Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 23

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. Bladnoch Adela 15 Year Old Another expression from Bladnoch’s older stock by their newest owner, matured in Oloroso sherry casks, read our review.
  2. House of Hazelwood 21 Year Old Easily the best of the House of Hazelwood blends from William Grants, the 21 has a superb balance and plenty of flavour making the extra £50 for the 25yo money wasted imho.
  3. Caol Ila 14 Year Old 2002 (cask 16-242) – Hidden Casks Collection Sherried cask strength Caol Ila, yes please!

This week Glendronach release Batch 15 of their yearly single cask releases – these won’t stay in shops long so if you see one you want then buy it asap!

Also more of Glenfarclas’s Family Casks out this week – the colour on the 1990 alone makes me want to try it!

Sláinte!
