Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 45

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

Official release this week from Edradour, Tomatin, Spirit of Hven, The Lakes distillery, Jim Beam, Kings County Bourbon (from New York) and Blantons. From the Indie bottlers, Signatory’s Clynelish looks the best value for money, though I always have a soft spot for a Glenturret or two also. This week Chivas Brothers blended malt stood out as something a little different though I would rather spend my money on Douglas Laings 21yo Timorous Beastie blended highland malt.
