    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    What's your take on Oban, ebo? I haven't had any in years and just noticed my local has it in stock.

    It's been a while since I had it, too. It's kind of a light, floral whisky. More delicate than I remember. It's not a bad dram at all, just a little too pricey for what it is, IMO.

    That about sums it up. Very nice whisky but a bit pricey, as you said. Oban's distillery was the first one I ever toured and I have a soft spot for the stuff but you can do better for the price.

    A nice dram of Highland Park 12. As much as I love the 18, I'm not sure that I don't think the 12 is better.

    Just starting to dabble in the Darkside really, and tonight it's Lagavulin 16s turn. Mercy. This is simply streets ahead of the Laphroiag QC I had tried earlier, and I adore that whisky. Just every kind of smoke imaginable on the Lag, but sweet and spicy. Briny too. Tremendous finish with smoke for days. So damned good on this cold Winter evening.
