Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 7

Welcome to The Whiskyphiles New Releases, our weekly report on the best of both the official and independently bottled whisky recently released. Another bumper crop this week with plenty of diverse and interesting bottles released.

Our top picks this week are a little on the mid-range to more expensive side but represent three great single cask whiskies by three different Independent bottlers. Likely to be unique and always much more affordable than their officially bottled companions:

  1. Glen Garioch 21 Year Old 1995 cask 11471 Old Particular from Douglas Laing
  2. Tormore 1988 28 Year Old Single Malts of Scotland from Malts of Scotland
  3. Glenrothes 26 Year Old 1990 cask 19020 Cask Strength from Signatory
