Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Years

Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Years

“A Monster of a Dram” says Ardbeg about its upcoming 5 years old Ardbeg Wee Beastie. It will be bottled at 47.4% ABV and is expected to land in stores early May for about € 45, probably as a core range expression.

 

 

Rebreast 27 Years - Ruby Port

Redbreast 27 Years Ruby Port

The latest Redbreast release is inspired by the Douro valley. Redbreast 27 Years contains some ruby Port casks (Iberian oak) and it’s now the oldest permanent expression in the core range, bottled at cask strength. Every batch will have slight differences. Available now in 11 markets for around € 500.

For the first time a batch of Single Malts of Scotland bottlings will be distributed exclusively in the US. Four of them will be launching in California in March and later in other States. In total 10 single casks will be released by ImpEx in the next few months.

I have samples on my desk, expect my reviews soon.
