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

    Follow-up to the 1:1 vatting of Clyenlish 14:Glendronach 15 CS Cask 2045:

    I am smelling some brine, raisins, faint soy sauce, and generic fruit cotlets/turkish delight with some nuttiness, and a little freshly peeled ruby red grapefruit.

    In the mouth, Clynelish leads off with the waxy brininess & faint citrus then Glendronach follows up with the light smoke, cacao & dried fruits - the sweet/salty combo gives an "umaminess" and finishes off with more dusty cacao & wisp of smoky bitterness.

    Utterly delicious - I'm going to play with the proportions a little more and back off some on the Glendronach and maybe add a dash of something peaty.
