    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Highland Park 18 last night while watching a good movie. That dram is exquisite!

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Had a dalwhinnie 15 last night, still trying to find my legs with scotch as I wasn't too impressed again.
    The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.

    Glenfiddich 12. Really, not bad for 35 bucks.

    Come on... share. What's it taste like? The oldest Laphroaig I've tasted was 15 year old... and it was excellent. I would assume it has lost quite a bit of it's peat bite?

    It's mellower than its younger siblings, but nicely balanced. It has been replaced by a 25 year old, which is also nice, but bolder.

    I did a review of it 6 years ago here if you want to read it.

    Tonight's dram is Campbeltowm Loch 30 and the previously released (and reviewed) 25. The 25 has a slight edge.

    Eagle Rare 17. I actually had it in a reidel chardonnay stemless glass. I actually like the glass -- it didn't concentrate the nose too much. IMO snifters with bourbon can just bowl you over with the alcohol in the nose. You gotta let it breathe out a bit, but it should still taper inwards.

    Anyway, I killed the bottle. Good thing I have an emergency backup.

    Care to explain how this is a foreign whiskey?

    Decided to skip the bourbon tonight and go with a Aberlour a'bunadh. I love the Sherry influence at cask strength. It's a chewy, terrific dram.
