Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 24

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. Rock Oyster 18 Year Old the delicious Rock Oyster Island blended malt from Douglas Laing comes of age
  2. Cambus 25 Year Old 1991 (cask 13051) – The Sovereign – actually a tough choice between this and their Invergordon 40 Year Old 1977 – relative price the latter is on point whereas for a closed distillery the Cambus looks like great value-for-money.
  3. Knockdhu 10 Year Old 2006 as distillery official releases are anCnoc, there are many of us who maybe haven’t tried a Knockdhu – yet here’s your chance thanks to Cadenheads insistence on using the original distillery names where possible on their releases

Sláinte!
