    Kilchoman Sherried (Black label)

    Color: Straw yellow with a reddish tint.

    Nose: A good dose of peat smoke, iodine, and wet tree bark. Notes of ripe, red raspberries and grapes elevate from the glass.

    Taste: A quick iodine/Methylate note on entry and then young, earthy, peat erupts on the palate. Subsides rather quickly and is replaced with a sweet wine character that adds layers to this dram.

    Finish: Smokey and sweet with a soft berry presence including elderberry and black berries. Moderate in length.

    Rating: This is a very complex whisky with lots of layers and good depth. It's age does reveal itself as its youthfulness cannot be missed. Nevertheless, it is most enjoyable and one I'd gladly keep on the shelf. Score is an 87.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I opened a bottle of Balvenie Tun 1401 (Batch 3) to celebrate the (101yr) life of my Gong-Gong (maternal grandfather). He passed this morning in his sleep and will be missed dearly - I am eternally grateful for his love and legacy.

    Buck, I tend to enjoy the CS over the Quarter Cask, just slightly, but of course enjoy both anytime, anywhere.
    Had a little Ardbeg Corry tonight to celebrate the Tigers pulling even with them Socks. Its going to be a fun 10 days.

    Like you said, you can't go wrong either way. Laphroaig is simply a heavenly pour. Last night I went with HP12 and look forward to the HP18 tonight.

    HP18 - oh the good stuff!
    Got to get me a bottle - but @ $125/bottle tough to pull the trigger.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Going back to Wiser's Legacy for the second night in a row, not often where I do a back to back of the same. I'm really starting to enjoy this one, I can see it becoming a regular in the cabinet. Classic rye taste, reminds me a bit of Saz Jr in that area.

    Aside from th aged ryes, I'd put this ahead of most on the market. I still might give the nod to the 4-5yr Willet's, but this holds it's own. And easier to find, at least form what I've seen.

    An excellent whisky to celebrate an epic long life.

    I miss drinking with my grandfather-in-law. He was a Glenmorangie man, and we buried him with his half drunk bottle in the casket.
