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

    Cracked open a bottle of FO Macallan 15 last night while cooking diner. I haven't had any in a while and still find it quite enjoyable....although the price creep is killing me.

    Still working on my Laphroaig QC that opened on 12/31. This is just some wonderful and fresh SMS that will certainly become a regular stocked item in plural form in my inventory.

    The 15 year bottling is one of my favorite whiskies. It compares very favorably to Highland Park 18.

    A bottle of Strathisla 12 was emptied last night. This is a superior product much over-looked. Nicely sherried Speysider with an old-school malt profile. I love having a bottle like this in the cabinet for when I'm too tired to delve into the enlightening complexity of a more expensive bottle. In the malt world, I don't believe it gets any better than this for < $50.

    After hearing it described as smelling like a "sacristy", I bought a bottle of Clynelish 14. I'm liking it so far, but finding that it needs a decent amount of air (and even a little water) to open up. It comes on a little tight and almost bitter in the finish otherwise.

    Aaaand, I just looked into this one online to discover that the bottle has changed as well as the proof, going to 40% from 43%. In his review, Ralfy notes that the new bottling holds a diminished whisky. What a shame. I guess I had better round up a few of the old green, square bottles while they're still around.

    Did you get that from me, I wonder? The sacristy note, I mean. Every time I open the bottle it brings me back to some dusty church. I just had what is probably the penultimate pour from my bottle last night. Water (even a couple drops) really makes this one evolve.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    To start the Friday evening festivities I finally opened a bottle of Glengoyne 10 picked up the fall...pretty good stuff. Now moved on to Talisker DE '13....excellent!
