    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Jura 10-year. This whisky definitely has a maritime character to it, kinda like a Coastal Highland malt.

    Definitely some vanilla and coconut, with a hint of seaweed and whisper of salt. Seems appropriate for the dreary weather we've been seeing lately. Not much in the way of Peat in this expression, although there are other expressions in their series that are, indeed, moderately-peated.

    Well I'm out of Laphroaig.

    I guess Johnnie Walker Green will have to do tonight...

    Cold and rainy last night, so Caol Ila 12 made an appearance and warmed the body and soul. Really terrific whiskey and greatly underappreciated, in my book.

    Are we talking Clynelish or Old Pulteney? I really enjoy those two but haven't gotten around to springing for the Jura yet.

    I actually had Oban in mind, but, of the two you mentioned, I would go with Clynelish. Old Pulteney, at least to me, has more of a slightly-peated character.

    Springbank 10. This is a really good one. Lot's of different things going on here. Some barnyard flavors mixed with a hint of smoke and nice thick mouthfeel.

    Oban was my first distillery tour many years ago. It was a strange experience rolling out of bed at the B&B, eating a hearty Scottish breakfast and then sampling one whisky after another on the tour, which commenced at 10 a.m. We were all fairly well-oiled before noon and that put an end to our plan to move on to Fort William that day. But it sure was fun!

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I'm enjoying some 21 YO Littlemill from a barrel picked by K&L Wines. Although I'd not had any whiskey from Littlemill, I've liked most of the K&L selections and I figured, what the hell -- I'll try something new. I'm glad I did. It reminds me of Clynelish, but with a bit more weight. There's nice tropical fruit flavors -- especially coconut -- and some peppery/brininess. Not much, if anything, in the way of peat but that's fine. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a scalpel not a sledgehammer.
