A Wee Dram

If you care for a bit o' scotch now and then as I do, you may enjoy being able to sample some of the most ethereal (which sometimes also means expensive) brands produced.

Drinks By The Dram lets you acquire those samples and decide if your palate is sophisticated enough to be worthy of a full bottle. I will definitely have to get a few samples but it comes down to the usual issue with scotch...decisions, decisions. There, you are spoiled for choice. Enjoy!

That's some expensive tasting! Of course popping ten or fifteen bucks for a wee dram versus dumping $50-100 for an exotic you don't like might balance.

Not sure they'll ship to Texas either! I get a lot of wine shipped, but generally the law is pretty arcane--no retailers, for example, only wineries. One case a month--but nobody tracks it.

I like to do my own research on malt whisky and it is influenced by what is available. For a long time my go-to favorites have been Glenmorangie, Glenfiddich, McCallan 12 yr, and Aberlour.

I simply will not drink an Islay! They taste like a bucket of rainwater that has had the charred logs from last nights campfire left in it. Lagavulin and Laphroiag, I mean you!
