We've got a whole load of new whiskies to show off - including a handful of first batches!
If you're a regular visitor to our humble blog, you'll probably be used to a bit of a pre-amble when it comes to our posts. Well, we're going to cut the pre-amble short today, because there's a lot of brand new bottlings to get through in just one blog post!
Let's start with the collection of first batches we have to show off. Firstly, we've got our first bottling of Tamdhu single malt! This terrific Tamdhu was aged for 28 years before we bottled it up at 46.8% ABV. Only 270 of these beauties were produced, and they're an absolute knock-out!
Next up, we've got our first bottling from Glen Ord! A 20 year old expression, boasting honey and vanilla by the bucket-load. This was bottled at 51.9%, and 293 bottles were produced. Shout-outs to the Porteus Mill. Fine bit of equipment, that.
Say hello (or "Ahoy-hoy!", rather) our very first bottling of Smögen whisky! This well-sherried single malt is 5 years old, and has been bottled at 49.7% ABV with a tiny outturn of just 117 bottles. Grab one before they're all gone!
Let's head back to Scotland for our next one - the first That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottling of Tomatin! This 21 year old expression from the distillery in the Highlands was bottled at 47.4% ABV, and with an outturn of 304 bottles.
We've also managed to get our hands on an incredible Inchgower to bottle up for you fine people! 285 bottles of this excellent 26 year old Speysider were made, bottled at 48,7% ABV.
Our final first batch is very exciting indeed - it's a Glenlivet! Oh yes, we've independently bottled an absolutely smashing 27 year old Glenlivet single malt, presented at 48.7% ABV. Just 111 bottles were produced.
It's not all firsts today - we've also got some fantastic follow-up batches of some of our favourites, including our fourth batch of Clynelish! This fascinating 24 year old single malt was bottled at 49.7% ABV, with an outturn of 267 bottles.
It's been a little while since our first bottling of Aberfeldy hit the shelves, so we figured it was about time we did an other - and it is golden! It's 21 years old, and 261 bottles were produced at 48.9% ABV.
Let's change it up a little bit and unveil a new single grain, eh? It's our fifth batch of single grain Scotch whisky from the North British distillery! It was matured for 26 years before we bottled it up with an outturn of only 144 bottles at 50.4% ABV.
Last but by no means least, we have our second batch of our Irish Single Malt #2! We're still keeping tight-lipped about where this one came from, but rest assured, this 12 year old Irish whiskey is wonderful never-the-less. 429 bottles were produced, presented at 48.6% ABV.
