News: New Whisky Releases 2016 Week 24

Welcome to this weeks New Releases from The Whiskyphiles!

Of note this week is Springbank’s 12 Year Old Burgundy Cask release selling out fast! If you haven’t purchased one yesterday these may well be gone by now. Ok normal service resuming. Cooley release a 22yo Connemara. The chaps at Darkness are at it again with 2 releases; a Port Charlotte and Tullibardine, with only £30 but 20 years of a difference between them I’d opt for the Tulli! Gleann Mor continue to find great casks another Arran but a 20yo Ben Nevis floats my boat. Of the Hunter Liang releases I’d opt fo the nutty 20yo Inchgower but the HP and Carsebridge make excellent drinking or keeping whisky options. A brace of Craigellachies worth a punt though from the Vintage Malt Whisky Co. their Glenlossie has me intrigued. Finally a very rare chance to snag a Coloured Joker from Hanyu/Ichiro’s malts but at this price maybe not the best investment option as available for a deal less at auction if you are lucky?
