Last night's whisky line-up...

Always nice to be up in the country, especially on the first day of spring (never mind the still substantial quantities of snow on the ground). So we kicked back after dinner and slowly sipped our way through the following...

Nikka Taketsuru 12YO (lovely sweet-dry balance with the faintest whisper of smoke-infused oak... a little perfumey as well, though pleasantly so)
Dalmore 12YO (initially much sweeter and toffee-ishly smoother than I remembered, but gradually gaining in that bittersweet Seville orange quality I like so much)
Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban (good flavour thrust... slight bitterness, possibly from a less prolonged maturation period combined with the higher proof... still think I prefer the old Port Wood Finish over this one, however)
Bowmore 16YO Wine Cask Matured Distilled 1992 (perhaps not quite as outstanding as the 1991 Port Matured edition, but very interesting nonetheless... seemed more harmonious than the older Bowmore Dusk Claret Finished release, with the Islay characteristics percolating through in quite a 'serene' fashion)

Lots of water on the side!
