    Ledaig 10 year old. One of my new favourite Scotches! I'll take this over those overpriced Islays any day.

    I never hear of anyone actually drinking this. I tasted it when the rep was pouring at a liquor store and thought it was actually quite good, especially for the price. Haven't picked up a bottle though...

    Starting with wee dram from the lowland, Auchentoshan 10....soon to be followed by Balvenie FR....maybe close the night with just a wee bit of that Redbreast 12CS that I can't seem to leave alone right now.

    I decided to skip the peat and sherry bombs this evening and go with a ladylike lowlander, Rosebank 21. This one is stunning for its delicacy, despite being 53.8%. Don't mistake delicate for lack of flavor and nuance though, there is so much going on here. It is a very, very floral whisky with notes of lemony goodness wafting in and out and the tiniest bit of pepper spice. The finish is surprisingly long.

    if you like to be smacked in the mouth by boldness, this one is not for you. If you enjoy a truly complex whisky and can devote some time to it, this one delivers in spades.

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

    I brought a bottle of Macallan CS to a dinner party last night. This was partially an experiment on my end. I've been toying with the idea of doing "mobile whiskey tastings". I took a discrete poll of 11 people (mostly women) before the tasting and asked how many of them liked scotch. One women and two men answered yes. At the end of the dinner, I gave them an quick 1 minute intro about the basics of whiskey and single malt, and lead them in a brief diluting, nosing, and tasting of the Macallan. After the tasting, I polled everyone discretely, and 10 out of 11 said they enjoyed the tasting very much, and would consider ordering a sherried single malt as an after dinner drink. This was with assurance that they wouldn't hurt my feelings in the least if they didn't enjoy themselves, rather I would appreciate their candor. The one that didn't enjoy the tasting said that she didn't enjoy the burn of the whiskey when she swallowed and would not consider ordering it herself.

    I did my best to keep this fun, casual, and unpretentious. I offered suggestions on how to enjoy the spirit, but wasn't pedagogical. All and all, very rewarding for me to introduce so many people to one of my favorite things.
