Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 35

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 in the Bowmore 9 Year Old Sherry Cask Matured recognising an increasing trend towards age declaration whisky not in double-figures! There are also official releases from Ben Nevis and Edradour .

From the Independent bottlers another slew of fine looking whisky from Gordon & MacPhail including Balblair 1997  and Tormore 1996 exclusive bottles for The Whisky Exchange and the rather spectacular Strathisla 1967 . Malts of Scotland also introduce us to Tullahoma (George Dickel) 2011 and Heaven Hill 2001 Islay Cask Finish the latter giving an interesting spin as a “bourbon” finished in peaty Islay casks – our pick of the week.
