    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Lucky enough to be enjoying the new Lagavulin 17 year old D.E. Just a fantastic dram.

    Damn, that must be nice. How does it compare to the 16, or the 12 if you've tried it?

    Right now I'm enjoying some Alberta Premium 25 year old rye. Best whisky for under $30, hands down. I swear this bottle is different than others I've had. It's more spicy with less toffee flavour. Deep wood notes, as expected.

    I have not had the 12. I love the 16, but found this to be a bit nicer. A touch fatter and deeper. I think I'll have to do a side by side and report back.

    Well, I've got both the 16 and the new 17 DE in front of me. They are both quite lovely. The 16 is a touch lighter in appearance. Both are quite clingy on the sides of my glass. The 16 is a tad more aggressive than the 17 on the nose. I'm getting walnuts and caramel from the 16. The 17 is revealing a tad less on the walnut side of things, while giving off some seductive vanilla and honey with less peat than the 16.The 16 is a touch more viscous in the mouth compared to the 17, and the 16 has a longer finish with more of a peat push in the middle. The more I sip, the closer I come to confirming a tie. They both have their own personality and are both great examples of Lagavulin. Now I gotta go track down a 12.

    Thanks for the tasting notes. Sounds like an interesting dram.

    I imagine you will find that the 12 is a different beast entirely...

    What is the date on the new Distillers Edition? I'm curious as to whether it is the same as the one currently available in these parts. My wife gave me money to purchase one nice bottle for Christmas and I had a hard time choosing between the Distillers Edition and the 12-year-old cask strength. Ultimately I went with the 12.

    You guys gotta stop this malt-o-porn. It's making it almost impossible to concentrate on my Coal Ila 12.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Had a few drams last night. Started with a Balvenie Doublewood, then Balvenie 21yo Portwood and finished with the Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or. Three good drams. Really starting to enjoy single malts. I have to get me a bottle of Lagavulin. Bought one ten years ago when I was really into wine, not whiskey, and found it to be absolutely revolting. Now that my palate has developed and I love whiskey I have to try this again. Looking for an desrt island single malt. Want to find the PVW 15 year old of single malts! Any suggestions?
