Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 34

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 a bumper crop of official bottles being released, including BenRiach’s batch 13 single cask collection, Springbank’s 12CS and 18yo latest batch and some unusual new releases from Tomatin of various maturation aged or finished in different casks – a theme running throughout this weeks releases with a lot of ex Red Wine barriques being used which makes us happy.

Finally a nice assortment of Bourbon’s including Jack Daniel’s (the UK’s biggest selling whisky, having recently overtaken Famous Grouse!), Maker’s Mark and Smooth Ambler bolster the poor UK stock availability, likewise World Whiskies come in from Amrut, Box & Langatun. Plus not 1 but 2 Japan-Scotland blends from Adelphi’s The Glover 18 Year Old and Mars Maltage Cosmo.

Whatever you choose, enjoy!
