    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Whyte & Mackay The Thirteen. A decent blend. Creamy sherried malt fights with hard, bitter grains. Some fruit and spice, and just a hint of peat.

    Finishing my Lombard (labeled "Pebble Beach") 12-year Speyside today.

    Overall, not bad, especially since I grabbed it on clearance for $35/btl.

    Nothing truly special, but it is a decently-executed 12-year American Oak-matured Speyside.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I have never posted in here before, but I got a 50ml of Michael Collins Blend from a friend tonight and gave it a whirl. I thought it was tasty, but not nearly as rich or flavorful as the Black Bush I had last night. It may be a little sweeter than the Bush, but the sweetness was more artificial seeming & it did not have as much character.

    I had "Celtic Nations" tonight. Perhaps the best Irish style whiskey I've ever tasted. Bottled and produced by Bruichladdich, a hint of peat, but lite and balanced.

    Is Celtic Nations a new whiskey? Never heard of it.

    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    Celtic Nations is a blend of Scottish SM's and an Irish SM. Bruichladdich used some lightly peated and heavily peated SM's in the mix. The release was the 1st and last in a series. Evidently the powers to be didn't like SSM mixed with ISM. They cannot produce anymore.

    Trying a new one tonight: Stronachie 12 year old. It's on sale so I split a bottle with my brother. Quite nice. Fruit and spice and a fair bit of peat smoke for a Highland malt.

    CELTIC NATIONS (BRUICHLADDICH + COOLEY!)

    "A blend of Bruichladdich 1994, medium peated Irish whisky and some Port Charlotte. This was supposed to be the first of 9 Celtic Nations bottlings, but the the process of blending the scotch and the Irish spirits has been banned by the SWA so this will be only one. Limited to 7,200 bottles.
    NO LONGER AVAILABLE. This 'Dearly Departed' whisky is a rare, discontinued bottling shown for information only. "

    SWA...Scotch Whiskey Association

    "The principal functions of the SWA can be summarised as follows:
    To protect the integrity of Scotch Whisky worldwide
    To promote responsible attitudes to alcohol consumption
    To secure fair and equal access to international markets
    To tackle tax discrimination and secure appropriate regulation of the industry
    To promote Scotch Whisky as a quality product made from natural raw materials
    To represent the industry's interests at governmental level both at home and abroad"

    If the whiskey is not called Scotch....why would it be involved?
    The bottle says "Celtic blended whiskey".
