    Ardbeg Uigeadail. Not my favorite Ardbeg, but it's still a great one.

    After the news about the coming changes to Mortlach, I developed more than a passing interest in this distillery these past few weeks:

    > IB Ian Macleod Chieftain's Mortlach 16 / 1995-2011 - # 7282, 54.2%
    > IB Ian Macleod Chieftain's Mortlach 22 - Cask # 5159, 50%
    > IB Silver Seal Mortlach 21 / 1991 (bottled 2013) - Cask # 4246, 56.3%
    > IB Douglas Laing Old & Rare Platinum Mortlach 18 / 1992-2011, 58.1%

    Research has never been so fun! (Also celebrating my Tigers win over the Kentucky Wildcats!!! GEAUX TIGERS!!!)

    Laphroaig 18. Creamy and sweet, with mild smoke and a great medicinal iodine tang. I will probably put a bottle or two aside if I can find it in the $70 range again.

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

    Finished up leftover A'bunadh from yesterday. I get a pinch of the sulphur as this oxidizes but it doesn't really detract from the overall presentation. I've noticed with ample time the sherry begins to blend with this delicious caramel note that is more reminiscent of a wheated bourbon.

    Since it's semi on-topic, I wanted to talk Mortlach. I've read a few tidbits much earlier in this thread regarding the official bottling of the 16 year. It's at least $120 delivered to the US for this one bottle, so definitely an investment. Should I just stick to the independent Mortlach's that are available in Chicago (and often under $100) or give my palate a good perspective with this official release?
