    Now that sounds good. Never had it myself but I'm a big Balvenie fan. What were your thoughts on it?

    Honey, vanilla with subtle dried fruits (plum or raisin) & gentle (fall) spices.

    It's not as viscous/oily as say a Bruichladdich but it avoids being watery & astringent.

    There is a nice wisp of smoke to frame the conversation and I find myself going back again and again to study it - it seems as if I find something new every time I pour this wonderful dram.

    I just wished it came at a higher proof.

    Lagavulin 16 ... not a big peated scotch person, and this was a gift from about 10 yrs ago. I've finally made it to the last quarter of the bottle!

    I will say though, maybe, after 10 yrs, it has grown on me a little. For the first time, I got some chocolate on the nose and a good bit on the palate behind all that peat.

    I may never fully understand and appreciate peated whisky, but I can actually say for the first time I'm enjoying this dram (rather than constantly treating it like a learning experience ...)

    Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix. Interesting dram and definitely not the most appropriate title as it is fairly light and fruity. Good Dram though.

    A pour of Nikka Whisky From the Barrel, while grilling up some steaks. The packaging ain't much. Just a non-descript, little and squatty bottle, but it sure packs a lot of creamy good flavor. I've not delved much into Japanese whiskies, but this Nikka is very impressive.

    If you haven't already done so, I'd seek out Yamazaki 12 and give it a spin. That's a very fine whisky at an affordable price. To a person, everyone that's sampled it at my house has been pleasantly surprised, if not downright impressed, by its quality.
