    What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Yes 45. Stand corrected. Still good stuff.

    I'm really drinking on the cheap tonight. Standard Cutty Sark blend. It really isn't that terrible. It has a nice peppery finish.

    I like Cutty, always have, that blend is getting on close to 100 years now of continuous production which is no mean feat.

    Bruichladdich The Laddie Twenty Two Unpeated Islay and Binny's Cask Highland Park 25 from 1981. The Laddie could easily go another 22 years...has refined hints of honey, citrus and brine combined with finesse to create a subtle, elegant and very long lasting whisky. There was some criticsm of the HP when it was released in 2007 but a powerhouse that tastes great now. Thank you Mr. Maloney.

    Cutty Sark is a good blend, it's a good expression of the lighter side of Scotch whisky. Check out Dewar's and Ballantine, too, solid stuff. All these drinks make by the way an excellent Scotch Mist - for some reason it never tastes right to me with a single malt.

    Cutty 12 is a very solid whisky. I enjoy Dewers 12, also. The only Ballentine's I've ever had was the standard blend. I'd like to try the older stuff.

    Had a friend who liked Balentines 12 and we shared a good bit of it at his house. One Summer we went through the 12s (Balentines, Cutty, Dewars, Buchanan,Teachers and a few others I don't recall) as a part of the weekly tastings I hosted. That experience was part of what led me away from Single Malts.

    The 12's will be very good but try regular Cutty Sark, it has a pure, clean distillery character - but not bland - that is one side of the Scotch equation.

    I still prefer Single Malts, but I have nothing against a good blend. I like blends when I'm just in the mood to sit down in front of the TV and have a Scotch.

    That it has Gary, and the years have not diminished it's appeal.
