Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 3

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

Whisky blenders and judges alike take note! Until they are sold out, Master of Malt are offering a chance to take part in the 2016 battle of the blends in conjunction with Whisky Magazine. Simply add a tasting set to your basket for 1 whole English penny and the set is yours!

For our top picks this week it looks like Douglas Laing have swept the board – though they do have the lions share of this weeks releases too 😉

We opted for:

  1. Auchroisk 8 Year Old 2008 cask 11469 Provenance with notes of caramel, honey, sticky toffee pudding and chocolate! We love these distillery/spirit led releases as there is too much unneccessary wood tinkering going on with whisky these days.
  2. Bunnahabhain 8 Year Old Premier Barrel a piece of Victoriana in your pocket, these ceramic decanters usually are filled with much more expensive offerings than this delicious and stereotypically coastal Bunnahabhain malt.
  3. Laphroaig 18 Year Old 1998 cask 1159 Old Particular whoop whoop Indie Laphroaig alert, probably sold out by the time you finish reading this (sorry!) but snag one if you can an 18yo single cask Laphroaig not bottled by the distillery itself all for a shade under £125.

Sláinte!
