    Hard to beat Redbreast 12. It truly is outstanding and unique, even among Irish whiskies.

    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?
    Well, maybe both of our tastebuds are off. I do not care for Jura at all, though I've tried it three times.

    But then, I'm a Laphroaig/Lagavulin/Talisker/Ardbeg fan--not all at once, of course, but I love the peaty, smoky, deep, rich flavors they offer. Guess my tastebuds are just fine, because put any of those side-by-side with a Jura and Jura loses every time! Maybe I'm just prejudiced, and maybe your tastebuds are just fine, too.

    Mmmm . . . I feel a wee dram calling me!

    The Amrut was great. we put it up with the Laph 18.... but not as good as the Glan Grant 36 or the Springbank 12/100.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I'm having an early dram of Glen Garioch 12 single Highland malt. This is the new version, 48%, non-chillfiltered. According to the website they have added first-fill sherry to the cask selection.

    The nose is very interesting, with raisin and strong herbal notes. On the palate it is rich and malty with lively ripe fruit, becoming nice and bitter with some balancing cocoa and coffee. Long, fruity finish.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Was visiting a friend and enjoyed some sample drams of:

    Macallan 25 year Gran Reserva
    Macallan 15 year
    Springbank 10, 12 and 30 year
    Balvenie 12 year Founders Reserve
    Anchentoshan 21 year
    Royal Lochnager Selected Reserve

    My fav was the Royal Lochnager which contained a blend of Scotch up to 45 years old. Rich and delicious.
