    Hoarding... nope.... but I did find a place locally that has a few. so I don't know if it is an older bottling or a newer release.

    And you nailed it !!!! Very closed ay first.... I didn't add any water, but I did let it sit for about 20 minutes and it was fantastic. I may go back and get another.



    *EDIT* I just saw that it was bottled on 9-20-06....

    Bladnoch 16 is the dram of the evening. An old Sheep label one at that.

    Enjoyed a nice dram of Bowmore Dusk while watching the PGA Championship this afternoon. Finished in Bordueaux wine casks, the characteristic Bowmore smokiness combines nicely with the wine flavors. Wish I had another bottle. I picked this one up last year at Binny's during there Scotch clearance sale for only $30..what a deal that was!

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I recently sampled some Tullamore Dew at a Beer, Bourbon and BBQ festival. So a few days ago I saw it in my local ABC and bought a bottle. I found it to be rather pleasant given it's an 80 proofer. Floral/vanilla nose with a semi-sweet taste with hints of honey, and a quick but pleasant sweet finish as well.

    I couldn't see drinking several pours of this in an evening given how sweet it is. However, I think this would make a nice occassional after dinner pour, or one to enjoy a cigar with.

    Last year it was September 1 - October 31. I don't know if they have one every year.

    I was in the Chicago area last September. In addition to taking advantage of the Scotch clearance sale, I also attended a Scotch tasting at Binny's Naperville store. They had a good selection of single malt Scotch to sample, and it was a pretty good deal at $25 w/ Binny's card. Looks like they have a tasting planned again at the Naperville store on September 3: http://www.binnys.com/events/

    Having a dram of Macallan 12. I forgot I had a bottle stashed away. The sweet, sherry and toffee is a nice change of pace from the Islays I usually drink.

    Enjoying a warm-weather dram of Kellan Irish Whiskey (distilled by Cooley), with its sweet toffee notes and an almost cider-y sweetness.

    Following that with Glenmorangie LaSanta, with its initial whiff of orange zest, followed by dates, figs, and pecans. I think I detect a hint of cacao in the finish...

    If you like it you might as well grab another to hang onto, since it was a release of fewer than 1,000 bottles if I recall correctly. There can't be many left.
