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

    I went back to a place today where I had left a tun1401 #3. I didn't have much hope it would be left and it wasn't. Still 2 bottles of batch 6 though.

    I never could find the 6 around here or online but I didn't look super hard. Now I'm starting to keep my eyes out for the 9.

    Just about to get into a nice pour of the Kirkland 18 year from Costco that couldn't more clearly be Macallan. $33 for that (even though it's at 80 proof) is a steal.

I still prefer the 15 year but that runs above $100 in some places!
    I love both. I can get the 12 for $30 around here and bought the 15 for $55.88. I could drink those all day at that price. The 15 is one of my favorites.

    Big thx to the generous SB peeps for making this possible.
    That's so beautiful that it almost brings a tear to my eye.

    Me and the old lady double teamed a bottle of Corryvreckan last night. This was after she had a glass of Octomore. She's from Scotland, though, so no big deal.

    Hah - that's cool (or hot)! I remember not wanting to post for a while when I hit 666 to savor it ;-)

    It's pretty rad your wife can keep up with you - mine doesn't even want to be in the same room as me when I'm sipping on anything peaty.

    So, when you do want to ship me a few cases?

    Those prices are great, I can't find anything even close to that price here and that includes online, best I can do is in the 40's shipped for the 12 and 70's shipped for the 15 and even that is down to a single retailer that I know of, the rest have the 15 right next to $100 before shipping, yikes!

    I do some traveling for work to both KY and DE and I remember last time finding good prices in DE. Normally I look for fun bottles I can't get at home but with the price changes around here I may start stocking up on Balvenie, it truly is one of my favorite drams.

    So, please don't take my mancard, but I'm not the largest fan of peated whiskeys myself. I actually prefer the sweeter highlands though I do love the softly peated drams like Oban. I've also had some very old (for me) pours of the heavier peated ones ranging from 25 to 38 years old and I love those, the peat has mellowed so much and turned into something wonderful. My wife, on the other hand, LOVES peat. We always stock Bowmore, typically the 12 year or the 15 year darkest, because she needs that peat fix at times. Whenever I pick up a bottle of any scotch her first question is "is it peated?!?" and when she sees peat listed on the label she gets so excited.

    It's crazy when we go to a cigar lounge, I'm there sipping a highland or speyside malt with a mild Ashton while she has an Islay and some dark Macanudo! People do not know what to think...

    Having some Dimple Pinch 15 year. a well-rounded, satisfying dram that I wouldn't hesitate to serve to guests (if there's any left)
