It is with regret to inform our Swedish friends that shipping to Sweden has been stopped until further notice. We are in discussions with the Swedish Tax Agency on a working format for shipments and the levy of Swedish duty and vat on top of the prices shown on the TWE website.

We hope to get an answer in the next few weeks.

A final flourish at the end of this week's abundant new releases, with a brace of Edradours, an export-astrength Canadian club... and the hotly-anticipated Hibiki 12yo!  You'll be pleased to hear that we loved this - check out Tim F's tasting notes here on the TWE Blog!

The second crop of new arrivals jostling for your attention comes courtesy of the splendid Signatory, with another bounteous array of single cask delights.  Nice to see unsung heroes like Glen Elgin and Inchgower getting a look-in - plus some really rare stuff (Glenlochy, Inverleven and the like).  Hats off once again to Mr. Symington.

Another crop of hot new releases this week.  The big news, of course, is the return of Glendronach - now happily under the stewardship of Billy Walker and the group responsible for the stunning turnaround at Benriach.  Both the new 15yo Revival and the 18yo Allardice are 100% Oloroso matured, and have already been garnering rave reviews, which is nice for the sherryheads out there.

In other news, we have a veritable cornucopia of new wine-finished Bruichladdichs and Murray McDavid releases [Er, is that really news?  Ed.] ; a nosing kit designed to help you get your olfactory system up to speed and banish those annoying moments when you can't put your finger on what it is you're smelling;  the first ever official single malt from French distillery Glann an Mor; a couple of travel retail specials from Glengoyne and Glenrothes, and a sherried Linkwood from Regis Lemaitre. 

Last but not least, we have some pretty remarkable Port Ellen from Old Bothwell.  This intensely fruity, spicy beauty has no shortage of phenols behind it's sweet extreior.  You can read Tim F's review of this one here on the TWE Blog.

Glendronach Revival is the culmination of nearly a year's hard work by the distillery's new owners, replicating their success at Benriach. This Oloroso-matured Revival received a whopping 92 points from the highly-esteemed Whiskyfun website.

A Madeira-finished vintage release from Benromach, this time from 2000. Although called a 'finish', we'd argue that this is more accurately a double maturation, as the second maturation in Madeira wood lasted a full four years.

As the name suggests, this is a peated Benriach that's been finished in a rum cask. Dolium volvitur, if you'll pardon the pun. Received 91 points from Jim Murray (caveat emptor), who made it sound pretty tasty. Apologies for the poor Latin jokes, Mercator aliquantulus dementis.

"A French single malt, you say? North coast of Brittany? Glann ar Mor means 'By the Sea' in Bretonese? Artisan production with wooden washtubs, worm tubs and "100% Live Flame"? Why, the bally cheek of it!." Joking aside, this is the first release of Glann ar Mor single malt - a single bourbon cask, 305 bottles of 3 yo French malt whisky. Historic stuff.
