Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 30

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 we have official bottlings from Arran (Madeira Cask Finish ) and The Speysides controversial Beinn Dubh for fans of black. From the independents G&M’s Cask Strength Clynelish is sure to be good and Langsides ‘Nice ‘n Peaty’  looks a very interesting colour too! Finally Hunter Laing’s Longmorn 30 Year Old caught my eye but comes with a hefty price-tag.
