, it was excellent, but I'm not sure if I should jump in and buy the A'bunadh without trying it. Never had a cask strength sherry before. Maybe I should start a new poll on these two.

Personally I'd take a good batch of a'bunadh over Oban 14 any day.

The ONLY possible consideration running contrary to this recommendation, in my mind at least, is that the Oban usually costs significantly more in my neck of the woods than does the a'bunadh. You'll have to judge the relative cost merits as regards your local pricing on this comparison, however, before deciding.

That said, I look on Oban 14 Year Old as a whisky that's not quite what it COULD be, while the a'bunadh is, 100%, WHAT IT IS, if you get my drift.

I get you. I think I'm gonna get the a'bunadh. Seems very intriguing. I had my first "true" cask strength on Thanksgiving (Scott's 1990 Bruichladidch). I think it was 59% abv and it was a treat. Other then that, I have never had a SMSW over 48% abv.
