    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Discovered I still had a very healthy pour of Balvenie 15 left. So glad to find it.
    What a fantastic pour, my desert island SMS.

    Cheers!

    A pour of Glenfiddich 10 from the late 60's early 70's...wow, is the 12 this fruity? I am in Awe of this bottle!

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    It was my birthday the other day and I enjoyed some of a 50 yo Glenlivet (D1948 - B1998) that I had opened for my 50th a few years ago. Damn good stuff.

    I just picked up one of these with a 1968 tax stamp on it. You "review" gives me something to look forward too.

    Wow, how does it compare to a standard bottling like, say, an 18 year old?

    It doesn't compare really. Some family resemblence perhaps but a totally different beasty.

    I wrote at the time,"The taste is when the wood comes out but in an unexpected way. This scotch sat in a bourbon cask for so long the imprint of the charred oak cask and bourbon highlights integrate themselves with the highland malt of The Glenlivet. I've never experienced anything quite like this in another reasonably aged scotch."

    Following up Highland Park 12 with Glenkinchie Distillers Edition. Such a difference between these malts! Highland Park was thick and rich with luxurious fruit and spice and smoke, whereas Glenkinchie is dry and delicate. Both are absolutely outstanding.

    Just cracked a MacCelland Islay - produced by Bowmore
    Its kind of like a 2nd barrell or lower tier to the top level Bowmore - but good stuff.
    Best part its 1/2 the price so great price to value/quality.
    I love Bowmore and always have a bottle on hand but like most single malts - getting awfully pricey.

    I also think the McClellands Islay is an outstanding value. It has some smoke, peat, and iodine. Very easy sipping.
