News: New Whisky Releases 2016 Week 5

This weeks new whisky releases feature some new (to us) Independent bottlers. Of particular note the Single Malts of Scotland range from Speciality Drinks look on the face of it to be great value, well aged, single cask, cask strength examples that put some of the other bottlers to shame when comparing prices! Other than St George’s triple-distilled cask strength (Chapter 17) our recommendation this week is the 24 year old Longmorn from Speciality Drinks.

Slainte!
