Ardbeg Traigh Bhan 19 Year 2021 Edition
This is the the third batch of Ardbeg's permanent 19 year old expression, Ardbeg Traigh Bhan (pronounced TRI VAN). Always produced in small batches and released once annually, this dram draws its inspiration from Islay’s Traigh Bhan beach, known as “the Singing Sands”. For this release, there was a slight difference in cask selection in order to convey a spicier flavor profile. Each batch has its own unique code, batch symbol and signature from a famous member of the team. This one is from Dr Bill Lumsden, Ardbeg’s Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation. It is bottled at 46.2% ABV and available as of September, 2021.
Widow Jane Lucky Thirteen Small Batch Bourbon
Once only released as part of a private single barrel program, this bourbon, though still in limited quantities, is now a permanent product in Widow Jane's core lineup. The whiskey is aged 13 years in a small selection of American oak barrels hand-picked by Widow Jane President and Head Distiller Lisa Wicker and proofed with limestone-rich water from Rosendale Mines of NY. It is bottled at 93 proof and available as of September, 2021.
Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon (2021 Release)
