Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 46

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

Official Releases this week have a wine-flavoured finish from BenRiach 22 Year Old Moscatel Wood, GlenDronach 14 Year Old Marsala Cask Finish and Springbanks Hazelburn 9 Year Old 2007 – Barolo Cask Finish. Organic whisky arrives to in the shape of Deanston 15 Year Old Organic adding Deanston to the small but growing list of organic producers.

We have Bourbon from Blanton’s and FEW this week – with the latter being a collaboration bottled with The Flaming Lips – so one for the musical whisky collectors.

In the Independent bottlings, La Maison Du Whisky’s 60th Anniversary bottlings left a lor to drool over, including the Isle of Jura 1975 (one that I suspect would interest Tom at Tom’s Whisky Reviews!), also great ranges from Master of Malts single cask bottlings and Signatory’s Cask Strength Collection including another super-priced Longmorn!

Investment whisky = aged Macallan’s, though MoM’s appear priced to stifle the resale market at least…
