2005 Laphroaig 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Alexander Murray has recently been making some waves. They've used their buying power through large volume purchases for many of the country's largest chain retailers to secure stocks of some very special and rare distilleries. While many of my suppliers are unable to offer me cask strength Laphroaig of any age for less than £100+ a bottle, Alexander Murray is putting small batch cask strength malt from Islay's most flavorful distiller into the bottle for a bargain. After a little poking and prodding, we were able to secure a special price and offer this ...

2005 Bruichladdich Peated (Port Charlotte) 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exciting new whiskies coming from Alexander Murray are proof that if you work hard enough, great single malt whisky deals are still out there. We can't buy cask strength Bruichladdich for any price on the open market right now and if you do find something it will almost definitely from the old regime and wildly expensive. When we see casks pop up from the period after the reopening in 2001, they're almost always privately owned by people who were smart enough to grab a cask when they were sale for £700 a pop.

2005 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and saddle leather all emerge from this concentrated, powerful, structured 2005 that has an incredible amount of fruit, yet no shortage of ripe tannin, extract, and length.

Superfleshy but seriously structured, there's layer after layer of sweet spice, fruit and minerality pumping through the finish, with lots of latent depth and power. Far more backward than the 2003 or 2004 on release, but since this red typically puts on weight as it ages, it should be a monster--à la the 1990--when it reaches its peak.
