Ardbeg 1999 13yo Galileo
700ml 49.00%
  Ret
$700.00
   
From Possible Failure...Comes a brilliant new Ardbeg star! Enough of the Sicilian-ness, this latest offering from Lumsden's skunk works proves to be a most intriguing and dare I say daring experiment that almost went wrong. Lumsden team's use of Sicilian Marsala casks didn't turn out as expected, in his words, "too syrupy and bit too treacly." So a dose of classic Ardbeg was called for. From the well known blogger Billy, "Nose: Soft, sweet peat, sweet spirity notes, tarred ropes, coal dust, barbequed pineapple (� la St Heston of Bray), a touch of dirty sump oil, pine needles, freshly smashed-open coconut, dry breadcrumbs and crushed seashells. Palate: The first thing I noticed was that it wasn�t as sweet as the nose might have suggested, at least not in an upfront syrupy way. Instead it had unsweetened tropical fruit and sharp edged Fruit Salad chews, filled out with rich fruitcake sweetness, although this is Ardbeg so it was more a �smoked fruitcake� hit, along with cold coal stoves, dark wood, a hint of leaf mulch and some sea spray. Finish: On the swallow there was a burst of tarry phenols, which faded to leave lingering damp wood and leaves." And from Gavin D Smith's Whisky Pages - Whisky Of The Year (no age) 2012!

 
Ardbeg Corryvreckan1st Release
700ml 57.10%
  Ret
$340.00
   
If you've missed the advertising on this new Ardbeg, then I suggest you hunt it out. Great stuff. So, another new Ardbeg, once again very limited but I do hear that it is to replace the Beist! So I wonder what's next? 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 Supernova Committee Release SN2015 100ppm
700ml 54.30%
  Ret
$1000.00
   
Here it is, the 100ppm whopper from Ardbeg. Sweet and smoky with the marketing hint that this may be last of this series! In their words, "At 100ppm, the peat is firing on all cylinders, with blasts of spice, salted caramel and billowing smoke. And then it�s back to the laboratory, where antiseptic lozenges, medicinal notes and zingy aniseed intermingle with dark tar and intense chilli-spice."

 
Ardbeg We've Arrived Renaissance
700ml 55.90%
  Ret
$650.00
   
The final in the lead up to Ardbeg's release later this year of their very owned distilled 10yo. Very, very impressive not only for its massive peat attack but also for its impressive mouthfeel and depth & complexity of flavour. Bottled at cask strength.

 
Bowmore Voyage Port Cask Old Bottling
700ml 56.00%
  Ret
$850.00
   
RARE Released in 2000, this Port Cask influenced Bowmore certainly caught everyone's attention at the time, as the alcohol was bright and there was unique flavour of violets. As one pundit put it in 2017, "At the beginning very intense taste of licorice lozenges with violet flavor. Fine-herb, bitter wood. Sweet honey, a pine needle infusion. Marzipan chocolate." Actual pic shown.

 
Brora 30yo 2003 2nd Release
700ml 55.70%
  Ret
$3500.00
   
Founded 1819, closed 1983 and often gets confused with Clynelish. Why? Because both distillerys were on the some site. It's worth doing a bit of reading on this malt, as Brora was the heavily peated version of it's sibling Clynelish. This 30yo is the second release and for quite some time was the absolute darling of the whisky collectors around the globe. And still is. Pic indicative only.

 
Cadenhead Single Cask Glen Keith 1973 42yo
700ml 45.80%
  Ret
$749.00
   
Wowsers! How old can a whisky get? A relatively new distillery, founded 1957, closed in 1999 and reopened in 2013! In their words as I will probably never get to try it, Herbal on the nose, more jammy fruity notes on the taste with growing spices of cloves and cinnamon. Dried bananas and lime pickle on the finish. Only 180 bottles released.

   
Douglas Laing XOP Port Ellen 1982 33yo
700ml 55.60%
  Ret
$3400.00
   
A Port Ellen. My first for 2018. Even with the announcement of the new distillery. These older bottlings are still attracting enthusiastic attention by collectors and imbibers alike. And the style? Soft and gentle does it.

