    I really like it. The color surprised me, though not sure it should have, definitely took on some color from the portwood. If you like Laphroaig, I imagine you'll enjoy this. NAS but didn't seem overly young, very comparable to the 10yr in my opinion. You get all the smoke and peat but some of the sweetness from the port. I'd consider picking up another if I came across it, but I was surprised enough to find this one in the wild. Plus I have a 16yr Laphroaig from K&L on order which should round out my Laph needs for some time.

    Thanks for that - I'll probably end up pulling a bottle in after reading your impressions.

    Benriach Curiositas 10 Yr. Nice peated Speysider, bonus was on clearout at the Manitoba Government Monopoly $10.75 off so it was $43.16 plus tax. Very nice dram for that price here in Canada.

    I like it too, though it is a bit one-noted. I think the finish pairs well with the Laphroaig characteristics. I prefer the more gentle Laphroaig expressions, and this one is a little clumsy (though I find the 10yo to be the same), but it's a nice riff for $60.

    What Wee Dram Are You Enjoying Now - Fall 2013/Winter 2014

    Thanks Aaron. I wonder if it'll develop some more depth after some opening up time... But I'll get a bottle for the winter/fall bar menu :-)

    Re: What Wee Dram Are You Enjoying Now - Fall 2013/Winter 2014

    I made some new friends this week who are apparently high-roller type guys. We met at a private cigar lounge last night and after chatting about a few things walked across the street to the liquor store where one of the guys picked up a Glenmorangie Signet...

    Which we promptly emptied in about 2 hours. Man, that's some good stuff. I wouldn't buy my own bottle at the price, but it's a delicious chocolate and orange dram for after dinner. Or anytime.

    I am sipping the Lagavulin Distiller's 1994 tonight. It was open and remained untouched as Summer heat and smokey peat are not a good mix for me, but it is absolutely hitting the spot with this rainy weather.

    A nice bold pour of Macallan CS and a Cohiba while out blowing leaves in this more than wonderful fall weather.
