Glenfarclas 25 Year Old (TWE 20th Anniversary)
Made at the Glenfarclas distillery and matured in an Oloroso sherry cask, this Glenfarclas 25 Years ‘London Edition’ is a new limited edition for the 20th Anniversary of The Whisky Exchange. It has a specially-created label by TWE’s creative director Raj Chavda. Limited to 606 bottles.
Compass Box Bern’s
A new bespoke whisky from Compass Box for Bern’s steak house in Tampa, Florida. It contains plenty of different whiskies (Glenlossie, Clynelish, Tamdhu and Glen Ord are responsible for around 95%) finished in a single Madeira cask. Only 291 bottles will be available at 43.3% ABV.
GlenAllachie 15 Year Old
A new GlenAllachie 15 Years is filling the gap between the 12 Year Old and 18 Year Old expressions. It is a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry puncheons and hogsheads, bottled at 46% ABV. Probably the most heavily sherried whisky in the current line-up.
