ISLAY
Acorn Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 2002 14yo Homage To Caledonia Cask 1214
700ml 60.00%
  Ret
$400.00
   
I was shown these a month of so ago and was surprised to see that they are from a Japanese Indie bottler, Acorn. Typical PC: loads of peat and rich spirit. but is the first time that PC has been Independently bottled?

 
Ardbeg 10yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$130.00
   
Since Glenmorangie and then Moet Hennessy got behind this distillery, there has been no looking back as this so called "entry level" malt is of a standard that few malts have ever come close to. Clean, precise, intense, complex, mouthfilling and of course highly peaty. Awesome in all departments. Just ask Jim Murray, Franz Scheurer and a raft of other notable whisky scribes. Buxton's 101.

 
Ardbeg An Oa
700ml 46.60%
  Ret
$180.00
   
So do we say goodnight to Corryvreckan and say so-long to Uigeadail? That's what I was told, but then others beg to differ. So, meet the new no age statement Ardbeg: An Oa, Is it going to be their replacement? A mix of casks including PX Sherry, Bourbon oak, French oak charred new oak. Dry and sooty is how one pundit put it while Murray rates it at 95.5pts.

 
Ardbeg Auriverdes
700ml 49.90%
  Ret
$230.00
   
Ardbeg Day 2014 Release It's all about football but the dram is highly intriguing. Fuller notes to follow...but in the meantime here's some official notes, "The casks are American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels, which were shipped over from the United States as per the norm. The insides of the barrels had therefore been charred in the traditional, Bourbon specification manner. From Caskstrength.com, "Nose: Hot, with some distinct Ardbeg smokiness (sweet cure bacon), alongside a little dry spiciness, a big waft of vanilla pipe tobacco, expresso coffee, a touch of ginger and an injection of some lighter citrus zest - fresh lemon and lime. It's powerful, but with a light touch alongside - think Didier Drogba... Palate: More classic Ardbeg fullness, the smoke turning a little more medicinal, with greener notes (fresh orchard fruit) and something a little more savoury - sweet potato perhaps? There is a youthful zestiness at play too but the mouthfeel is superb, with more smoked meat, vanilla and a candied sweetness - the 10 year old is a good reference point, but it has a little more depth alongside. Finish: Surprisingly dry, with a lingering oaky spice, some sooty residue and a last-gasp citrus bite."

 
Ardbeg Corryvreckan
700ml 57.10%
  Ret
$190.00
   
It comes from Ardbeg's experiments in the late 1990's and suprisngly is matured or part matured in French oak along with the usual ex Bousbon oak. Belived to be a marriage of Ardbeg's 10yo and Uigeadail. From John Hansell, Malt Advocate, "Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit."

 
Ardbeg Uigeadail
700ml 54.20%
  Ret
$200.00
   
The Uigeadail adds sherry to the Ardbeg range, and a mighty fine dram it is. Very intense, lots of peat (as you could imagine) but the addition of fino sherry oak along with the trademark bourbon wood to the mix, adds another dimension to this champion malt. Buxton's 101 & 97.5pts Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010.

 
Bruichladdich Octomore 5yo 04.2 Comus 167ppm
700ml 61.00%

POA
     
All I'll say is this: 5yo, 167ppm, 61% abv. Go on...I dare you!

 
Bunnahabhain 25yo
700ml 46.30%
  Ret
$590.00
   
Very impressive, every part of this malt is in harmony and in balance. Only 400 bottles released of this voluptuous, lightly peated malt. Lots of caramel fudge & ice cream notes and then the dark chocolate, toffee and ginger spice kicks in. Very much the gentle giant of the non peated whisky styles. As Jim Marray says, "Yeah, this is the business".

 
Lagavulin 1995 17yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$230.00
   
This is a most impressive Islay whisky. As I have said before take a slightly younger Lagavulin spirit and pour it into some used PX (very sweet) sherry casks. The sweetly raisined fruit works so well with the big blast of peat. And best of all, it is one of the few spirits that perfectly matches those amazing 99% pure cocoa chocolates! Pic indicative only.

