Kavalan Vinho Barrique 2012 (TWE exclusive)
A cask strength Kavalan distilled in June 2012 and aged entirely in a Portuguese wine barrique which held both red and white wines before being re-toasted. A single cask that is exclusively available from The Whisky Exchange. Stay tuned for my tasting notes later this week.
Speyside Region 1973 (Whisky Agency for TWE)
I mentioned this one back in September as it was one of the show bottlings for the TWE Whisky Show, but this excellent undisclosed Speyside Malt is now available from their website. Yes, I’ll review this as well soon.

Things that may not have been widely announced but that grabbed my attention in shops recently…
