Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 33

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 an exciting new release from Kilkerran with their first age-statement whisky the Kilkerran 12 Year Old ! Some very interesting an well-designed looking Italian whiskies from Puni and Haig Club release their Clubman bourbon matured grain which we have been recently sampling and find hard to discover flaw with.

As usual the new releases are flooded with Independent bottlings so our picks are: Auchroisk 16 Year Old 1999 – Strictly Limited (Càrn Mòr) , Darkness! Loch Lomond 19 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish, Invergordon 18 Year Old 1997 (cask 11197) – Old Particular (Douglas Laing) and Glen Elgin 25 Year Old 1990 (cask 7881) – Cask Strength Collection (Signatory)

Investment and prestige whisky releases this week see Douglas Laing’s Macallan 25 Year Old 1990 (cask 10878) – Xtra Old Particular (Douglas Laing), Ian Macleoad’s Ardbeg 20 Year Old 1996 (casks 808 & 811) – Chieftain’s (Ian Macleod)  and only 100 bottles available each year from a single French Oak barrel (a la Sullivans Cove) the rather pricey Tasmania Distillery 1812 Indefatigable !
