News: New Whisky Releases 2016 Week 16

Another bumper crop this week so we will focus on the broader implications and forego most of the specifics.

  1. New official releases from Aultmore (18yo), Benromach (Sassicaia – selling fast), Glencadam (Origin 1825 – sadly a no-age declaration entry level)
  2. Mass of Moments bottlings from Mackmyra – always worth a punt, I haven’t yet been disappointed by Mackmyra’s output.
  3. Douglas Laing’s mass release from their Provenance (youngish – distillery character led), Old Particular (quality aged stock), Premier barrel (vintage decanter bottlings) and double-barrel offerings. My choices: Glenturret 27yo, Port Charlotte 10yo, Port Ellen! (investment?)
  4. Suntory’s Hakushu release (investment?) and Glenfarclas My tribute (Collectors bottling) plus our usual archive bottlings are more than likely worth collecting or investing in.
  5. The Savoy Hotel’s return to own bottlings with Macallan (investment?) – possibly the coolest looking bottle this week.
  6. That Boutique-Y whisky company yielding to transparency and placing age declarations on their bottles – though these seem to have come at a slightly inflated price bearing in mind these are 50cl bottlings! The Ben Nevis 19yo is priced right for me.
  7. A new range (of single grains) from Alistair Forfar (mixed responses previously but perhaps an indication quality is improving considering the stocking retailer?)

Whatever you choose this week – enjoy! Slainte, Barry @TheWhiskyphiles.
