GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 7

GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 7

Then there’s also Batch 7 of GlenDronach Cask Strength. It seems to get a new label design, in a classic racing green. I had already noticed some subtle changes to single cask labels as well, small things. I guess the new owners are streamlining and updating where necessary.

 

 

Tobermory 15 Years Spanish oak / 21 Years Oloroso

Tobermory 15 Years Spanish Oak & Tobermory 21 Years Oloroso

Tobermory announced two new bottlings, the last in a series of six German exclusives (see my earlier announcement back in July 2016). The first is a Tobermory 15 Jahre Spanish Oak, finished for 4 years in a Spanish brandy cask. The other is the Tobermory 21 Years Oloroso finish, which spent 3 years in Oloroso casks. Both are bottled at 46.3% ABV and cost € 130 / € 200 respectively.

Longrow Red 11 Years Cabernet Franc

The 2018 edition of Longrow Red is an 11 year-old matured in Cabernet Franc wine casks from the Toren winery in South-Africa. It is bottled at 55.9% ABV.

Also in the pipeline from Springbank are a new batch of the Springbank 12 Years Cask Strength (now 56.3%), matured in 70% sherry casks and 30% bourbon barrels. Last but not least, the limited edition Springbank 25 Years 2018 Edition (46% as before).
