    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Tonight it was a nice little pour of
    • Regular 10 yr
    • Sherry Finished
    • Port Finished
    • Sauternes Finished
    • 18yr
    • 25yr (special pour - they brought this for the tasting)
    With Annabel Meikle Whisky Creator & Sensory Expert Master Distiller from Glenmorangie at Julio's tonight. She and her team are just wonderful folks.

    I am not a big scotch fan, but I liked these and the 25 yr was just wonder ful with graet complexities of a bourbon with little to no oak taste to it more than the appropriate balance

    What a great Glenmoranie flight.....I am having a wee dram of Glenfarclas 12-a wonderful dram at any price, and even better for $35.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Thanks... it was good. The peat in each was mod/low so I really got to enjoy the whiskey. I picked up a Sauternes and Port finish for a couple buddies and got Annabel to sign them... the 18 was tied for my second favorite with teh Sauternes. The 25 yr was the best of the bunch.

    What I like about the Sauternes is that it was not real sweet. It was very subtle and added good dimentions to the whiskey. I find the cognac finished whiskeys overpower the whiskey... this was not the case at all here

    Most of my fellow scotch drinkers will tell you that I am one of the biggest Glenmorangie groupies out there. You have no idea how sick with envy I feel right now...

    My personal favorite was the Madeira finish, which has been, sadly, discontinued. I look forward to trying their Nectar D'or (the Sauterns finish) some time soon, though...

    Eric,
    This is one of those "righ place, right time" situations. It was a fluke that I was able to be in town... I went ahead and made the trip from Walthum to Westboro to pick up some bourbon from Julio's. Ryan had told me it was going on Tuesday, so I went down instead of Wednesday like I had planned to. Very glad I did...

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I started with Old Fitz, then joined my wife for some Speyside 12. This is from the same distillery that does Drumguish. I had some 5 yr old Drumguish in Scotland some years back and I think this is the same whisky, only 7 years older. It is well named, light, slightly floral, heather - a typical true speyside. Unfortunately I was going back for another wee dram, but my wife killed the bottle. Oh well, on to bigger and better things (i.e. a different bottle).
