Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 26

This weeks new releases sees official bottling expressions released from the likes of Ardbeg; Dark Cove – see our review here , Benromach; 1974 vintage, Edradour 10yo SFTC and The Glenlivet; The Cipher. I’m sure the Benromach is well worth it as a potential investment as for the Glenlivet Cipher, a whisky I am unlikely to taste or give less of a sh!t about – this really looks like a bad day at the marketing dept. Rather than the usual marketing BS on a release this comes in a cryptic black bottle much like their previous Alpha (remember that? – me neither) expression – I’d suggest if you enjoy Glenlivet spend your money wisely on the Signatory release 19 yo single cask from a 1st fill sherry butt! Other notable releases this week a couple of The Speyside distillery expressions from Càrn Mòr and That Boutique-y Whisky Company seem good value and always offer interesting flavour profiles. Gleann Mór’s Glengoyne and maybe not to everyone’s taste but Signatory’s Cask Strength Heavily Peated Jura both seem like substantial whiskies for their RRP which intrigue me hugely.
