    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Redbreast 12. In a wine glass my parents brought back from the Rockport Festival of Wines.

    If the whiskey was a little lighter in color, I could pass it off as white wine at one of the many get-togethers my wife arranges.

    Balvenie 12, DoubleWood, and Balvenie 15, after some rye and ginger.

    The DoubleWood has a sweet smoothness, with a little spice at the end, while the 15 is rich, complex, and spicy throughout.

    I had some Highland 12 at the bar.

    Not bad, for $40 a bottle I could see myself buying some of this.

    Sure, Highland Park 12 is great.

    I'm having some of my Christmas present: Lagavulin 12-year-old cask strength. Dayum, this is some hot, sweet, smoky, spicy stuff!

    Good night for drinks: Stronachie 12, Lagavulin 12, The Yamazaki 12, anCnoc 12, and a double of Black Bush. Starting to feel it now. I'll probably finish off with a wee dram of Talisker 18.

    Had a wee- dram of Octomore today. Incredibly easy drinking at 63.5%, and not as over the top as I thought it was gonna be. Very pleasant.

    I managed to pick up two very nice, moderately-peated whiskies in the past few weeks.

    The first is Highland Park 12. Nice, rich, and full, but a bit immature, IMHO. It could definitely use some more oak. I would love to try the 15-year or 18-year. Big Sherry Butts + Cold Orcadian Weather = Slow Maturation. Regardless, I enjoyed its mouth-filling, smokey character and hint of nuttiness from the Spanish Oak maturation.

    I also managed to pick up a bottle of Ardmore Traditional Oak. It is aged in American Oak, then finished in Quarter Casks. It is probably no more than 8 years old, but its maturity belies its years, thanks to that Quarter Cask finishing. Peating level is similar to that of Highland Park or Talisker, but this particular spirit is not very sweet-- I had to look really hard to find a biscuity sweetness near the finish, like a sugar cookie made from a low-sugar recipe. Overall, very interesting.
