    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Joe, I appreciate your support, but being a Presbyterian pastor (those Scottish roots...), my predilection for distilled spirits is sort of unavoidable.

    I had a Lagavulin 16 a few days ago... Not bad at all. But not splendid. It's just a matter of taste, of course, but I much prefer Ardbeg. I'd take the Ug and the ten year over the Lag 16.

    Finally, speaking of Springbank, I saw it on the back of a bar when my wife and I went out for a drink the other night. I was shocked at how flavorful and deep it was. I was really wowed. Then I figured out why. The majority of the bottle was obscured, and I assumed and expected it was the 10. But it was the 15. Really great stuff.

    Unfortunately, not only did my palate detect the difference, but my wallet did, too.

    Rather than pick the Laga 16 or the Ardbeg Uigie - go for the Lagavulin Distillers edition! All the sweet peaty goodness of Lag 16, with a huge (Pedro Ximinez) Sherry finish. Mmmm.. although pricier than either of the original options by $20-$30.

    Laphroaig Triple Wood is another candidate - and at the lower end of the price spectrum - usually around $60 locally here in Dallas. Not as sherried as Uigie, but I really prefer the Laphroaig peat to most others.

    Sadly, I'd not be able to choose if it meant leaving one or the other out.

    Sprinbank/Longrow are also amazing drams. Tonight, however, it's going to be McCarthy's Oregon Peated Single Malt. 3 years young, and a stunner!

    Caol Ila Cask Strength for me tonight, definitely has some proof to it, but damn tasty in many ways.

    I'm having the last couple of pours of Dalmore 12. I don't think I'll be replacing this one.

    Glenmorangie Classic 10 and Springbank 10 tonight. Both just superb. The Glenmorangie really surpised me as I was not expecting such complexity.

    Yeah, it's hard to go wrong with any Glenmorangie. In fact, you've persuaded me to open my bottle of standard 10 year.
