    I'm curious - how did the Aberlour 16 do compared to the others?

    Of course, there were varying opinions about each whisky. But, in general, the Longmorn was the favorite. The Aberlour 16 was generally the next favored. The opinions - The Longmorn is a very nice multi-layered dram with a high level of complexity. The Aberlour is very smooth with a rich sherry flavor (as expected), but not as complex as the Longmorn. All were very good, but the Glen Moray seemed to be on the bottom of the list for most. The Glenfarclas 21 was very nice, but seemed to fall in about third or fourth.

    I'm not surprised that the Glen Moray finished as an also-ran in this company. But, that said -- and considering price -- I think Glen Moray 12yo is a very fine 'beginner's' single malt. We sell a fair amount of it at my part-time-employing liquor store, and often get customers who 'trade up' afterward, enjoying the genre.

    Longmorn 15 is fantastic. An unbelievable value, as far as singlr malts are concerned.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Last week, I brought a bottle of Lag Cask Strength and a 10 yr Black Bottle on a cruise. By the time I came back home, the lag is gone but the Black Bottle still have a couple of dram which I have last night. For some reason, the whisky taste better at home.
