    Yamazaki 12

    Tasty as ever.

    Put it here because it's a lost soul on these boards.

    Love the Yamazaki. Discovered it last year and am really impressed with it. The next one I want to pick up is the Hibiki 12 year.

    Enjoyed a single dram of Balvenie 15 year Singularity #66; a single barrel done my Julio's. One of my favorite Scotch whisky.

    Also think about trying Yoichi 10 year old. It is much different than Yamazaki. I'd be hard-pressed to say which I enjoyed more.

    Enjoying my first pour from Amrut Fusion. Very nice so far. I have a bad cold (So I probably should have waited to open it) but right now the finish sort of reminds me of a peatier, smokier, fuller flavored Glenlivet Nadurra. I may take all this back later though.

    Cheers!

    With all of the talk on Canadian Whiskies, lately, I decided to pull out a couple of dusty Canadian Clubs that I've picked up over the years. CC 100 proof and CC Classic 12 year c. late '80's. The 12 year is wonderfully caramelly and mapley. Yummy.

    Hey Boss, may I offer for consideration that a "Canadian Whiskey" section be added to the site as a permanent fixture?

    I'd drink to that. Say, how is that 100 proof?

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    The Hibiki 12 is finally being stocked in Atlanta, so I picked up a bottle yesterday at Mac's and compared it to the Hibiki 17, which is just about my favorite blended whisky (of any type).

    Both are very relaxed blends. Citrus fruit and oak are well balanced. Silky. Sweet. You can definitely tell the age difference. The 12 has a very nice, long and slightly spicy finish, and the fact that it is finshed in plum liqueur casks is very evident.

    Love 'em both.
