New arrival from Ardbeg. From the back of the bottle:
"SPACE 1999. Ardbeg has always been right up there, having been voted Best Scotch Whisky in the Worls three times on the bounce. But in October 2011 Ardbeg-crafted molecules went one gi...
ant leap further...out of this world and into orbit. On Earth we created Ardbeg Galileo-a celebration of Ardbeg's first ever experiment in space."

Aroma:Spicy toffee, tropical fruits and a puff of soot.

Taste: Salty, yet sweet with cream and a burst of smoking apricots.

Finish: Long, lingering and serene.

New Arrivals: Bunnahabhain Toiteach (Heavily Peated Single Malt)

Hey all,

We just landed the first ever peated release from Bunnahabhain called Toiteach! This heavily peated monster of a single malt is extremely limited, only 20 cases for San Francisco, barely a drop in the bucket for the largest whiskey consuming city in the country. What I like about Bunnahabhain these days is their single malts are non-chill filtered and have no added coloring. Couple that with Toiteach's robust proofing at 46% and you have a smoky-peaty-sea weedy beauty of a single malt. You want this!
