    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Nice night of Scotch... Small tastes of Three Taliskers (74, 93, 20yr cask strength), Delwinie 15yr, Edradour 10yr, and one other... forget the name.

    Not a big Scotch fan but the Talsiker 20yr cask rocked

    I'm jealous on the Taliskers my friend. I haven't had a cask strength Talisker before but I love the 10 and 18. Sounds like a great scotch night!

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I am going on a diet for a month so I am forgoing scotch for a while. So last night I finish all of the open bottles I have. No worry, all of them are down to a couple of fingers. I finished off:

    Talisker 18
    Arran 12
    Clynelish 18

    However, I have a previous committment to go on a trip this weekend so just for the trip I bought a bottle of Aberlour A'bunadth batch # 18.

    Good luck on your diet. Because you didn't mention it, at least it sounds like you're not foregoing the bourbon!

    Lol, I wish I can. I am not a bourbon drinker yet but I have a 5-liter oak barrel with bourbon in it. Its been there for 1.5 months and perhaps after the diet I can start sampling it.

    Signatory 9yo Peaty Bunnahavain, from Binnys. An intense, buttery dram, with tons of peat and a good deal of character....

    BenRiach Origine Islay Malt 10 Years.

    It's peaty and briny, like an Islay malt should, but on the lighter side. I don't get smoke like in an Ardbeg or a Lagavulin. I think this would make a good introductory Islay whisky. The finish lingers surprisingly, considering that the flavor profile is light and straightforward.

    I think I got this a couple years back out of a close-out bin for under $20, so I can't complain.

    I don't think BenRiach is an Islay distillery, so to be honest I don't know if this is really an Islay, or merely in the style of Islay.
