A new contender in the ultra-premium blend category has arrived in the form of Chivas Regal 25yo, but you'll need to be quick if you want one - there are only a few cases for the UK.  Elsewhere we have some quality aged malts from G & M and an indie bottling of cask strength Glenrothes from a first-fill sherry hogshead.

Blended Scotch Whisky
Jim Murray was very taken with this recently-launched Chivas Regal 25yo, describing it thus: "beautiful delivery...unbelievably juicy and mouthwatering...unadulterated class...leaves you demanding another glass. Brilliant!"

A fancy new facelift for Ardmore with this new bottling, which underwent a secondary maturation in Quarter casks; and the very beautiful new Glenmorangie 25 year-old.  A small crop this week, but both very interesting.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A young peated Speysider from the excellent Ardmore distillery, this has been finished in quarter casks to speed up maturation. Gold Medal in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Rounded and luxurious, Glenmorangie 25 yo has some lovely floral and citrus flavours alongside the spices and toasty sweetness one would expect from a quarter century in the wood. A brilliantly-made dram that lives up to the luxury image LVMH are pushing for the brand.

More goodies for this week, this time including a new sherried Balvenie, a heavily-sherried vintage Laphroaig and a snazzy new bottle for an old favourite, Gentleman Jack.  Oh, and the new Preludium as well.

This 17yo Sherry Oak Balvenie is an unusual expression as most Balvenie has a significant proportion of American oak in the mix.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Dark, sherried malt from one of the best distilleries in Speyside. As always, Glenfarclas remains one of the best value malts on the market, especially compared to Macallan. Top-quality, consistently great whisky, and with two free glasses this makes a great gift.

Gold Medal Winner(The Malt Maniacs Awards 2007)
They say Laphroaig is like Marmite - you either love it or you hate it. That goes double for sherried Laphroaig, but this cask-strength vatting of five Oloroso casks came first in the Malt Maniacs Awards 2007.

Well worth the extra, Gentleman Jack is charcoal-mellowed twice, before and after the ageing process, resulting in a cleaner, more refined end product. Packaged in a smart Monogram-esque bottle.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A replacement for the enormously popular Cigar Reserve, we are sure this will be just as successful. An enticing heather and chocolate nose leads to a delicious rich palate with a silky texture and plenty of spice on the finish. Worryingly easy to drink.

Introduced in 2007, this 18yo Jura was brought in to replace the discontinued 21 year-old. Often overlooked for it's neighbour, Islay, Jura is a beautiful island full of deer and is where George Orwell finished writing Nineteen Eighty-Four.

A beautifully-presented old Macallan from our friends at DT. With a miniature, a glass and a lovely laquered box that smells like the inside of a new car. Awesome.

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Another hit from the Super Premium releases from Diageo, this muscly 20 year-old is a world away from the more middle-of-the-road 10 year-old expression. A delicious sweet and spicy palate, with supple, polished old-school malt character.

Another raft of new entries for our Lost Distilleries section, this time courtesy of Duncan Taylor.  Some very interesting old grain whiskies here, including a Carsebridge that carried off a 'Best In Class' Gold award at this year's IWSC.  On top of that we have very old bottlings from three classic distilleries that are thankfully still with us:  Glenlivet, Glen Grant and Highland Park.

A rare opportunity to taste an affordable old dram from this Eastern Highland distillery (also known as Hillside) that closed in 1985 and was demolished in 1996. This expression from Duncan Taylor is a long-aged, heavily-sherried affair.
