    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I'm onto my last glass of Berry's Own Selection Dalmore 1997. Interesting stuff. Very clean, toasty, malty. A pure-tasting malt. Light tropical fruit, some bitter oak in the finish.

    I've had an unopened bottle of Macallan Cask Strength on the shelf for a while, so I decided last night I'd compare it against the open bottle of Macallan 12 I had.

    I'd be curious to hear what anybody else has to say, but the Cask Strength didn't significantly impress me. I'll have to revisit the whisky to see if it was just and off night for me.

    Had a large whiskey sour made of The Famous Grouse last night. I noticed I had 4 1.75 liter bottles of Famous Grouse in my stash so it was time to start using up some of this to make room for others. As much as I love Teacher's I have to admit that Famous Grouse is very drinkable mixed and usually can be found at great bargain!

    Ardbeg 10 is going down real nice on this crisp, Autumn-like evening.

    Just conducted a head-to-head: Lagavulin 16 vs. Longrow CV. It's interesting how different a whisky can taste when you have something to compare it to. Lagavulin showed salty notes very reminiscent of crisp bacon that I had never noticed before. It also showed deep iodine notes beneath rich sweetness.

    Longrow CV fared very well with pronounced smoke and lovely sweetness. Much lighter than Lagavulin but still substantial in flavour.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I had some Jura 16yr the other night while having dinner. I was very disappointed as it tasted very strong of vanilla. I assume it was mostly first-fill bourbon barrels because that is what it reminded me of.

    Were my tastebuds messed up by the food, or are my tasting impressions correct?

    Thanks, Rene'

    Enjoying a Redbreast 12 year. It's been some time since I've poured from this bottle. Shame on me....it's a great Irish.

    It's the BEST Irish!
