A round-up of the hottest new whiskies stocked at Master of Malt this month including a very nice 25 year old release from Cutty Sark, which has packaging adorned with scenes from the Rabbie Burns poem - Tam o’ Shanter - and comes with a book of more than 50 illustrations by the late Alexander Goudie.
Also a blended Scotch released to mark World Whisky Day 2013 which is coming up on 18th May and a tranche of new indie bottlings from Old Malt Cask, Connoisseurs Choice and Berry Brothers & Rudd.
With literally thousands of new whiskies released each year it’s often difficult to keep track of new bottlings as they become available. Add to this the fact that many limited release whiskies are snapped up by eager collectors across the world and it’s probably fair to say that some great whiskies are passing you by undetected.
Luckily for you we scour the internet monitoring the latest releases from all the top whisky retailers, which makes finding new, exciting whiskies that little bit easier. For the first in a new series of roundups, which we’ll entitle “What’s hot”, we take a look at the best new releases on The Whisky Exchange and recommend our best buys.
