    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Green Spot Irish Whiskey. Delicate yet full of flavor. Great example of a pure pot still Irish.

    Yes indeed. My friend just came back from Ireland this week with two bottles of Green Spot for me and I'm happy as can be. Off to Binny's to pick up some Guinness FES as an accompaniment for tonight's relaxation.

    Crown Royal Limited Edition. A very pleasant sipping blend that falls somewhere between rye and rum in its flavour profile.

    Interesting how direct comparison brings out hidden characteristics. After finishing a glass of Crown Royal LE, I poured a bit of Sazerac rye and was immediately struck by intense peppermint notes which were not obvious when tasting the rye alone.

    While rooting around the open bottle collection last night, I pulled out a bottle I've had sitting around for sometime; '93/'04 Edradour Marsala Finish Cask Strength. This is one of a series of special releases by Edradour. The nose has mild peat, iodine and overtones of the Marsala wine cask. The entry is much more appealing, loads of flavor with a mix of sweet and peat. I'm not a big fan of peat/smoke, but this puppy is delicious. Too bad it's a 500ml bottle. I have another one with the Port finish and I may have to open it up.

    I'm a big fan of Green Spot, too. But right now I'm just finishing an Auchentoshan, ... almonds and chocolate-covered cherries, bitter cocoa, hints of peat and smoke.
    Peace, ... and Hippy Love.

    Amrut Peated. Just picked this up. Very flavourful... it's my first time trying it but it's one of those that tastes like you've been there before. At first the nose reminded me a bit of Ardmore Traditional cask (with more peat of course), but now I'm not so sure. I need more time with this one... getting better as it opens.

    Maybe, it's this whacked weather we're having. So, I decided to change it up from my bourbon train, and go with something different. I reached deep into the cabinet, and out came this Aberlour A'bunadh Batch 18. A very tasty whiskey.

    The batch 18 was my first Aberlour A'. A sherry bomb to be sure and a nice change from bourbon indeed.
