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

    I had some Balvenie doublewood 12 last night... man I enjoy that whisky! I know a lot think it's overpriced for a 12 year, and often I have to agree, but when I can find it for $40-50 I have to get a bottle since it's just so tasty. I still prefer the 15 year but that runs above $100 in some places!

    Springbank 16 CS Amontillado finish and Longrow 14 CS Madeira finish. Satisfying, deep, funky warmth still lingering an hour later. Not a drop of water needed.

    Hmmm... Tell me more. I've passed by these multiple times. Especially curious about the Longrow. Experimental finishes can affect these malts in dramatically different ways, and they ain't cheap so I'm looking for some more specific guidance.

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

    *Hiccup*



    Pouring samples always affords me a chance to sip "Dim Sum" style... getting my Balvenie TUN 1401 3-6-9 on!

    Big thx to the generous SB peeps for making this possible.

    Nice line-up (and well composed photo). Looking forward to the comparison.

    Still getting over a head cold / cough but couldn't wait to try these side-by-side... In the small bit that I had, the 9 seemed the least sweet/fruity (slight bitterness even) on the palate & had the most heat.

    The 3 is the wonderful strawberry jam in a glass I remembered and the 6 was in the middle (this bottle is really coming into its own with me).

    9 was just opened so it may round out a little in a few weeks - looking forward to revisiting these when I recover.
