    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Reached for top shelf tonight. Started with Highland Park 18 which was spectacular and then Talisker 18. Every time I return to these drams I am blown away. Tonight was no exception. Cheers!

    I know it's a blended but my Dentist invited me by for some JW Blue label tonight. 2 really nice pours and I really could not believe how strooth this bottle was. Very nice,

    Glenfiddich 12 (new bottling). Big time fruit salad on the nose and palette. This is much better than I was expecting.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I have to agree. From a review I did a few years ago:
    "This is a thinking man's scotch. There is so much going on that to pick out all the flavors and accents can take an hour for just a shot. On the other hand, the blenders art is so refined that if you don't care to think you still have a very smooth enjoyable drink that is noticeably better then almost any other blend."

    If you think that's good, you should try Chivas Regal Royal Salute (21-year, all malt). Heckuva lot cheaper, too.

    HP 18 is never a disappointment, I totally agree.

    Here is my review of that from 12/06. I prefer the Blue if given the choice but the Chivas is a fine dram too.
