Whisky New Releases 2016 Week 50

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

A bumper crop this week but be quick as Christmas delivery dates/times are closing fast.

Not one but two prestige sets released this week with Balvenies DCS and G&M’s Speyside collection (which we will be sampling and reporting on soon!), plus Parker’s Heritage, Benromach’s ’74, Arran’s White Stag 2,Tullibardine’s ’70 Custodian and Hunter Laing’s cryptically named offering!

Back in the real (affordable) world our picks this week are:

  1. Writers Tears Cask Strength (2016 Release) bit of oomph added to a great whiskey
  2. Irish Whiskey Magazine Subscription to read whilst drinking No.1
  3. Yamazakura Blended Whisky the newest Japanese whisky on the block – and hopefully with some quality
