Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 42

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

This week welcomes a revised edition of Aeneas Macdonald’s book Whisky courtesy of Ian Buxton, after Ingvar’s Malt Whisky Yearbook – this is possibly the best book on whisky worth reading (well maybe aside from Michael Jackson’s Malt Whisky Companion of course)

Official releases are a bit slim on the ground this week and are scattered globally, from France/Armorik, Scotland/Arran and another bathc of Glenfarclas 30 Year Old , US/Four Roses and The Netherlands/Millstone. William Grants also release batch 2 of their Ghosted Reserve blend which I have been hearing good things about!

From the Indies there is a 45yo Bunnahabhain, a magnum of 25yo Ardbeg, Douglas Laing’s 2nd Yula release and G&M’s Littlemill.

Our picks this week are Arran’s Smugglers II and Pearls of Scotland Glen Garioch 21yo.
