Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A new vintage release for An Cnoc (formerly Knockdhu, lest we forget) and early reports are very encouraging. More good work from Inverhouse.

70cl / 56.5%
Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Another of Arran's new finishes, this time it's Premier Cru Bourgogne. Doesn't say whether that was Rouge or Blanc, but judging by the colour of the box and the ruby tints in the liquid, we're going for Rouge.

70cl / 57%
Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A new 57% abv Arran (and we don't want any pedantic emails to tell us that 100 proof should be 57.06%, so leave it). Arran seem to have upped their game recently, so this should be good.

70cl / 53.1%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A cask-strength Bowmore 16yrs, this time matured in Port casks. This is a lovely colour and we have high hopes for this bottling. A 'limited' release - just the 18000 bottles.
£66.95 Inc. VAT
(£55.79 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 57.6%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A smartly-packaged cask-strength release from a distillery that is beginning to get more of the recognition it deserves. This should be a treat.

70cl / 60%
Japanese Single Malt Whisky
A single cask of twenty year-old cask-strength (60%!) Yamazaki matured in a Mizunara butt. Mizunara is also known as Quercus Mongolica, meaning this has been fully matured in new Japanese oak from the Shiretoko peninsula - how exciting is that?! The colour is beautiful as well: this should be spectacular.

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson RIP

All of us at The Whisky Exchange are very saddened to hear of the death of Michael Jackson. Michael revealed last year that he had been suffering from Parkinson's Disease for more than a decade. 

His erudite, witty and frequently enlightening writing on both beer and whisky will be much missed.  We'll be raising a glass of something special to a true pioneer of drinks journalism.

70cl / 40%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The first edition of Laphroaig 25yo; this is a very mellow, restrained expression with pretty delicate peat (for 'Froyg anyway), some baked apple notes and a gentle nuttiness. A malt to unwind with.

NEW BLACK BOWMORE TO BE RELEASED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In October, a new Bowmore Black will be released, the "2nd Edition" (?? I thought there'd been three already, but it's not my party).  The whisky is from the same 1964 vintage, and from the same batch of oloroso sherry casks as the original releases, but now older.  At 42+ years, it will be interesting to see what this legendary malt will be like in comparison to the earlier versions.  Hope it's still got legs - if the quality is anything like the previous versions, this will be the whisky event of the year.

The last 1964 oloroso sherry cask was released as part of the Trilogy Series back in 2000.  The retail price of this new BB will be around £1800.00 inc-vat.  We are accepting reserve orders now, but obviously we can only confirm your order once we have the stock, so we will allocate on a 'first come, least likely to be crying into their cornflakes' basis.  You can e-mail your order on sales@thewhiskyexchange.com - Good Luck!

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The second release from Ballechin, the heavily-peated malt made at Edradour. This has been fully matured in first-fill Madeira puncheons to add character and is bottled at its (quite impressive) natural colour.