 
Lagavulin 1996 12yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$230.00
   
This is the 2012 release of this richly sherried (PX sherry that is) and peaty dram. Christmas cake, rum, chocolate and a bonfire. And with such splendid balance too.

 
Lagavulin 1997 15yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$210.00
   
One of TOWC's favourite, if not well trusted malts for the last 15 or so years. For me the perfect combo of smoke and sherried fruit. Classic big, heavy weight and full on smoky Lagavulin 16yo that's had further matured in ex PX sherry casks. The end result is a melange of big, fat, sweet tasting spirit along with with plenty of smoke and that lush Christmas cake fruit flavours. Magic stuff.

 
Lagavulin 1998 15yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$210.00
   
A 2015 bottling of this extraordinarily good sherry influenced Lagavulin. From WhiskyNotes, "rich, with more ashy peat than on the nose. Some tarry notes and earthy notes. Oranges, a hint of herbal honey, but again no overdose of sherry sweetness. Tobacco leaves, some mint and Turkish coffee in the end. Less sherry than, say, five years ago."

 
Lagavulin 1999 15yo Distillers Edition
700ml 43.00%
  Ret
$210.00
   
It's always a joy to see the famed and richly flavoured Lagavulin finished in PX sherry oak. Bottled in 2015, so it's either a 15 or 16yo, From WhiskySaga, "Rich in sweetness at first, then it sort of switches gears and I find dry ashes and pepper. Amazingly it switches again and there’s notes of fruit juices – citrus, melon and pineapple."

 
Laphroaig 10yo
700ml 40.00%
  Ret
POA
     
Another absolute Islay standard...lots of smoke, iodine, rubber, coconut oak, drying, bracing, challenging and definitely not for those looking for a late afternoon comfort dram.

 
ISLANDS
Acorn Tobermory 1995 21yo Japanese Mountains Great & Small Cask 594
700ml 49.00%
  Ret
$340.00
   
I was shown these a month of so ago and was surprised to see that they are from a Japanese Indie bottler, Acorn. And what a blast it was picking this up, especially as the official age stated whiskies are getting harder and harder to find. Lightly peated, all American oak.

 
Cadenhead Single Cask Highland Park 1996 20yo
700ml 50.60%
  Ret
$299.00
   
A somewhat curious HP as they notes don't really mention the classic peat/honey combo that HP used to bang on about. I've seen modern versions, very similar to this one. Distilled 1996, bottled 2016, ex Bourbon cask, out-turn: 258 bottles. From Mr Cadenhead, Mark Watt, "A little lemon, vanilla, lots of cream, apple crumble, icing sugar and pear tart...a very coastal finish."

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Arran 1997 19yo
700ml 52.40%
  Ret
$189.00
   
Aaah, an aged Arran that was laid down in the very days of what was a very new distillery. Distilled in 1997, bottled in 2016, matured in 1 x ex Boubon cask and 1 x sherry cask. Out-tun: 486 bottles. I love the official notes, "Fruit pudding, vanilla, plum jam and rich creamy chocolate, cofffee liqueur." Not your standard tasting note for an Arran malt.

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Highland Park 1990 25yo
700ml 50.60%
  Ret
$499.00
   
This is a vatting of two bourbon hogsheads and as Serge Valentin declares, "Sharp, waxy, citrusy, herbal, very much focused, well-chiselled, slightly smoky� And there�s this bitterness that keeps it a little �intellectual. 91pts " noting that he can't understand why the distillery got rid of these casks.

 
Cadenhead Small Batch Tobermory 1995 21yo
700ml 52.50%
  Ret
$199.00
   
Here's a gem to fill the hole left by the official age stated Tober's leaving the shelves. Distilled 1995, bottled 2016, ex Bourbon casks, out-tun: 450 bottles. In Watt's words": The saltiness continues and a slight smokiness emerges with undertones of custard creams and a short waxy note."

 
Talisker 10yo
700ml 45.80%
  Ret
$125.00
   
Mmmmm..love that pungent scents of the sea, the big whiff of white pepper, the salty tang at the back and that classic mouthwatering finish. Love it! Buxton's 101.
