Trader Joe's Spey 18. It was much more fruity when first opened. Maybe it's the stuff in front of it. I'll finish this glass and see what I think.

The fruitiness was returning at the end of the glass. I have repoured. Reuslts.....


still not as fruity as fresh but it is definitely returning. It is a nice dram for the price.

You have better judgment?

Well, the Glenlivet 12 isn't as fruity tonight either. I'm guessing at my palate or influences to palate.

Gonna try the Speyside after the Livet....

Still working towards the fruitiness. More fresh wood tonight and bit of malty sweetness.