 
Duncan Taylor Dallas Dhu 1981 24yo Single Cask
700ml 58.30%
  Ret
$670.00
   
Closed Distillery. And quite the oddity, as the distillery was mothballed in 1983 and then turned into museum. And all the equipment is still there. The distillery style was sweet, honeyed and oily.

   
Glen Albyn 10yo Castle Box Old Bottling
750ml 43.00%
  Ret
$800.00
   
RARE And why is it rare? Because it is an official bottling possibly dating from the late 1970's. I remember Glen Alby's being quite oily. Actual pic shown.

 
Glen Flagler 5yo 100% Pot Still All Malt Half Gallon Decanter 2000ml
40.00%
  Ret
$2500.00
   
RARE Founded 1964. Closed 1985. Demolished 1988. This truly rare 5yo Lowlander was produced in the 1970's. And take a look at the size! I suspect this large bottle was produced for the American market. And the taste? I have no idea. Actual pic shown.

700ml 57.30%

This 2016 release of the famed Glendronach single casks is always a welcome treat. For this year we have almost a baby Glendro on offer. PX Sherry oak matured, cask strength and only 664 bottles were released worldwide. Official notes state, "Sumptuous depths of sweet dates and ripe figs hold a crisp oak, herbal balance complementing the rich sherry character."

 
Glendronach 25yo Grandeur Batch 007 Oloroso Sherry Casks
700ml 50.60%
  Ret
$1500.00
   
This is the 2016 release for Australia of the famed and desired Grandeur. Now a 25yo but only 1180 bottles released worldwide. And this note from the Whisky Ranter blogger who doesn't "love" Speyside whiskies, "Stewed plums, dry spices, almonds and even cocoa kept resurfacing and falling back into the depths of sherried darkness with a puff of sweet cigar smoke seeing them all off. In the mouth the spirit seemed to be coalescing around an uncompromisingly spicy centre of cloves, cardamon, and black pepper until an astringent blip halted the promising development. On the midpalate fresh and creamy tropical fruits single-handedly prevailed over somewhat obstinate tannins and spices. The finish was as big as it was complex: the juiciness of red berries, spiciness of stewed plum compote, dryness of dark chocolate, sweetness of honeycomb"

 
Glenmorangie Signet
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$300.00
   
It's Back!!! Signet: I was wondering how long it would take until some clever distiller decided to play with his/hers wash. So once again, those innovators at Glenmorangie have pulled it off, using a highly toasted barley malt or to use the brewers terms, a chocolate malt, sourced from around Tain. The resultant whisky was then matured in a combination of ex bourbon, Oloroso and get this, new oak casks as well! And wait there is more, this spirit is then married to a number of other well aged (up to 35yo) Glenmorangie spirits. And the results: Pungent, perfumy, even afterhsvae, plenty of roasted malt flavours, along with sherry and Artisan cask richness, plenty of fruit cake characters as well.

 
Gordon & MacPhail Glen Albyn 1974 26yo
700ml 40.00%
  Ret
$850.00
   
RARE Glen Albyn was closed as part of the Whisky Loch closures by United Distillers in the early to mid 1980's. The distillery was part of the famous Inverness three and was founded in 1844. Actual pic shown.

 
Gordon & MacPhail Le Cornu Longmorn 1974 33yo
700ml 43.70%
  Ret
$800.00
   
David Le Cornu certainly has a nose for finding exceptional, well aged single malt whiskies. He also has the unique ability of knowing the potential in young whiskies in cask. Who can ever forget his two very famous Macallan 25yo's that set the market alight in the early 2000's? David did it again in 2007, by releasing a carefully nutured, full sherried Longmorn to perfect maturity. This is a malt where nothing is out of place. A medium rich style that is massively long, beguilingly sweet, gently warming and very mouthfilling. Tasting of dried citrus peel, citrus oil, raisined cane fruits and a hint of Highland peat. And there's hints of cardamom, tobacco & Brazil nuts. The oak is superb: soft & chewy and the spirit adds life to the sweetness. The finish is drying and slightly astringent, maybe even a touch tannic. And it is at true cask strength. So to 2018, and David has released a small handful of this amazing malt for sale. And as a treat special treat, David will personalize each label with a name of your choice! BTW this dram was an award winner in 2010 at the MWSoA awards. Brilliant stuff!! Bravo David.
