    Booker's 2013-6 which I paid $32 for. Makes some of these Willett 7-9 year old bottles everyone goes ga ga over and pay 2-3x too much for taste like cat piss for the price. There, I said it.

    Agree. I've really enjoyed the Roundtable ones. The 2013-7 is maple and nuts and doesn't at all drink like 128 proof. Highly recommend it. But this is also for foreign whisky.

    I enjoyed an older Froaig CS a few nights ago. Damn good malt. So earthy and dirty. Just a mouth full of sod! The methylate and iodine notes in Laphroaig are so pronounced. I love it!

    Had a sample of Balvenie 21 portwood, finishing the night off with a glass of Laphroaig 18. On the Balvenie side of things, it was a very nice dram, though the 50ml bottle tasted a bit more acidic than expected. I watered it until it stopped smelling acidic, then let it sit for about 30 minutes and that seemed to calm things down. Ended up being a very nice dram, with layers of sugary complexity both in nose in taste. Red fruits, birthday cake, all the classics. The Laphroaig 18, as I have mentioned before, is a favorite of mine, and did not disappoint tonight.

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

    Tried a very odd one last night, Penderyn. This is the main release thats available in the US and is madeira finished, I believe they have several other finishes but I have not seen them generally available in my domestic travels. I tried this whisky once before at a scottish pub in Victoria, BC, and really enjoyed it, purchased a bottle soon after and it's been sitting on my shelf for the last 2 years. Finally opened it and it's not how I remembered, though to be fair, I've tried many whiskys since and my palate has developed at least a little. To me this one came off as all heavy, cloyingly sweet both in the nose and finish but more subdued in the palate. Lots of very (over?) ripe fruits all throughout, with the closest profile being a late harvest wine, something like a riesling. I'm not sure I particularly enjoy it but so far I've only tried it neat. I'm going to add some water, and then try with a little ice, because I have this feeling this could make a great summer time pour.
