The latest release in the Ardbeg Twenty Something series, this superb 22 Year Old pays tribute to the whisky enthusiasts of yesteryear.
This whisky was born during a time when the iconic Ardbeg Distillery name was almost consigned to the history books. During a period of uncertainty for Ardbeg in the 1980s and 1990s, when the stills were near empty and the filling store silent, a handful of young whisky enthusiasts dared to dream. Together, with hope in their hearts, they laid down a handful of casks and kept the Ardbeg spirit alive.
On the nose, luscious tropical fruits fade into sweet smoke, soot and tar. Take a sip and discover fresh green apples with a crumble topping. Notes of peppermint tea and vanilla guide you towards a long smoky finish.
Appearance: A deep yellow gold with exceptional beading.
Nose: Cautious, yet welcoming: a smoky fresh-lit fire, giving way to candle-wax and herbs. Soft sultana cake become malty, with toasted coconut, honey, lemon zest and subtle wood smoke.
Body: Medium to rich, soft.
Palate: Powerful at cask strength – syrup-smooth, with the sweetness of dark chocolate truffles to start, then spicy, mouth-drying and faintly charred, with hints of wood smoke and ripe, red berries.

Clase Azul Reposado is an ultra-premium, reposado tequila made with Tequilana Weber Blue Agave that is slow-cooked in traditional stone ovens for a minimum of 72 hours. Once the agave reaches a deep, rich flavor, it is fermented with proprietary yeast prior to distillation. Once the tequila is distilled, it is aged for 8 months in hand-select oak barrels. The result is a superb, smooth taste, which exceeds expectations with each sip.
This is a mezcal made from wild agave, which features floral tones and has an aftertaste of dried fruit. It has a sensation of fresh flowers on the palate.
Sweet and light, this product is unique because of its careful distillation process and the rarity of the agave. The sensorial experience is unmatched.

a special release of only 28,000 bottles – we celebrate autumn and winter on Orkney; a time to escape from the wild weather outside and gather together with friends and family, sharing long nights of conversation and laughter around the table, around the fire.
Presented in a beautifully embossed black glass bottle, the serpent dragon design takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas and embraces both the high sun of summer solstice and the low sun of winter solstice – the polar opposites of our island seasons – while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of our Viking ancestors, here on Orkney.

The Cream of Kentucky brand was originally introduced in 1888 by I. Trager & Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio. Just prior to the end of Prohibition, the brand was acquired by the famed Schenley Company and subsequently re-introduced in 1934. Through the 1930s and 1940s Cream of Kentucky grew to become one of the leading bourbon brands, with renowned artist Norman Rockwell provided much of the award winning artwork for the brand during its heyday. Cream of Kentucky is now owned by J.W. Rutledge, and Jim has recently purchased a limited supply of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey he feels is worthy of the rebirth of Cream of Kentucky Bourbon as a premium whiskey.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label is an unrivaled masterpiece – an exquisite combination of Scotland’s rarest and most exceptional whiskies. Only one in every ten thousand casks has the elusive quality, character and flavor to deliver the remarkable signature taste. An extraordinary whisky for extraordinary occasions.
A honey-colored whisky with a spicy, smoky fragrance. The first sip is surprisingly sweet and honeyed, then the smoke gently creeps in like fog at dawn, softly surrounding the edges of the tongue. 95 Points Wine Enthusiast
Johnnie Walker Blue Label is incomparably rich and smoky, with velvety smooth breaking waves of powerful flavor.
To make this exquisite liquid, mature Laphroaig previously aged in refill hogsheads was transferred into first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and refill quarter casks. Patiently aged in Laphroaig’s famous Warehouse No. 1, these casks were then hand selected for a final maturation. This rare whisky features a touch of Laphroaig’s trademark peat smoke tempered by lime and sea salt. Each and every sip will be well worth the wait.

This whisky holds peaty, spicy and fruity notes balanced by an attractive smoky-malty dryness. Its intricate blend of flavors creates a long, smooth and sweet finish with hints of dark chocolate and salted caramel. The best of the Highlands and coastal influences, centuries of local distilling tradition are what make our award-winning whisky so exquisite. This spirit is best served neat in a tumbler, perhaps with a splash of cool spring water.
Clear, focused, powerful and mysterious. We might say almost in prayer. Rich aromas of almond, sweet sticky pudding, biscuit, marzipan... a rum baba! Tones of citrus, fresh limoncello on an Amalfi balcony, overlooking the gulf... Sorry, I’m getting off topic. The taste propels us forwards, into the separate pages of a book, a whole world for every molecule. An extensive, long lasting range of sensations, beginning with a tasty and intense minerality, exploring every descriptive category. Fruity: banana, pineapple; Spices: star anise, cinnamon. Floral: lime, honey. Mineral: saltiness. Mysterious, enigmatic, indecipherable, magnetic, serious and powerful. A monk absorbed in his spiritual exercises...

