Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 16

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

Our top picks this week are:

  1. Hazelburn 13 Year Old actually probably sold out already as is Glengyle 8 year old cask strength – grab either if you see them!
  2. Tormore 28 Year Old 1988 cask 602 Single Malts of Scotland not featured for a while and looking for something different, Tormore is a fine example of a Spey malt and this well-aged bottling looks great value for money
  3. Carsebridge 34 Year Old 1982 cask 74689 Cask Strength sherry-matured Grain from a closed distillery – yes please!

This week we also see some great closed Grains released by Signatory from Caledonian , Carsebridge and Mosstowie !

Investment releases also from Benromach , Deanston , Gordon & MacPhail, Hibiki and Tamdhu for those with deep or well-filled pockets 😉

Sláinte!
