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

    My laddie 10 is now in the land of the departed, I opened up my bottle of G&M Mortlach 15. Holy crap this is perfect. Sherried, but not too sugary. There is a savory element toward end of the development and into the finish. Lots of christmas spices. Delicious. I have finally found a sherried malt I love. Time to buy more of this . . .

    Hmmm, I don't think I have seen this around my parts. Going to have to look for it now...

    It's a semi-official bottling. Up until the new mortlachs dropped, the only one available in the U.S. I should also point out that this offering is pretty uncomplicated. It's not one you need to brood over. Everything that's there is right there. That's not always what I want, but I'll be damned if it didn't hit the hell out of the spot last night.

    Just finished off Yamakazi 18 I found this summer for cheap. It was a nice pour, the nose was fantastic but the finish was little too woody for me. I'm glad I had a bottle, but probably won't invest in another at current prices.

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

    The last two nights has been a new bottle of Laphroaig 18. I'm still learning to tease out the flavors behind the peat, smoke and phenolics - but there is an interesting spicy sweetness back there that I haven't quite pinned down - apple pie and grapes? I also appreciate the higher proof (48%) for a standard bottling, allows for some playing with the water additions. A bit of water really makes the peat elements recede and the sweetness comes forward.

    More research needed...
