Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 37

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 weeks are:

  1. Imperial 1997 (bottled 2017) – Gordon & MacPhail sherried, closed, Imperial; sadly reduced to 43% but still under £100 a bottle – the last couple we have tried of these have been wonderful!
  2. Caol Ila 18 Year Old Unpeated (Special Release 2017) of the two affordable special releases this year  – an 18yo unpeated Caol Ila for less than £100 also seems a bargain!
  3. Longmorn 1992 (bottled 2017) (cask 17029) – Malts of Scotland – Sherry HHD Longmorn – yes please!

Sláinte!
