    Old Grand Dad 114, with a bit of ice. No, not Scotch, but a barrel strength " High Rye" Kentucky "Straight" Bourbon, still produced by the descendants of Scots-Irish-Welsh emigrants, with as much sweetness and spice as any Highland lady, and more than enough fire to light your candle on a cold Midwinter's night anywhere--here in Chicago we are expecting a daytime high temperature of negative 20 degrees or so Fahrenheit in a day or so (and our kilted brothers in Canada are rightly rolling their eyes at that). If you can't find the 114 Proof, the 100 Proof Bonded is equally fine and usually an even more outstanding value. Water Of Life, Indeed.

    I came across a new (to me at least) Irish whiskey a month or so ago, "Proper Twelve" and thoroughly enjoyed a glass.
    However it seems a if it's impossible to find retail here in Texas at present.

    Last evening's was a wee dram of Kelpie, smuggled to me by a friend in a tiny, unlabeled tasting bottle. For tonight, I'm considering cracking open another tiny droplet, this one being a pretty little flask-shaped bottle of Loch Fyne Living Cask #4.

    Same lovely friend (a red-headed lass, as it happens) also presented me with a full bottle of Perpetuum, but we'll have to crack that one together.

    Slŕinte!

    Forgot to share last weekend that the night of the Burns Supper I had an impromptu mini tasting tour of Scotland. I had four different scotches throughout the night that covered the four major scotch producing regions of Scotland.

    I started with a Speyside - Glenlivet 12 yr. It was the smoothest and personal favorite of the evening, not a big surprise as I've had several of Glenlivet's offerings in the past and have enjoyed all of them.

    Next up was an Islay - Ardbeg's standard 10 yr. Nice subtle fruit notes on the first sips, adding a tiny splash of water really opened up the peat flavor. This was the first I'd ever tried Ardbeg and while I liked it, in retrospect I wish I hadn't added the couple drops of water. I preferred it straight up. It was still peaty without being overpowering.

    Third one was from the Highlands - Glenmorangie Original. I've had it before, though it had been quite a few years. It was OK, but not great. A bit harsh on the palette, but decent and somewhat complex flavor. This was my least favorite of the four I had that night, but nothing so bad that I wouldn't drink it again, it just wouldn't be my first pick.

    In honor of the Bard of Ayrshire, I finished the night with one from the Lowlands - Auchentoshan Three Wood. This was a very close second behind the Glenlivet. Smooth, lightly sweet, with notes of toffee or butterscotch, and a delightful belly warmth to see me home.

    Sláinte!

    Our liquor store had a sale on Laphroaig 10 so I picked up a bottle. Have only tried a wee dram once and looking forward to getting to know it better.
