    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I have a dusty bottle of Dalmore (with the yellowish label) in my cupboard. I too find it pretty lackluster and dull, with a weird bitter note I can't quite put my finger on. I saved it for toddys and butterscotches in the winter months.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    In the years before he passed, my dad always had a bottle of Dalmore Cigar Malt in the house. It was his favorite scotch. I remember really enjoying it, too, on those days when we decided to change it up from bourbon/beer.

    Started out with the Singleton of Glendullan, which I'm enjoying more with each glass. Unchallenging but exceedingly pleasant.

    Now I'm on to Glen Garioch 12, one of the stranger Scotches I've tasted. Olives, anyone?

    Kilchoman. Holy smoke! And tar, and iodine, and black licorice.

    As you said, the Singleton isn't terribly complex but I really enjoy it each and every time I drink it. Glen Garioch is one I've never managed to get my hands on though.

    If you buy the McClelland's Highland you are really getting 5 yo Glen Garioch.

    I got to try Talisker Limited Edition cask strength yesterday. It was fantastic. Silky-smooth and fairly subtle by Talisker standards but still with nice smoke and creamy vanilla-toffee.

    Where did you try that? Not an LCBO tasting table? I'd travel a bit for that.

    Tonight I'm starting with some HP12. A classic.

    No, it is only available at the distillery. A friend brought it back from Scotland.
