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

    Glenlivet 15yr French Oak - the nose on this is sour apples & smoke. As I'm nearing the end of this bottle, this expression keeps getting better and better...

    Glendronach 17yr 1994 (PX) Single Cask # 260 for Spec's to finish off the night - not as syrupy as the last 15yr Glendronach PX but still very delicious

    Word had it Heisenberg enjoyed a dram or two of this on occasion, when he could find the time.

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

    Tasted the following whisky with a couple of friends today

    Clynelish A.D. Rattray single cask, 16 years old, 116.2 proof - K&L cask 8781
    Glendronach, 1993 19yo Single Cask Oloroso Sherry Butt, 109.4 proof - K&L cask 490
    Glenfarclas 1979 "The Family Casks" fourth fill sherry cask, 83.4 proof - K&L cask 8072
    Mortlach Cheiftain’s 22 year old Single Malt, Sherry Butt, 116.2 proof - K&L cask 5160
    Compass Box Delilah, 80 proof

    K&L whisky.jpeg
    Clynelish was a good starter and while a bit lighter with a very creamy in texture and lovely vanilla and fruit taste in a nice balance. Very pleasant and improved with a drop or two of water.

    The Glendronach and Mortlach were similar sherry finished whisky with great mouthfeel and finish, a bit of an almost herbal component, long finish and a bit more spice from the Mortlach. Both improved with a touch of water but were easily drinkable at cask strength. Both were excellent.

    The Glenfarclas was another complete change of pace with a rich oily mouthfeel and very little sherry component but lots of wood/leather and yet not overly so. Finish went on for a long time and was perfect without water for me. I didn't find water really added anything in this one.

    The Delilah was a bit of an afterthought and was tasted last. By that time it seemed downright bland.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
