Whisky New Releases 2017 Week 41

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. Clynelish 21 Year Old 1995 (cask 11223) – Cask Strength Collection (Signatory) cask strength refill sherry butt 20+ year old Cylenlish – more please!
  2. The Macallan Edition No.3 The No.1 and No.2 editions were pretty good so I expect that quality to continue in this somewhat quirky series
  3. Tullibardine 2005 (bottled 2017) – The Murray TBH I was going to say the Lagavulin DE but quality appears to have waned so I thought I’d revisit a distillery I haven’t sampled in some time, the age statement Tullibardine’s (well vintages at least) are here and they come cask strength too!

Sláinte!
