Caperdonich 25 Year Old & 30 Year Old

Chivas Brothers unveiled the Caperdonich 25 Years and Caperdonich 30 Years, two remaining expressions in its Secret Speyside collection available in travel retail only.

The 25 Years is peated (45.5% ABV cask strength), the 30 Years is a classic unpeated expression (51.1% ABV). Both are bottled from first-fill bourbon barrels. The oldest expression will cost around € 900, the younger one will set you back around € 450.



Blair Athol Distillery Exclusive

Blair Athol Distillery Exclusive

It seems Diageo is working hard on distillery exclusive bottlings. In the past few months we already had new releases from Oban, Cragganmore, Glenkinchie, Glen Ord, Clynelish and Royal Lochnagar, now they launch a Blair Athol Distillery Exclusive.

It is matured in refill, rejuvenated and ex-bourbon casks and 6000 bottles at 48% ABV will be available for around € 105. It says Batch 01 on the label so this will probably become an ongoing series.



Powers Irish Whiskey

Powers Irish Whiskey

Powers has unveiled a new identity for its Irish whiskey range. It will debut in March on the Three Swallow and John Lane expressions and later on the Gold Label.
