Some recent drams...... :)



I will keep going back to this one.....theres some much toffee and orange in this your think you can taste chocolate but thats in your head...Wow, and this is no dessert it has plenty of power on the nose and palette.






This is an unusual one.....theres a beeswax sense to it that is intriguing and a little strange in a good way.....worth trying!






At $29 I said to myself with a snob like tone.....you get what you pay for but I had seen ratings up at 93 points from whiskey magazines so......they are right, its quite amazing and you might ask yourself if there is some Gaelic magic going on that can put a bottle of $29 malt in the same range as a 94 point, $90 bottle of Lagavulin (Whiskey Advocates Magazine).  Only on way to find out ;)

Just back from a short break in Highland Perthshire where I visited this place...........



The smallest distillery in Scotland where everything is hand made by the three distillery workers.

I purchased this........



and thereafter partook of said amber nectar of the gods, at my holiday place, looking out over this landscape one afternoon in the late summer sun....



Very pleasant indeed.


PS Julio .....this dram also tasted wonderful in the distillery tasting room  ;) 8)

Beautiful indeed.

I forgot to report in here about some very nice single malts I enjoyed in Boston at a convention this summer. Must dig through Facebook to find photos and details.

Please do Mike...you and your fellow writers have great taste in single malts.  Look forward to it!

My current dram.....lots of coconut and vanilla.  Glenmorangie in body but much superior on all other counts

From ReaderCon, a genre fiction convention in Boston, MA, this past July. Here's a whisky lover's room party where we shared some special items before going up to a bigger, busier party in the room of one of the publishers at the convention.

Nice line up there Mike....the whisky I mean ;)

Aberlour 16 is a favorite.....Auchentoshan 12 is my go to malt and I had my eye on the triple wood but have not taken the plunge yet.  Did you like it?

Definitely yes. To me, Auchentoshan 12 is good, but Three Wood is special. Definitely worth the extra money, so if you like Auchentoshan 12, definitely try Three Wood.
