    No one is allowed to criticize my choice of drink unless they first pick up my bar tab.

    Well, I occasionally will add a drop or two to a CS pour... So I can't say the inverse of my original statement is 100% true.

    If we ever meet in the flesh, maybe I will do that.

    And you can drink whatever the hell you want.

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

    Decided to splurge after a beer and burger at the bar and had them pour me a dram of the Yamazaki 1984. I know it was distilled in 1984, bottled in 2009, and has influence from American, Spanish and Japanese barrels. This stuff is deep, fragrant, burly juice, but it's also lithe, agile and vibrant. A sumo wrestler expertly doing ballet poses. Roasted almonds and stewed pears over a bed of sandalwood and pipe tobacco on the nose, giving way to a taste of dense creme brûlée, hints of tangerine, and loads of melon/pear fruity sweetness developing mid palate into a clean, malty, toasty heat that works nicely into an immense finish of sandalwood, pipe tobacco, lavender and burnt sugar. Very tame, balanced wood for the age and a stunner neat. Wish I'd thought to play with a drop or two of water, but it was just too good.

    Just opened a bottle of E.H. Taylor Tornado. Enjoying a dram neat. All I can say is I'm sure as hell glad I picked up 3 bottles of this stuff.

    If you have had JW Green (before it becomes a dusty!) then you get a chance to taste a bit of Linkwood along with the other main single malt components, Talisker, Caol Isla and Craggenmore.

    A really interesting but different whisky to me.

    A Linkwood distillery expression is one dusty I would like to come across.

    Have had JWGreen but would like to try Linkwood on its own. Good to know that it's in my JWG though!

    It's amazing what you can learn around here!

    The Whisky Exchange (and no doubt others) is ready when you are! A number of distillery and independent bottlings of this on their website (I have no affiliation with this or any other retailer!) but I don't know if it can be found on this side of the pond.

    I did find this one but I know nothing about them.
