    It was fine but I don't think I would go so far as to mix them. Then again...

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I'm a late comer to Jameson 12 but had some yesterday at a friend's house and really enjoyed it. My expectation was a somewhat fuller flavored version of the standard Jameson but, in fact, it has a unique character all of its own that was truly excellent. I'll be buying my own bottle as we get closer to St. Patrick's Day.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    While in New Mexico I had the chance to try J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (Lagavulin Whisky Cask). Interesting to try, definitely had Lagavulin flavoring. Way too sweet a beer though for my tastes (sickly sweet for me). If it had been my choice, I'd have probably aged some Guinness Extra Stout in the Lagavulin casks.

    Sorry about the image below, didn't work out and I can't seem to get rid of the image there.

    Large pour of Clynelish 14. Lovely, lingering finish on this one.

    Last night I had a JWB followed by a final 1/4 pour from my Laph QC mixed with 3/4 Caol Ila 12. For some reason this pairing didn't work well. Could have been an off night because usually the LQC works well in "seasoning" other pours.

    Last night it was Laphroaig 10 CS followed by JW Green (followed later by a EWSB 2000 nightcap).

    I'm just getting my nose into my first-ever glass of Springbank 12 year old cask strength. Lovely aroma so far.

    Finished the last of a bottle of Laphroaig 10 this weekend. One of my favorite, entry-level Scotches.

    Tonight, a generous pour of Glenlivet 15 French Oak. Have to have the sweet tooth to enjoy this stuff. Real shame that it's bottled at a measly 40%.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Just picked up the Bowmore 10 Tempest 112 proof.

    Initial nose: Alcohol. After a few minutes opening up it has turned to toasted apple pie with cinnamon. Also getting some fresh tobacco shop smells.

    Taste: Initial heat slowly turning into smooth fruit (green apples, peaches, and maybe a bit of melon) with surprisingly mellow peat and smoke (I like/want peat and smoke!).

    Finish: Somewhat short to medium in length sweetness, with lasting heat as it departs.

    A nice dram with a hint of that curious fruitiness that I always appreciate from Bowmore (specifically as found in the 17 yr). Not quite what I was expecting but I find myself wanting more now that my glass has emptied.
