Laphroaig 28 Years
The new release in the series of limited editions from Laphroaig (check my review of Laphroaig 27 Years and Laphroaig 32 Years) will be the Laphroaig 28 Year Old. It is matured in quarter casks, ex-bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry butts and bottled at cask strength 44.4% ABV.
Kilchoman single casks
In the UK we’ve noticed two new Kilchoman single casks. One is the Kilchoman 10 Years 2007 for The Whisky Exchange, a sherry cask #401/2007 bottled at 58.5%, available for around € 145.
The other is the Kilchoman 5 Years 2001 for Master of Malt, a bourbon cask #24/2011 bottled at 58.3% ABV, available for around € 105.
Glenmorangie The Cadboll
From The Glenmorangie comes a new travel retail expression named Glenmorangie Cadboll. It is matured in ex-bourbon oak and finished in French sweet wine barriques (Muscat and Sémillon). It is the third permanent expression in the Legends Collection, after Duthac and Tayne, available for around € 85.
Things that may not have been widely announced but that I saw popping up in shops recently:
- Springbank 1996 sherry bomb
- Family Silver 1972 (Cooper’s Choice)
- A new batch of Redbreast 12 Years Cask Strength
- Plenty of rare old bottles from collections at TWE