How intriguing, and fascinating to see the impact of the production process itself. How wonderful to discover the various states of evolution that Guyana rums go through before they reach the extensive aging phase. Three little brothers of the late nineties and the beginning of the new millennium. More precisely 1998, 2001 and 2002, will keep us company this year. An exciting opportunity for you, our valued customers, to see just how much the product changes in the barrel. Of course, the scents and flavors are similar, since they come from the same stock, you’ll enjoy seeing how their characteristics evolve. Here we are sampling the youngest. A pungent and unusual bouquet of thyme, juniper, tobacco, shiny leather. Perhaps reminiscent of an antique shop, in the mouth it’s agile, racey and aggressive - characteristic of its youth - and sweet, buttery scents alternate with toasted wood and hints of a slightly acerbic tannin.
Nose: Holy mother of funk this is a swampy marsh monster of a whisky. Muddy, boggy, earthy, musty, sulfur reek charges out of the glass like a mud covered bat out of hell. However, if you give it a good 10 – 15 minutes most of it blows off and what’s left are notes of iodine, dry vermouth, wood, overripe strawberries, dark fruit syrup, vanilla, cumin and ashy peat.
Taste: Again, if you go right in without letting it breathe you’re going to get a mouthful of that muddy, swampy, sulfury character and it’s not pleasant. If you get a bottle of this or are tasting it somewhere LET IT BRETHE. Once you do, and most of it blows off, there are some nice notes of wood, malt, vermouth, cinnamon, dark fruit, sherry like sweetness and more of that ashy peat.
Finish: A long, funky and malt heavy finish with notes of sherry, caramel, anise with slight vegetal and bog characteristics.
Balance, Body & Feel: Beneath the sulphur bomb is a nice harmony of sweet and spicy notes bouncing off of the even earthier undertones. A nice medium body with a soft texture make for a nice drinking experience.

Silvano Samaroli was born in Bologna 1939. In 1968 he founded the company with a mission to select the worlds greatest Scotch whiskies. His story is that of a fanatic – an entrepreneur with an almost savant-like knowledge and palate of the world’s finest Scotch whiskies. His focus was on selecting and bottling interesting, single cask whiskies from Scotland. One of the first to introduce secondary maturing techniques in the bottling world, he would re-cask the whisky into new oak to add layers of depth and flavor. In the late 1970s, he began sourcing rum from the best distilleries in South America and the Caribbean, then transporting those rums to his bottling warehouse in Scotland for further maturation and bottling. Miltonduff is owned by Pernod Ricard (Chivas Bros) and most of the production goes into the Chivas and Ballantines. Savory notes of cardamom and caraway seeds waft from the glass, along with some light fruit with a touch of spicy ginger. The palate is beguiling, with minimality, flavors of wet slate and cedar and warming all the way down.
Takes part in all the races. He is there, ready to go… with a smile. The bike shining. Race after race without thinking about the victory. He is there ... to greatly sweat and toil only for the infinite pleasure of running. A mixture of suffering and lightness. Fatigue and joy. This Miltonduff made me immediately think a cyclist that with his elegant and proud pace hits the road thinking only the wind that caresses his face. Thoughtful, serious and intriguing.Its large bouquet opens in mineral, fruity and vegetal notes with licorice ending. Great character with an intense flavor and graceful.

This right here is a 25 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Talisker distillery. Housing a single malt Scotch whisky that was predominantly matured in American oak hogsheads with some European oak refill. Truly spectacular stuff from the beautiful island of Skye.
Nose: Banana fritters, sea spray, old oak furniture, cider apples, a whiff of Frazzles, all held together with crumbly fudge notes.
Palate: Floral heather - perhaps a hint of rose too. Develops heavier notes of salted caramel, chilli chocolate, smoky barley and nectarines.
Finish: Smoke becomes sweet on the finish, with an undercurrent of cedar.
