    Highly recommended. Limited batch. Get it while you can. Till UlrichUlrich chimes in and tells us it's just another brand in a fancy bottle.

    Ok. Now I am in Houston at a South African restaurant called Peli Peli in the Galleria. They have Pappy 10 and Pappy 12 year here. Ordered the 12 year. $35 but she gave me a great pour and I'm going to expense it. I just made a new year resolution. Drink more Pappy!

    In a hipster bar in downtown Dallas tonight. They want to charge $85 for Pappy 12 year. Same stuff I paid $35 for last night in Houston. F that noise. Drinking Weller 12 year instead. Practically same stuff and no $ guilt. That's called a solution friends.

    If it happens to be made in Japan, just keep walking until we tell you to stop. Really, just keep going.

    Here goes on scotch: I used to default to bourbon and only started on scotch a few years ago, mostly around the holidays with my dad. Because my dad tended towards the Speyside, sweeter stuff (e.g. for mass produced stuff, Glenfiddich), I defaulted to that for awhile, too. But I realized I like some of the peaty/smokier stuff (e.g., again for mass produced, your Laphroaig). We've tried various 15/18/21 year old stuff on occasion that's nicer than what I would pick up on a lark. I'm still a bit of a novice but I do enjoy a good scotch.

    Anyway, recently while I was out and about, I tried the Bunnahabhain 13-year marsala cask scotch. I couldn't find it in a shop at first, and went ahead and bought the more easily available standard 12-year and wasn't that impressed. But using the 1000corks website, which I think mgarbowskimgarbowski shared earlier (this website is amazing) I was able to find out that there is one store in Manhattan that carries it and another in Brooklyn.

    I'm not terribly great with tasting note vocabulary, but Astor Wines, which used to have the 13-yr in stock, describes it as follows:

    This limited edition cask finished single malt is one of the best releases we've tasted in years from this iconic Islay address. After a decade aging their classic peated single malt in ex-bourbon barrels, the spirit is decanted into premium marsala casks and finished by the sea for three years before being bottled un-chillfiltered at 46.3% ABV. Notes of spiced fruits are layered between roasted pecans, acacia honey, vanilla, a hint of sea spray and gentle smoke. There's a lot of flavor packed into this unassuming dram. A very intriguing offering indeed.

    One of my favorites so far this year. Runs about $80 w/tax

    If you like peaty, try Lagavulin and Caol Ila. Both are Islay Single Malts.

    Hudson Baby Bourbon was better than I though it would be. The price is steep down in Miami but I would do it again.

    Absolutely love Laphroaig and Lagavulin. Will have to try the Bunnahabhain for sure. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Reviving the thread, cause... well, bourbon.

    Winchester and Winchester Straight are both great bourbons for less than $30 a bottle. Has anyone else tried them?

    While I am loathe to participate in a thread glorifying the hipsterfication and corresponding price gouging of a spirit I've long enjoyed, I'll add a good one: Larceny.

    And screw you yankee bastards for making Bulleit cost $50. Less than 5 years ago, I paid $21 per bottle. Basil was $32.

    Then, you bastards ruined all of those, so I went to Four Roses. Now, you've fucked that too.

    F the lot of you.
