While many of you may be slowing down for Christmas, we're still flat out like lizards drinking (have you seen a lizard drinking? They're flat out!) We've got FIVE new releases to shout about today! You can count them all on one hand; four from Speyside and one from Islay.
First up, a new release from Auchroisk, our second batch is a 20 Year Old. Expect no zombie apocalypse from this one though. It has a softly floral nose with hints of raspberry and icing sugar sweetness. The palate is lightly sweetened, with custard creams, giving way to the tartness of cooking apples and clove spices. Just 162 bottles at 47.9% abv have been filled.
Now if you came to see us at The Whisky Show in October, you may well have discovered the next three as we bottled a few cases especially for you because you are very special. Oh yes you are!
Our third batch from Allt-a-Bhainne is a 22 Year Old. There are just 175 bottles of this release, bottled at 49% abv and you can expect a grassy malt, with heather honey, and citrus notes: orange juice, and lemon curd perhaps.
Another third batch, but this time from the Glenlossie distillery. This 17 year old Speysider has a nose giving cake mix with hints of desiccated coconut. while floral notes and dry grasses follow. There are just 206 bottles of this release to go round, it's bottled at 48.4% abv.
Our third batch from Miltonduff is rather special. There are just 149 bottles of this 28 Year Old gentle Speyside Single Malt. It's both floral and fruity. It reminds us of summer hedgerows. Its soft sweetness is balanced by spicy chili.
Our final announcement and last third batch of today hails from Islay. Release the peat! It's a 6 Year Old Caol Ila. It's oily with a Juicyfurit chewing gum sweetness. There are 372 bottles at 52.2% abv in this release.
