    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    If you like Irish whiskey can't go wrong with Jameson Gold. I enjoy most of the Jameson line but I have to order all but the regular Jameson which is a pain as shipping eats my lunch.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Caol Ila 8 year old "unpeated style", also a Cask Strength at a whopping 64.9% alc/vol. Excellent stuff, still keeps that Caol Ila thang, and to me, still keeps more of that Islay thang than Bowmore- even without the peat.

    The nose is pretty hot straight out of the bottle. Cut to about 50% alc/vol and 10 minutes to breathe and ...

    I don't see it written, but as pale as this is and the way it clouds up with water, I'd guess this is non-chill filtered and no caramel coloring added.

    MMMMM

    I opened my Redbreast 15 just now. It is always so difficult to decide what to open next.

    I am liking it better than the AH Hirsch 20yr sitting beside it

    But I seem to always like Irish Whisky's better. Always takes me back to times with friends in Ireland.

    On the topic of Irish whiskey, I picked up a bottle of Powers Gold Label. Maybe it is due to my having a cold, but so far I'm less than impressed. Maybe I'll enjoy it more when I'm better.

    I hate the term dram, but for the first in a long, long time I am dabbling on the dark side with my first pour of Highland Park 12. It was on sale at a store near me for about $31 OTD, so I figured that was the time to dabble. I'm not going to say I love it by any means, but it is a decent pour and change of pace.

    HP was my "gateway Scotch" - my first introduction to Whisk(e)y of "quality" in general.

    At $31 I'd have bought 5 or more... It's gooooood stuff.

    Sorry, I came from Scotch, and still in my weaker moments prefer it (sipping Laphroaig QC right now - but I did have a Vintage 17 Bourbon earlier as a warm up...)

    I think they're both quite nice. The Corry may be a bit more complex. The "Islay-Gator" is all bandages and bbq for me. Lovely, but closer to a big fat trick pony. I'd take either and be quite happy. Supernova, and their new make are still tops for me. Slainte.
