    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Was all set to pour some bourbon when a friend dropped by unexpectedly with a bottle of Powers 12 so we headed straight for that, followed by some Connemara Peated Single Malt and a few scotch ales. A great evening of spirits, craic and Irish tunes!

    Thanks for the info! They had a lineup of at least 7 different offerings at the duty free and this was the only expression with the label in English so I assumed it had to be available outside of Sweden.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Last night decided on a pour of WTRB. I thought I read somewhere on here that it's Jimmy Russell's favorite. It wasn't mine ... that spot is held right now by Kentucky Spirit as offered and especially a barrel pick we have available in Tallahassee. I followed that with a healthy pour of FR Marriage. This from the bottom of the bottle that had been on the bar for most of a year. This blew me away! A wonderful bourbon! Is this released every year? I think the one bottle they have left is from before 2012. I'll grab that one today.

    Opened a new bottle of Balvenie Tun 1401 last night. This is batch 6.

    Have you had the 3? If so, how do they compare to each other?

    Yeah, I finished a bottle of Batch 3 last week. Unfortunately, I don't have any left to make a direct comparison, but this one seems different. Great nose, but it definitely is less sweet, a "woodier" flavor, although not unpleasant. And I've never really understood when people picked up on a leather when tasting whisky until now. It's quite nice.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Got an opportunity to try a taste of the Amrut Fusion and the new Two Continents, Batch #2, today. The Fusion was OK, a bit of peat but perhaps a hair rougher than I expected given the rave reviews it seems to have had. The Two Continents on the other hand was a real beauty! I would buy one if I could find it. And I am not that much of a scotch drinker.

    Interesting. I have a bottle of the batch 3 that I'm saving (it's currently my most expensive bottle so I need some good excuse to open it) and was wondering about getting a bottle of batch 6 while it is still available. Would you recommend it?

    I would recommend it if you open up that Batch #3 and post a picture here:

    I enjoyed a wee dram of Glenfarclas 30 straight from the bottle, as per Trey's link above.
