New: Whisky Jury cognac / Whisky Exchange exclusives / Tobermory 17 Oloroso

Cognac Prunier 1960 - 1961 - 1979 (The Whisky Jury)

Prunier cognac for The Whisky Jury

The Whisky Jury ventures into cognac with the launch of three Prunier selections:

The label is a modern interpretation of an old Prunier 1929 and looks really classy. The two oldest versions come in a stunning hand-blown bottle with a wax seal and a spare stopper, packaged in a heavy wooden box, all very nicely executed.

Besides these cognacs, The Whisky Jury also released Eye Land Pork 1998, a distillate driven Orkney expression from a refill hogshead. Expect my reviews soon…


Balblair 2005 / Arran 1996 (The Whisky Exchange)

Balblair 2005 + Arran 1996 for The Whisky Exchange

The Whisky Exchange has two new single cask exclusives. One is a Balblair 2005 cask #213, bottled from what was probably an ex-bourbon cask.

The other one is an Arran 1996 cask #757. The cask type is unknown but TWE claims it is a wine cask of some kind (the colour would indicate sherry, but maybe it was another wine – they experimented with all kinds of casks back then).


Tobermory 17 Years Oloroso

Tobermory 17 Years Oloroso Matured

Tobermory will soon release a Tobermory 17 Year Old matured in Oloroso casks. This limited edition comes at 55.9% ABV and will display blackcurrants and tropical fruits, as well as walnuts and creamy toffee.
