    Joe really needs a nickname...Something like "The Gate Keeper", or "The Key Master".

    I could totally see him going by either of those names! Wizard of Whisk(e)y could also work.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Thankfully, the weather is a bit cooler here ... so I went back to the Benromach 10. It reminds me a bit of a Bowmore - I'm really starting to like the combination of peat smoke and sherry influence. I'm still trying to work my way towards Lagavulin and Laphroaig again (I really didn't like that medicinal/iodine note I got), so maybe when the snow flies again those two may be more to my liking.

    Somewhere else here on the boards there was a discussion of mouthfeel, and how SMS generally speaking is fuller/creamier on the palate - I've been paying more attention to that lately as I've gone back and forth with SMS, bourbon and rye, and I do agree - SMS seems to have keep a fuller mouthfeel at the lower alcohol contents (40% and 43%) than bourbon.

    Like the mythical Leprechaun.....it's bounty is mighty while within your grasps. But you must never take your eyes off it or the magic will disappear.

    Smart man!

    Further testing under way with a small pour of JW Green Label - too bad this is being discontinued. Very creamy, medium to full-bodied. Malty, citrusy, and just a hint of smoke and pepper on the finish. Maybe I'll keep the bottle when it is empty and make my own JW Green down the road ...

    A Mannochmore 28yo 1982 52.1% Bladnoch Forum, a nice dram that has really improved after the bottle has been open for a month or so. It was a nice gift from Miroslaw from whisky-blog.pl who paid me a visit when he and his family was visiting Legoland
