    How's it treating you? Cask strength? I have an Old Malt Cask 29 from 82 that is currently #1 on the open for birthday list.

    It's a very sweet malt with an oily palate - malty, fruity, honeyed, and vanilla... This is from a sample swap & it is an unexpected delight to discover another great expression.

    That all sounds delightful. Thanks for the notes! I think this was the first 1982 bottle I ever bought, looking forward to sharing it with friends more than ever.

    Re: What Wee Dram Are You Enjoying Now - Spring/Summer 2014

    Opened a bottle of Springbank 10 last night, had a couple drams from it. This one tastes really rich, but the Connemara-like peat presence mixed with some sharper sherry notes tells me that I need to leave this bottle open for a few hours, or even possibly decant. The beautiful Springbank profile that I've enjoyed at whisky bars is hiding just out of site. Getting bits an pieces, just not the whole picture. Instead I'm getting some serious tongue-numbing cough syrup.

    On the bright side, I came back to my bottle of Kilchoman Machir Bay 2012 I opened awhile back, and it has seriously smoothed out. Instead of sharp biting lemon and peat in the arrival, I'm getting peat and soft citrus notes. The development and finish both contain a creamy note that I can only describe as "TCBY White Chocolate Mousse" flavor. I get this occasionally in peated whiskies that have younger spirit in them (I've picked it up in Ardbeg Corryvreckan, not sure how old that stuff is, but my money says it has some younger stuff blended in there), and it's a real joy for me when I do taste it. Absolutely thrilled with the young complexity of this whisky. Can't wait until they have older products ready to go.

    On the back porch with the dogs, CB Delilah's and Freddie King. Life is pretty good.

    How is that Delilah's bottling? V&T has some and I think about it from time to time.

    I know Tom was very bearish on the new anniversary Peat Monster. Still blows my mind that Tom found a CB he didn't care for.
