Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 20

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. The Macallan 18 Year Old 2017 Release 18 yo Macallan – famously described as the Rolls Royce of whisky by Michael Jackson.
  2. Longrow Red 13 Year Old Malbec Cask Finish Snap this up where you see it – incredibly well priced considering the collectability of these ‘Red’ Longrow releases
  3. Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch 58 An old favourite and never fails to impress, classic sherried cask strength Aberlour – as it was intended.

Sláinte!
