Old Scotch, Back in Stock

We've been out of these whiskies for some time and we'll likely be out of them again soon. Might want to grab these while they're here for a last minute gift!

Bunnahabhain 18 Year Old Islay Single Malt Whisky $109.99 - Color: Rich golden amber Nose: Liquid caramel bubbling on the stove, banana cream pie, macadamia nut brittle and the blowing sea breeze coming off the Sound of Islay. Palate: It lies on your palate like heavy syrup that coats your mouth. The flavors are all creamy butter; toasted almonds and Brazilian nuts, fresh pipe tobacco and a sea brininess that is a classic taste of Bunnahabhain. The weight of the 18 year old is very heavy like your favorite blanket on a cold winter's day. The finish is extremely long and warming with just a wee bit of spiciness. What a stunning dram!

Oban 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky $99.99 - Always tough to find - this is a limited edition bottling for the US only.  As the cannister states, "only so much can be made, it is never enough."

Old Pulteney 21 year old Single Malt Whisky $129.99 - Rated the #1 Whisky in the World by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible for 2012.  Get it while you can because there's likely to be a run on this once the word gets out.  Aged in a combination of Bourbon and Sherry casks, the 21 year has loads of dried apricots and a supple mouthfeel.  The expression, which was created at the Pulteney distillery in Wick, Caithness, scored a record-equaling 97.5 points out of 100 and in doing so became only the third single malt to have claimed the title since its inception in 1994. (There are another 12 cases coming to NorCal this Friday)
