Hutch - you have really piqued my interest in The Balvenie. These days I have little opportunity to splurge on Scotch whiskey, but I'm well overdue a splurge and now I know my next investment. Of course I could suggest the purchase to my BIL for an opportunity to sample before hoarding a bottle of my own. He makes several trips to Europe yearly and makes a point of bringing back Scotch that isn't available in the states. He and I are the only Scotch drinkers in the family. So far, I've not fallen in lust with anything - though I've developed a bit of a taste for the one with the essense of iodine! Never thought that would happen - and can never remember the name. Quite an odd drink - yet interesting.
Fortunately for my pocketbook, I've always preferred virtually the cheapest of American beers. Cheap beer, pricey Scotch and wine - it just has to be good!
So - off to a bottle of the High Life before bed. If nothing else, The Balvenie will be my Merry Christmas to me this year!
