"Ardbeg Corryvreckan takes its name from the famous whirlpool that lies to the north of Islay, where only the bravest souls dare to venture. Swirling aromas and torrents of deep, peaty, peppery taste lurk beneath the surface of this beautifully balanced dram. Like the whirlpool itself, Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted! Awarded The World’s Best Single Malt in 2010 by the World Whiskies Awards." —producer

"Originally released for the Japanese market, this special edition of Chivas Regal blended Scotch whisky was inspired by a trip that Master Distiller Colin Scott took to Japan. Part of the blend was matured in Mizunara oak casks, which is rather rare in the whisky world but always intriguing." —producer
"Duke Founder's Reserve Double Barrel Rye Whiskey serves as the brand’s second cask-finished whiskey after the Duke’s Grand Cru. Distilled exclusively from rye grain, the whisky is initially aged in used wine barrels before being finished in different wine barrels that were previously used to age Duke’s bourbon. The end result is a superbly complex, sweet, and spicy expression that pay homage to Wayne’s own devotion to achieving perfection of his craft." —producer
"The story of handcrafted Ledaig 42YO begins on the Isle of Mull at Tobermory Distillery, the only distillery on the island and amongst the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. Named Dùsgadh, meaning 'awakening' in Scot's Gaelic, reflecting the long, dormant period of maturation, this is the rarest and oldest Ledaig ever released.
"The heavy intensity of Ledaig 42YO makes it an ideal digestif, or accompaniment to a fine cigar. This depth also means that it is best enjoyed neat. Like all of the malts in the Burn Stewart portfolio, Ledaig 42YO is un-chillfiltered, ensuring that more of the whisky's natural aroma, flavour and texture remain in the bottle, deepening the taste.
"The luxurious packaging which houses Ledaig 42YO has been inspired by the copper from the retired stills, which released the first spirit in 1972 and has finally reached the end of its distilling life. The aged copper has been used as part of the Ledaig 42YO packaging to celebrate this milestone and honour its rich heritage." —producer
"An exceptionally distinctive bourbon with remarkable depth, complexity and length, procured by Dave Phinney. Micro batch experimentation and maturation in our finest Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon barrels resulted in a rich, layered and unique oak profile. Tamed with pristine water originating from a natural hillside spring found on Dave's property 2000 feet above the Alexander Valley in California. Aromatically intriguing with brown sugar, maple, caramelized oak, exotic spices, orange peel and campfire. The palate is velvety smooth, rich and packed with flavors of brown spice, honey and intense caramel. The complexity is apparent and the finish is persistent, long lasting and focused." —producer
"A blend of remarkable aged grain whiskies, including a barrel of 30-year-old from the Carsebridge Distillery, long since closed. Blended by Willie Phillips, formerly of The Macallan; finished in first-fill sherry casks. Subtle, elegant, authentically individual, with great structure." —producer
"The Founder's Reserve is a unique take on the old Irish Pot Still Whiskey and is the original and signature blend created by founder Bernard Walsh. It is a blend of two styles, Single Malt and Single Pot Still. The proportions used are 70% Single Malt and 30% Single Pot Still. This is unusual in itself, as it is the only Irish blended whiskey to contain 100% whiskey distillates from the copper pot still and 0% Grain or Column still whiskey. This results in a much more flavoursome whiskey. The Founder's Reserve is triple distilled and matured in Bourbon Casks. The nose features a a zesty Spice, with hints of black pepper, cinnamon and peaches. A slight hint of vanilla too, with a suggestive savour of Green Apple. On the palate, Pot Still Spice, malt, dark chocolate, bourbon oak, and crème caramel. Everlasting finish with oak and butterscotch. Lingers for what seems like an eternity!" —producer
