    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Kept it simple last night and had a few Guinness FES's and plenty of Ballantine's Finest. Great blend, in my book.

    I think something drastic happened to this blend a few years ago. Someone I knew bought a bottle 6yrs ago and it was really vile stuff - couldn't drink it. Tried it again 2yrs ago and liked it. Very oily with some sweetness.

    I do like the 17yr and 21yr Ballantines as well but the regular NAS is one of the few bottom-shelf scotches I'm not adverse to.

    First drams (for me and of the bottle) of Ardmore Traditional Cask last night. Pretty tasty stuff as is, but if it improves any with some open bottle time, we might have a real winner here. Especially considering the price..

    I had a few drams tonight - Laphroaig 15, Lagavulin 16, Oban 14. It was a good decision to go with Scotch tonight, all were very enjoyable, but Laph 15 was the star of the show.

    A very under appreciated dram. I really enjoy it.

    I had some Yamazaki 12 and Redbreast 12 at a bar tonight, and finished up with some Bushmills Single Malt at home. First pour I've had of Yamazaki - very good.

    You do have a winner. That stuff is dynamite for the price and goes over well with all my friends. Stock up!
