News: New Whisky Releases 2016 Week 10

This week is another relatively quiet one whisky-wise, however we have a couple of official releases. Aberlour’s ever popular A’Bunadh continues to go from strength-to-strength in its 54th incarnation – perhaps it is time again we tried this again as it usually does not disappoint. BenRiach re-launch their 16 Years Old in new packaging. Glenora’s Glen Breton 10 Year Old – the only Canadian single malt whisky – becomes easily available in the UK. G&M’s 1974 Glenlivet – used in their The Wood Makes the Whisky campaign is available and hopefully our tasting notes on this exact expression should be posted soon! Rebll Yell have produced a small batch rye (obviously a comparator to Crown Royal’s recent award-winning example). This week however, my money is on the Finlaggan port and sherry cask finished releases. Finlaggan is from an undisclosed Islay distillery (oft-rumoured to be a certain distillery currently celebrating their 200th anniversary!).
