Teeling 27 Year Old – Whisky Exchange exclusive
The Whisky Exchange has just bottled a Teeling 27 Year Old single cask, distilled in 1991 and bottled at 48.9% from sherry cask #6838 (though not too heavy, or so it seems). It promises to display these wonderful notes of tropical fruits, with added complexity from the sherry. Available only from The Whisky Exchange.

Glendronach 15 Years Revival comeback
The GlenDronach 15 Years Revival, originally launched for the revival of the distillery in 2009, is now… having a revival after the break in 2015. The 2018 release follows the same recipe and is now available at the distillery. After four weeks it will be available from retailers as well.
Benromach Cask #1

All 575 bottles will be sold at the Visitor’s Centre for £ 1000 – all profits will be donated to charitable causes.
