Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 48

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

This week I’ll start with our top picks;

  1. Glentauchers 1996 (bottled 2016) – their 19yo was excellent and still competitively priced at under £50
  2. Eddu Silver Sherry Cask Finish (La Maison du Whisky 60th Anniversary) love EDDU, love sherry casks at just over £60 I expect this will be something quite special
  3. Signatory Dufftown 18 Year Old 1997 (cask 19501) – Cask Strength Collection – cask strength single cask for under £70 a steal!

Officially we see Arran’s 21st anniversary not-21 year old! Benromach’s super-limited 1973 cask release, Bruichladdich’s trio of 10 year olds and Tandhu’s 2nd batch cask strength. Also Booker’s and Elijah Craig bourbons. Independents are quieter this week (not surprising after last weeks bulk releases)

Investment money goes to Port Ellen 1983 Duncan Taylor Tantalus howmuch longer are Port Ellen’s going to be available?

Sláinte,
