    I love that stuff. Get this; the 15-year-old sold for $68 in Ontario. Kind of pricey, but still affordable. As of about two weeks ago, the price got jacked up to about $95! Can you believe it?

    I know it gets old hearing me whine about prices, but come on! That's almost $20 a bottle!

    I'm just telling you what I tasted, man. With my eyes closed, I would tell you it tasted like it had a touch of sherry.

    I've been trying single malt Scotches this fall for the first time and blowing my budget. Ardbeg 10, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Dalwhinnie 15, Glenmorangie 10, Glenfiddich 15 Solera, Dalmore 12, and McClelland's Single Malt Islay. The Ardbeg and Dalwhinnie are wonderful but pricey. The inexpensive McClelland's was a pleasant surprise. Next I'm going to try Scapa 14 and Highland Park 12 to get a taste of the Orkney's.

    Welcome to your new addiction . I'm sure you're like Scapa and Highland Park.

    I opened a bottle of tequila we bought in Mexico last year. Its very smooth with that unmistakable agave aftertaste. Its pretty good for sipping tequila.

    Dalmore 12. Can I consider it medicinal? I've had a headache all day.

    I had the misfortune of trying a 22 year old Hart Brothers bottling of Bowmore. God awfull. I think some critter must of died in the cask. Greenish in color and a burnt coffee kinda flavor....if it could be called flavor. Stay clear of this one. Also got to try a 12 year old ( anniversary) Ardmore from the distillery. Absolute delight to drink. Nice and fat , very pleasant dramming.

    Brad, I agree. Wasn't impressed with the Dalmore 12. It didn't give me a headache, though.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I happened to wake up from some serious reading of this enduring thread to discover I had a dram of Aberlour 16 Double Cask Matured in a nice glass, partially emptied. This dram fits nicely into the floral-fruity category but it has some strong oak structure that dominates the palate. Its like a fresh baked raisen oatmeal cookie with honey served out of the oven on an oak plank. Hmmm....better pour another dram to verify that.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.
