    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Spice Tree Malt Scotch Whisky, the current release. It has an appealing flavour, peat-accented with notes of orange and spice, and a pillow-soft body and texture. Some French wood is used in the finishing stage. Not to be missed and a bargain IMO.

    Agreed. It has a dirty taste to it.

    I decided as good as the OGD BiB was tasting, what I really wanted was a nice, Toffee, butterscotchy Scotch. So... Cragganmore 12 is filling the need/want nicely.

    ... Talk dirty to me! LOL!

    But, yeah, Compass Box releases some amazing whiskies!

    What do you guys think about the lowland whisky, Auchentoshan? I saw a great deal on Auchentoshan yesterday and nearly pulled the trigger but thought I'd research it a bit before making the purchase.

    My favorite Auchentoshan is the Three Wood. It's matured in Bourbon, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks.

    The Classic Auchentoshan is light and crisp like an Irish. It's good, but I definitely prefer the Three Wood.

    Thanks for the info. I found the standard expression for $28 and couldn't believe the price, so I think I'll grab it first and then pick up the Three Wood to do a side-by-side.

    I'm starting the evening with some Balvenie Signature. This will be followed by a Signatory bottling of Cragganmore. Then, probably some American whiskeys, but maybe Glenfarclas 105.

    Best,

    Just opened a Gooderham & Worts Small Batch #4. Like a Glengoyne with spice and a peppery finish, nice!

    have fun,

    Popped the cork on a Glen Garioch 8 year old at 40% ABV. Nice looking bottle art. I wasn't expecting much from an 8 year old but was pleasantly surprised by a nicely balanced nose and palate that was well developed. The oak tannins were crisp but not dominating the nice blend of honey, citrus, heather, roasted cereal and a little white pepper at the finish.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.
