It might not be very 'PC' of us to say so, but this sherried young smokebomb, from a distillery near Islay's Loch Indaal, could be described as a bit of a Brui-ser, even though its real-life alter ego has a bit of a girl's name... MAXIMUM 1 PER CUSTOMER.

Here at last, it's the most-hyped whisky of the year - Ardbeg Galileo.  As soon as news broke that the distillery had taken part in some cod-science project to send some of its spirit up into space it was only a matter of time before a celebratory bottle appreared, and here it is. 

Galileo is made up entirely of whisky from the 1999 vintage, making it Ardbeg's first non-single-cask vintage release since Airigh Nam Beist first appeared in 2006.  The whisky is 12 years old, and some of the constituent casks had formerly held Marsala wine - however, Galileo is not a 'finished' whisky as the Marsala-matured whisky was all full-term maturation.  Our allocation of Galileo will almost certainly sell out in a fairly short space of time, so we've made it ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.

70cl / 49%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
One of 2012's most hotly-anticipated releases, Ardbeg Galileo is made up from casks distilled in 1999, some of which spent their full term of maturation in casks that previously held Marsala wine, imparting sweet tropical fruit flavours to the mix. Galileo's concept is in celebration of the well-publicised experiment whereby small quantities oF Ardbeg were sent into space at the end of 2011 to see how they mature in zero gravity or something. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.

Macallan 18 year old Sherry vintage release is probably THE defining expression from the distillery, beloved of countless whisky fans worldwide.  The 1994 is here at last, but we dovwonder how long these will continue to be viable as supply dwindles in the face of overwhelming demand. 

Sadly, Macallan has already been forced to withdraw the 10yo, 12yo and 15yo expressions (and the Fine Oak range) from the UK market, but let's hope that those extreme measures mean there's a few more of these vintage 18 year olds in years to come.

The 1994 vintage edition of Macallan's iconic sherry cask 18 year old arrives as news sinks in of the discontinuation of age statements across most of the distillery's standard range. How much longer will these vintage 18yos continue to be produced??
