Dark… mysterious… Uigeadail! The Ardbeg Distillery is arguably one of the greatest distilleries on Earth. It produces one of the most peated Scotch Whiskies. The distillery was started in the early 18th century on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll, and Bute, Scotland, and is now owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy. During the years it was closed and reopened several times, as the majority of other distilleries in Scotland, and changed owners many times; however, it has never lost the genuine devotion of producing The Ultimate Islay Malt. Ardbeg Uigeadail is one of their finest and most-loved expressions. It won a Double Gold medal at San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2017 and it was named the Whisky of The Year 2009 by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. The Uigeadail is named for the Loch from where Ardbeg draws its waters, and in Gaelic stands for Dark and Mysterious Place. The Uigeadail is a marriage of Ardbeg's Whisky aged in Bourbon barrels and Sherry butts. It’s bottled at cask strength for maximum flavor impact. Oo-Yeah.

14 Year Old

This might just become your favorite malt.   Oban Distillery is found beneath a steep cliff on the West Coast of Scotland in a port town of the same name. In fact, the town was built around the distillery, highlighting the importance of Scotch production to the economy of the day (and probably these days as well!). The distillery itself was built in 1793, making it one of the oldest in Scotland. The malt produced here is the embodiment of the salty coastal surrounds of Oban Distillery itself.   The Oban 14 Year Old tells a tale of its seaside home in every sip. Reflecting the rough rocky shores of “The Gateway to the Isles”, this dram is thick with smoke and tangy sea air. If you close your eyes you can perfectly imagine the waves rolling in over the crags and the salt wind blowing through the Whisky barrels. Despite the peated elegance of this malt, it is brilliantly smooth and will become your new favorite malt if you give it half a chance!   Discover additional Scotches under $100!

The Balvenie

14 Year Old Caribbean Cask

Scotland and the Caribbean in one bottle. The Balvenie distillery is the life work of William Grant. Born in Dufftown, Scotland, William began his life as a cattle herder, and later worked as a shoemaker apprentice until he became a bookkeeper at the Mortlach distillery. There he found his love of making the Water of Life. After twenty years of studying, and mastering the trade, he bought a field near Balvenie castle and laid the foundations for what was later to become the Balvenie Distillery. His work gave this Speyside single malt a true mark of quality and uniqueness that has been respected and cherished ever since. The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak casks for 14 years and finished in casks that held Caribbean Rum before. The duality of character in this bottle is what we respect, and enjoy. It’s the best of Scotland and the Caribbean in one Bottle.   Discover additional Scotches under $100!

Please sir, pour us another one!  Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the "Big 3" Single Malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. Their achievements are numerous — including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a very broad range of world-class Single Malt Whiskies that have a huge global following. The Macallan 12 YO Sherry Oak is the core of The Macallan lineup. When you walk into the local pub and simply order a "Macallan," this is what will be poured into your glass — and they are sophisticated enough to keep a quantity of it on hand.
