Here are the new additions to our selection. Some are proving more popular than others, but they all stimulate discussion!

The new Burn Stewart standard bottlings which are non-chill filtered and with a new abv of 46.3% - Deanston 12yo, Tobermory 10yo and Ledaig 10yo.

Glen Garioch 12yo and a Small Batch Release 19yo from 1991.

Glenmorangie Finealta - recreation of early 1900's taste.

Some single cask bottlings from Duncan Taylor - Royal Lochnagar 1986 22yo, Macduff 1968 40yo, Glenrothes 1969 40yo Octave Cask, Tamdhu 1968 40yo, Tomatin 1965 43yo, Bowmore 1968 40yo (just heard that the distillery are to release a 40yo version with only 50 bottles available worldwide - the Dons could probably get a new central defender for less than the cost of this one!), Bunnahabhain 1968 40yo. And a couple of their finest blended whiskies, Black Bull 12yo 50% and the 33yo Rarest of the Rare which contains spirit from several closed distilleries.

Several bottlings as selected by the Bladnoch Forum - Balmenach 1983 26yo, Cragganmore 1991 19yo & Dailuaine 1983 26yo.

One that may only be available in Travel Retail - Balvenie 14yo Caribbean Rum Cask.

A 38yo Speymaly-Macallan from 1971 which replaced a 27yo from 1975 in our six decades of Macallan flight.

Several of the popular Whisky Exchange Elements bottlings - Ar1, Lg1 & Lp1, plus a return of the 1999 heavily peated 5yo Jura.

The last, I presume in the annual Port Charlotte bottlings from Bruichladdich - An Turas Mor.

The latest in the series of unpeated Caol Ila's, this one is 12yo, plus a 12yo from Hazelburn of Springbank (this one has been on the shelf for a while).

A couple of beauties from Compass Box - The Peat Monster and Spice Tree.

And finally, another one of our own exclusive label bottlings, a 25yo Caol Ila, finished in an octave cask and bottled for us by Duncan Taylor. Great peat offset by sweetness!
