Ardbeg 25 Year Old
Ardbeg have selected some of their rarest ex-bourbon casks for this 25-year-old release. Filled during the darker days of the distillery's past during the 1990s, this whisky has been aged for a quarter of a century, resulting in a pungent burst of smoked cream, fennel and tropical fruit followed by candied apple, pear and a lingering finish of fudge, peat smoke and aniseed.

Ardbeg haven't cut any corners with their packaging here either; the decorative stopper and collar feature detailed debossing and the box is opened via a push/release mechanism, which is wrapped in a textured fabric secured by a metal cage - symbolic of  the caged, untamed whisky within. The bottle has an opaque silver coating with a stylish matte finish.

Ardbeg Anthology 13 Year Old – The Harpy’s Tale
The first part of a new series exploring experimental maturations created by Dr. Bill Lumsden. In this first instalment, we find a 13 year old expression matured in sweet Sauternes wine casks married with classic Ardbeg that was matured in ex-bourbon casks. A harmony of sweet and smoke, bringing together notes of extra virgin olive oil with aromatic herbal notes of coriander and sage, before waxiness, citrus and carbolic soap peel away to reveal crème brûlée. Moss and treacle are met on a sip, along with aniseed lozenges and sweet balsamic, smoked apricots and eucalyptus oil. Packed with flavour that lingers long after each indulgent sip, and bottled without additional colouring of chill-filtration.

Ardbeg Heavy Vapours
With Ardbeg known for its pungent Islay style, many would be surprised to hear that the lyne arm of the still is fitted with a purifier, designed to recycle the heaviest vapours to create a lighter spirit. It begs the question, what would Ardbeg be like without this purifier? Well, the folks at the distillery have answered: the Heavy Vapours uses distillate that was produced when the famous Ardbeg purifier was disabled, leading to an altogether more intense experience. 
Tasting notes by Dr Bill Lumsden
Nose: Intense, pungent and aromatic with hints of sweetness – expect a distinctive farmyard scent drifting along with a crunchy aroma of creosote or tar. A splash of water disturbs the vapours and billows of dark chocolate cream laced with smoked artichoke emerge. 
Palate: On the palate, darker flavours and notes arise. A burst of bittersweetness surges with flavours of ashy coal, cardamom, pepp

Aultmore's vibrant Speyside style presents a fresh, crisp apple and pear profile. Like any sensible independent bottler, the team at Gordon & MacPhail pondered a new approach to some of their maturing Aultmore, offering a departure from a classic so we may all enjoy a different take on this Speyside workhorse. Here we find the fruits of such labour: a 13 year old expression of Aultmore that enjoyed a three-year finish in a St. Joseph red wine cask, a renowned wine from the Rhone region. Popping with raspberries and red currants with lashings of chocolate, spice and vanilla fudge, whilst retaining the classic orchard fruits of the distillery. A wonderful sipper, naturally coloured and un-chill filtered.
