News: New Whisky Releases 2016 Week 25

This week see’s a whole host of official release including BenRiach 1/4 cask and Glenglassaugh Octave casks from the group recently acquired by Brown-Forman. It maybe these were always intended to be released but a host of ‘forced’ cask maturations don’t leave me inspired. Benromach latest Peat Smoke hits ~10 years old, now that is something to get excited about. Also exciting are Tobermory’s 42 year old and 1996 Ledaig Sherry Finish – both likely to be spectacular whiskies going on current form.

From the Independent bottlers; Càrn Mòr have a host of bottlings but their 26yo Clynelish will certainly inspire a ‘serge’ of interest perhaps? The Westport may be worth a punt to, it is not often seen as a bottled blended malt at this age. Douglas Laing have a host of Grain whiskies bottled under their old particular range. TBWC have another Ardbeg and a stunning looking but investment priced Macallan 25yo. My money would go to the Coopers Choice Longmorn’s (19 and 21yo) or Ben Nevis 17yo seems competitively priced. Another interestingly named batch from Weymss is also released, however the Linkwood seems the only one worth it for under £100.
