Ardbeg Corryvreckan 70cl / 57.1% Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillery Bottling As a replacement for the much-loved 1990 Airigh nam Beist, Ardbeg Corryvreckan had some pretty big shoes to fill, but the good news is that this is a belter, winning World's Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards 2010 and Best No Age Statement Scotch from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
Ardbeg Uigeadail 54.2% abv Can you hear the distant rumblings? Imagine the sky turning the color of bruises and black eyes? This…this is the fearsome dark storm of Islay. Its enormity is almost intimidating. Its might and majesty so beyond the scope we’re used to seeing in such a young and core range bottling. This is like standing on the shores of Islay while the skies tear open above. Like being lambasted by gusts of rain and hurricane winds. And also like feeling grateful simply for having stood so close to the vortex and lived to tell. This is nature’s fiercest, distilled and decanted. This will be one of the most blindingly original whiskies you have ever tried. At once sweet, salty and smoky. A deep sherry influence, while not overburdening, is held in check by dense layers of smoke. There are notes of chocolate and warm leather carried, no doubt, by the sherried casks. Tendrils of salted meat and roasting…well…just roasting something. The smoke, brine and seasoned meat carry to the palate as well, here gaining a sharp little prickle from a thread of anise. The chariot that delivers this complex amalgamation of all that is Islay (and so much more) is the perfect vehicle at a respectable 54.2% (When will all of the others learn?). This is a sublimely heavy and brooding dram. A ‘noir’ whisky, if ever one was made. Deeper and darker than a Lynch movie, this is a whisky for the most introspective and dark-hearted to mull over in the most forbidding depths of the darkest lounge.

Gordon Graham's Black Bottle Blended Scotch Whisky 1 ltr
"A Taste of the Unexpected Master Blender, Gordon Graham, toiled night and day on his new creation. And as he poured a glass for his brothers, they were overwhelmed by what they found. The air filled with a heady blend of aromas - from fresh floral scents to the very deepest, oaky notes. All carried on spice-flecked wisps of delicate, peaty smoke. Slowly, they raised their glasses to indulge in their first sips and instantly the silky, mellow notes of fruit struck them. Perfectly balanced with the smoke-fringed flavours of sweet oak and honey; it was a sensation like no other. Sinking into the elegantly spiced finish of nutmeg, pepper and lingering smokiness, it was then the brothers knew: they had tasted their future. And so it would remain for over 130 years as Black Bottle affirmed its place in the hearts of drinkers around the world. "
A bottle of the 2013 relaunched Black Bottle. Owners Burn Stewart have decided to return the brand to its original 1879 roots, including the black glass that gave the blend its name. With less of a focus on Islay, there is less peatiness than hitherto, with the smoky flavours being balanced with increased fruitiness and elegance.
Black Bottle Blended Scotch whisky now features a balanced mix of fruitiness and spice alongside the peaty Islay notes that the brand has been known for. This change in direction is a return to Black Bottle's past, as it is said to have been inspired by what the whisky was like when it was made all the way back in 1879. This has also inspired the new old-style black glass bottle, which gave the whisky its name.
