    Re: What Wee Dram Are You Enjoying Now - Spring 2013 ...

    Celebrated a wedding anniversary yesterday and had a bit of everything. Several beers before and at the beginning of dinner, some 1987 port with dessert, and capped the evening with Old Pulteney 21 and a Macallan CS.

    Being a cheap bastard tonight and drinking some Bank Note blended. $20 for a 1L. It's pretty much everything that the reviews I read say it is. Not too complex, but utterly drinkable. A fine dram at such a low price.

    Currently sipping on a Reisetbauer 7yr Single Malt.

    It was a Christmas gift, and is unlike any other whisky I've ever had.

    Springbank 14 CS (Amontillado) - much much better this time around compared to when I had it last... a few months after opening and this bottle has really opened up nicely. Classic Springer sweetness with a layer of sherry rancio that sneaks up on you on the palate as I don't get it much on the nose (may have to do with my allergies though).

    Here's my impressions ~6 months ago:

This is my first pull from this bottle but I find that dessert wine finishes add too much to an already "sweet" Springbank malt (tastes too "winey" to me) - it's a tad hot and astringent too but it may take some time for it to open up and a few more tastings to get my mind around this.

    Caveat: I had Indian food before this so my palate may have been way out of whack ;-)
    Just goes to show you not to write off a bottle - this Springbank 14 Amontillado has really turned it around and is a very very good dram. It's much better rounded and integrated now so I don't get the astringency and curiosly enough, I don't find it too sweet anymore. This could be because my palate's been more "bourbonized", but I think the time after opening has served to improve it as well.

    Longrow 7, finished in Gaja Barolo casks. You'd think a malt this young would be brash and in your face, but it's a fresh, lively, balanced dram with a delicate tartness interplaying with gentle brine and blooming peat popping into a smooth smoky finish. A step up from the OB Longrow 10, IMO, but I've yet to encounter a Longrow I didn't love.

    Tried a couple Kilchomans: Machir Bay and Loch Gorm. Both of them tasted their age. Preferred the Machir Bay.
