    I can't find one like that anywhere.

    I'll keep an eye out as I'm in the market for new glasses anyway.

    not at my post...
    Looks like a variation of the traditional Old Fashioned Glass....that's probably going to be a tough one to find, since it was an antique...

    Thanks for suggesting this. I actually came across it at Costco the other day for $27 so I put it in the cart. Very smooth, definitely picking up another bottle.

    I have a nice bottle of Glenlivet 18. $$$, but it's sipped neat (no way am I polluting 18 years of perfection). I also keep a 12 year around, at all times. Same policy as the 18, neat and sipped. The way it evaporates off your tongue is just amazing! A pleasure of life, for sure!

    You guys know that almost all spirits get water added to them for final proof prior to bottling, right?

    Of course they "proof it down", but the distillers use THEIR water sources. Water is the biggest ingredient, 60% by volume give or take.

    My brother got a $200 bottle of Scotch, as a tip for computer work. He doesn't drink Scotch, and told me they killed the bottle at a party, MIXING IT WITH COKE !

    Try searching:


    Most Popular Collectibles Patterns | Replacements, Ltd.

    Look in glassware.

    I had some Mikasa high ball glass wear in need of a few to complete a set. They had it.

    Try using the “contact us”, request “help locate a pattern “ and email a picture. That way, you can review lots of patterns simultaneously as they research the pattern or just await their feedback.

    About 10 years ago I was given a bottle of Glenlivet for doing some computer work. Single malt Scotch has been my go to ever since.

    I try to stay around $50 when restocking, with some flexibility. I prefer it from the Islay region and it's never better than when paired with a stogie. I use one rock. I like how the flavor changes as it melts.

    Here are my favorites:
    Lagavulin 8
    Foggie Moss Aultmore 12
    Glenfarclas 12
    Laphroaig 10
    Bruichladdich the Classic Laddie

    I have a bottle of Glenfarclas 40 for special occasions. That's some damn good stuff.
