After the frantic madness of Christmas, it's with great pleasure that we welcome you to the first new products update of 2009!  Hope you all got what you wanted for Christmas - you can read how Tim F got on with his festive selections over on the TWE Blog.

Some great new products this week, including Bruichladdich's latest offering, Resurrection - and don't forget that you can see them using their X4 spirit to power a car (you need to scroll down the page a bit to get to the relevant article) on Oz & James's latest adventure tomorrow (Tuesday 20th).

Also this week we have some interesting new wine finishes from Edradour, a clutch of bottlings from Signatory, two very interesting new American Whiskeys (only one of which is a bourbon - the other being the first ever Straight Colorado whiskey) and a clutch of gems from Douglas Laing, including what must be the most limited edition of a Glenury ever - just 37 bottles released.  No rest for the wicked, then...

A very unusual whiskey from the US - Stranahan's Colorado Straight Whiskey is the first (legal) whiskey to be made in the Rocky Mountains from malted barley in a bizarre pot/column still combo. The cool wraparound labels are signed by the distiller, known only as Jake.

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A long-aged Bowmore 1980 bottled by Signatory for their 'Cask' series. This is a vatting of two Bourbon casks - should be excellent.

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
Another excellent heavily-peated Bunnahabhain matured in a single refill sherry butt. Last year's release of this was a great whisky - much more peaty than is normal for this distillery, along with the extra power - a real winner.
