Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 27

Welcome to this week’s Whisky New Releases, a regular feature in which we report on the best of both the official and independently bottled whiskies released during the previous week.

This week the big news is the release of the final Macallan/Lalique decanter filled with 65 year old spirit – a sure investment if you can get one & something we had a sneak peak at on our Instagram feed 16 weeks ago. Other good investment whiskies include Balvenie’s Tun 1509 Batch 3 always with good resale potential, and Tomatin’s 44yo 1971 vintage limited to 252 numbered bottles. Other OB’s include Benromach’s latest Organic offering, a competitively priced 21yo from Knockando (our top pick this week). From the IB’s Gleann Mór’s Springbank is sure to sell quickly but our pick is Signatory’s CS 29yo Glenturret – a rare cask from a small batch distillery!
