Bruichladdich Octomore 06

Titanic amounts of peat but with a light, delicate complexity and a beguiling finesse. Young, yet eminently mature, it defies us. It remains an enigma. We embrace that.
Here, we pay tribute to its pedigree, to the land from which it came and the raw materials that gave it life: Octomore Scottish Barley.
We believe challenging convention matters.

Peaty Wisky

Laphroaig 10 Year Old

The original Laphroaig, distilled the same way today as when Ian Hunter invented it over 75 years ago.

In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour.

Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish.

COLOUR : Full sparkling gold

NOSE: Huge smoke, seaweedy, "medicinal", with a hint of sweetness

BODY: Full bodied

PALATE: Suprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness

FINISH: Lingering

A magic window

Perch is a clever iPad and iPhone app that is designed expressly for ambient video connections. It’s ideal for use with two iPads mounted on walls in two different locations. You connect to each other using the Perch app, which turns the iPads into magic windows.

Perch does something really cool that Skype and Google+ do not: It mutes the sound unless somebody is looking at one of the iPads. When one user wants to talk to the other, he or she just looks at the iPad and talks, and the audio is turned on so both people can hear each other.

Whether you use these three free apps for creating ambient video connections — and whether you use your TV, PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone — understand that ambient video is free and easy but requires a shift in perspective.

Once you’ve made that shift, however, you can turn an electronic device you already own into a magic window that connects you to the people you want to be connected with, just like you were hanging out together.
