I'm not sure how much more I'll be getting, but my wife let it slip that I'm getting a gift certificate to a local liquor shop from my in-laws. If I do end up getting that, then I'll probably get a bottle of Glenfarclas 105.
I got a bottle of Wild Turkey 12 yo and a bottle of Sastuimo Shochu.
Shochu is a traditional Japanese distilled beverage. It comes from 20% to 35% abv and is either aged or unaged. Satsuimo means sweet potato, but they make it from Barley, too. I am not sure what else.
My bottle is unaged. It is a sweet, pleasant tasting drink, maybe a hint of liquorice.

I also received 2 bottles of whisky from relative/co-workers. I got a Bruichladdich "Waves". Has anyone had this? It appears to be a duty free only. I am very excited to taste it. I also got an Oban 14.
Happy Holidays and Merry X-mas to everyone!
I also got a few whisky related items (books and dvd's):
Malt Project DVD: Speyside Festival
Ambituous Brew: Story of American Beer (non-whisky related)
Scots on Scotch
The Island Whisky Trail
Along with the bottles I already listed in this thread, I just got an Ardbeg 10 year old from my brother. He did good on that one!
My dad got a sampler pack of 6 mini's from the classic malt series, so I spent this afternoon sipping those with him, that was fun - a very good christmas.
Tattie: I also got The Simpsons Eighth Season!!
A month or so ago I helpfully pointed out my favorite whiskey (Highland Park) to my wife while at a liquor store, but it didn't show up under the Christmas tree. She probably doesn't want to encourage my deplorable habit!
