    Re: What Wee Dram are you enjoying now?

    I bought a bottle of 12 yr old BenRiach. I have high hopes for this single malt because its one of the heavily peated whisky that is not in the island of Islay. Available in the store was a 10 yr and a 18 yr. Its about 46 abv so added a teaspoon of water. The peatiness is there but I was not very impressed with the body. I thought the aftertaste was thin.

    Drank two nice pours of aberlour a'bunadh and am feeling no pain. I am really floored by how much I enjoyed these drams. Delicious

    My first glass of Teacher's Highland Cream. Nothing too mind-blowing, but it is a cheap blend after all. Nice nose, but the flavour is a bit lacking. I'm sure the coffee I had beforehand didn't do my palette any favours, though...

    Give it time to open up and make sure your palate is cleansed. I am certain that you will find it much more flavorful.

    So far, I'm finding a bitterness in the flavour that is turning me off of it...I hope I like it better tomorrow...

    hehe thanks for that warning. It is really smooth and delicious. It really creeps up on you. I had a pour of Talisker Distillers Edition after that but had to really keep it small as I was already reaching my limit from that AA

    started the night with a'bunadh and now on to a nice pour of Talisker 18. This stuff is magnificent. I'm enjoying it neat at the behest of Gov and I can really taste more of the smoky and spicy elements this way. Very nice and neat

    A'Bunadh batch #21 with a splash of water. This is the only whisk(e)y I drink not neat. It needs a splash of water.
