Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 41

Welcome to The Whiskyphiles New Releases, our weekly report on the best of both the official and independently bottled whisky recently released.

Apologies for the delay – last week we spent many a long hour driving through Speyside and the Highlands visiting distilleries and finding some of the best whisky money can buy!

This week Jim Murray’s 2017 Whisky Bible is released – you can secure your copy from Master of Malt or The Whisky Exchange for £12.95 – I expected to say – but don’t expect to be able to buy any of the award-winning whiskies as they will be long sold out, however at least one of our suppliers rushed in some bottles of the Glen Grant 18 year old (don’t expect it to last long!).

Our picks this week Longmorn 21 Year Old 1994 (cask 11334) – Old Particular 21 year old cask strength/single cask Longmorn for under £3billion (under £80 in fact!) or whatever astronomical fee the official bottles sell for now – rumour has it that if official prices are that high then sales to indie bottlers will have dried up – so snap these up while you can afford them! – also DL bottle some pretty solid stuff and this one won’t disappoint.

This week we will be mostly drinking The Half-Century Blend – review to follow!
