    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Right now, I'm taking YET ANOTHER crack at my Glenmorangie Original 10-year. I know, I'm starting to sound like a broken record...

    But something is different this time...

    THIS time, I'm drinking it out of my brand-spanking-new Glencairn Malt Whisky glasses!

    Something with aromatic complexity was needed to see if these things really work.

    They do. I've gotten more aromas that I have not previously identified in my MANY previous tastings-- white pepper, clove, and a dash of almonds. The vanilla was present before, but seems significantly-amplified now. And the alcohol vapors are much less cloying than they used to be.

    Yeah, the Glencairn is a must-have. Perfect shape and size.

    At about the half way point of the bottle of Bushmills 10, I began to tire of it and I let it sit around a couple of months. But now I'm loving it when thrown in with some scotches for some reason. I seem to like the flavors as a contrast but not as much on their own.

    I think I've seen Longmorn somewhere around here. It sounds like it's worth picking up.

    Better do it soon, because the distillery stopped making the 15-year-old. It has been replaced with a 16-year-old version, which is almost twice the price and reportedly not as good.

    Just cracked a Laphroaig 10. Truly one of the great whiskys of the world.

    Cheers!

    I'm having my first glass of Tullamore Dew. Not yet sure what to make of it. Like standard Jameson, it has very little flavour. I agree with their website about the hints of lemon and charred wood. It's not unpleasant, though. Good if you're in the mood for something ultra-mild. It would probably be very nice in coffee.

    I like it with a splash of 7UP, myself. Also, it makes a good Dry Manhattan (splash of Dry Vermouth, garnish with a lemon twist).

    Try John Power's Gold Label, Michael Collins, Feckin', or Kilbeggan. They all have more pot still character-- more barley, more body.

    Another Scotch night.

    HP 12, then HP 18, then Talisker 18. Not sure about my favorite, although the first and last one both made a strong impression. HP 18 is good as well, but lacks the punch of the other two.
