    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Just a point of reference for the McClelland brands.

    McClelland’s Highland - 5 year old Glen Garioch
    McClelland’s Highland Sherry Finished 12 - 12 year old Glen Garioch
    McClelland’s Highland 16 - 16 year old Glen Garioch
    McClelland’s Islay - 5 year old Bowmore
    McClelland’s Lowland - 5 year old Auchentoshan
    McClelland’s Speyside - 5 year old Unknown distillery, although Suntory who owns the Morrison-Bowmore Group does own part of The Macallan and that is the most likely source.

    I only know of the Islay, Highlands and Lowlands because thats what the chain liquor store (Specs) carries. I like to get my hand on the Sherry Finished and the Glen Garioch.

    You'd be far better off buying some Dalmore 12 rather then the McCelland's Highland Sherry. I've had it and it isn't that great.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Thanks for the reference AVB!!
    I do like Bowmore Legend so I would think the McClelland Islay might be the same? A good replacement for the Legend since its apparently going away. How does the Lowland stack up to Auchentoshan Select? The Select is an excellent buy!

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    The Legend is around 8 yo and the McClelland version is only 5 so there are going to be some differences. It can be a substitute but how suitable it is you'll have to decide. The Auchentoshan Select is better IMO then the McClelland but again you have age differences and they certainly weren't made to directly compete with each other.

    Does anybody know who owns The Dalmore?

    They've been tinkering with their website this past year. I checked it out in what must have been February or March, and the website only announced that The Dalmore is undergoing some changes.

    Now in September, that website has yet to change. The suspense has me so wound-up that I am like to start pulling out my hair!!!!!

    It was that clean bottle containing an amber-hued liquid with what appeared to be a solid pewter Elk head on the front, shown for a grand total of 2 seconds in the Flash animation, that has me going...



    I can't take it any more!!!!!

    Whyte & Mackay own Dalmore along with Isle of Jura Single Malt and Fettercairn Single Malt and is in turn is owned by the UB group of India.

    The Dalmore 12 is an excellent whisky and a very good value!

    So is their Cigar Malt, 21-year, and Stillman's Dram 28-year. All of which are sold at VERY reasonable prices!
