A very healthy pour (close to three onces) and it only cost 6.75.
    You can't go wrong with a nice pour of JWB!! I had a few huge pours last weekend at a wedding. Its a very good blend. I was getting a lot of black licorice from it last time, yum!

    Glenmorangie 10 yr. Light yet luscious. Sweet yet dry. Wonderful balance. Perfect on a warm summer evening.

    I'll second this one.

    Glenmorangie is the ultimate "finesse" scotch. And you need to develop a good feel for this particular expression before you can fully appreciate the wood finish series.

    Are the wood finishes worth checking out? Which would you recommend?

    My personal favorite was the Madeira finish, which has been, unfortunately, discontinued. Prominent tasting notes were butter toffee and orange zest, in my experience...

    I will soon begin the process of SLO'ing a bottle of LaSanta (Sherry finish) through the state store. I'll let you know what I think of it in due time.

    The former lineup consisted of the following:

    - 10-year American Oak
    - 12-year Sherry Wood
    - 12-year Madeira Wood
    - 12-year Port Wood
    - 12-year Burgundy Wood
    - 18-year American Oak



    The new lineup consists of the following:

    - Glenmorangie 10-year American Oak
    - LaSanta (12-year Sherry finish)
    - Quinta Ruban (12-year Port finish)
    - Nectar D'or (12-year Sauternes finish)
    - Glenmorangie 18-year (15yr American, 3yr Spanish)
    - Glenmorangie 25-year

    Sipping on some Cragganmore 12. What a fantastic nose...the bottle is nearly empty. Time to buy some more.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Stopped by the store today for some scotch...came home with a 1.75 of King George IV from 1993 Schenley, Royal Jubilee to back up my opened bottle, and Inverarity 10 Speyside.

    So far, the RJ has been good...the KG is not as good.

    Does anyone have an opinion on the Inverarity 10? Got it for under $25, thought it was a good deal. Guess I'll find out? It doesn't say exactly where it was distilled....I read somewhere that it was Linkwood. Is that info correct?

    Regards,

    Of the lighter Speysides I've had, I have to admit that this one is the best. I really wish DiaGeo would release some older expressions...

    Well, there ain't many heavy Speysides, especially that are widely available. I agree on Diageo: even the Distiller's Editions are not much older than the standard bottlings (if at all).
