New: Laphroaig 16 Years // Daftmill 2006 // Macallan Estate

Laphroaig 16 Year Old

Laphroaig 16 Year Old

A re-release perhaps, but the Laphroaig 16 Year Old is coming back. It was already available in travel retail in 2015, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the distillery, and now it will be a wide-scale release. While the previous 16 was not particularly great, this time it is bottled at 48% ABV this time (well done).




The Macallan Estate

A new limited edition The Macallan Estate will be available from July 2019. It is made with home-grown barley from the Easter Elchies estate, which is distilled only once a year over seven days, matured in sherry casks. Too bad it is only 43% ABV.

It will be around € 220 and available for pre-order from The Whisky Shop.



Daftmill 2006 Summer Batch 2019

Daftmill 2006 – Summer Batch 2019

In the summer of 2019 Daftmill will release another Daftmill 2006 Summer Batch. They already had a similar release last year which was very well received. This time the label specifically mentions it is 12 years of age. A total of 1680 bottles will be available.
