Smoky sherried savings on this Islay classic! at The Whisky Shop – Scotch Whisky News

Smoky sherried savings on this Islay classic!

Bowmore’s proximity to the sea plays a vital role in shaping the iconic character of the spirit; the casks breathing in that salty sea air. But it is the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Year Old its rich, deep colour and a palate of delicious dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a tell-tale wisp of Islay smoke. Down from £67.00 to £44.99! Add something new to your whisky shelf…

Bowmore Distillery has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, a sea loch that opens out into the Atlantic Ocean, since 1779. The distillery’s proximity to the sea plays a vital role in shaping the final character of the spirit, which breathes in the salty sea air all the while it’s maturing. Matured in an inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it’s the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old its rich, deep colour.

It exudes an aroma of delicious dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a tell-tale wisp of Islay smoke. It is wonderfully full bodied and rich with a complex and warming finish.’

Laphroaig 16 Year Old at The Whisky Shop – Scotch Whisky News

Laphroaig 16 Year Old

Originally released in 2015 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the distillery, it was so well-received that they decided to release more! This 16-year-old has spent its life in ex-bourbon barrels, allowing for the whisky’s smoky profile to soften over the years, rounded off by the vanilla notes from the American Oak. It is bottled at 48% abv without chill filtration or added colouring. A limited release and slightly mellower version of the iconic Islay single malt from Laphroaig.

£87.95 … buy now →

There are rich leather aromas with oaky spices, maple syrup and roasted chestnuts. The taste is honey and treacle sweet with that classic Laphroaig character of creosote and salted seaweed. Plenty of smoky notes and a hint of medicinal character. A lovely example of an Islay dram!

Foundry Distilling Co. and Surly Brewing Co. Join Forces to Create Furious Whiskey – American Whisky News

Foundry Distilling Co. and Surly Brewing Co. Join Forces to Create Furious Whiskey

West Des Moines, IA (June 15, 2021) – What do you get when a brewery that doesn’t settle teams up with a distillery that’s driven to create exceptional spirits, and they make a whiskey out of a renowned beer? The answer: something truly remarkable. Foundry Distilling Co. and Surly Brewing Co. have collaborated to create Furious Whiskey, distilled from the wort of Surly’s Furious IPA beer. This whiskey will be released on July 10th, 2021.

“This has been a fantastic collaboration with our Midwestern neighbor, Surly Brewing Company,” said Scott Bush, owner of Foundry Distilling Company. “We know whiskey enthusiasts will love this take on their iconic, hoppy, and aggressive Furious IPA.”

Surly’s Furious IPA’s aggressively in-your-face hoppy and citrusy nature has been distilled into an American single malt whiskey with every ounce of zesty citrus sweetness as its beer counterpart. Surly brought the beer’s wort to Foundry Distilling Co., where it was fermented, distilled, and aged for 24 months in new 30-gallon charred American Oak barrels to produce the whiskey. In total, Foundry has made 1,000 cases in a limited run that pushes the envelope of what makes a spirit unique.

Furious Whiskey Tasting Notes:


  • Earthy
  • Citrus
  • Caramel
  • Malt Forward


  • Orange Zest
  • Taffy Sweetness
  • Bready


  • Zesty

Foundry Distilling Co. is hosting a launch party at their distillery in Historic Valley Junction, Iowa, on Saturday, July 10th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to celebrate the Furious Whiskey release. This event is open to the public, and the first 100 attendees will get a complimentary branded rocks glass. At the event, people can sample Furious Whiskey and Furious IPA while meeting with Foundry Distilling Co.’s head distiller Greg Biagi and Surly Brewing Founder Omar Ansari.

Those looking to secure a bottle of this one-of-a-kind whiskey before the launch date can do so by pre-ordering online at BrewerDistillerAlliance.com. People that have pre-ordered will have two weeks from the release date to claim their bottle.

This collaboration with Surly Brewing Co. was made possible through Foundry Distilling Co.’s Brewer-Distiller Alliance initiative, which aims to work with outstanding breweries across the nation to produce remarkable, distinctive whiskeys from their beer recipes. The breweries produce the wort using their recipes, and Foundry then ferments, distills, and barrel ages the spirit to create whiskey. Foundry Distilling Company and its partners have generated a diverse collection of exclusive limited-edition whiskeys.

Foundry is also working with Surly on another special whiskey, based on the brewery’s Axe Man IPA, that is scheduled to be released during the 3rd quarter of 2022.

All-American Affair: Craft Whiskey Comes of Age at K&L California – American Craft Whiskey News

All-American Affair: Craft Whiskey Comes of Age

The world of American whiskey continues to expand exponentially, but it is difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. Considering the hundreds of new distilleries that have opened over the last decade, it is quite literally impossible to keep up with every new brand and release. On top of that, prices for many of the legacy producers are skyrocketing faster than meme stocks going to the moon. Fortunately, we are here to help. While we continue to fight the good fight on holding prices down, we are also working our supplier relationships for the finest single casks and access to the most exciting new whiskies the American craft whiskey scene has to offer.

Brora Triptych (1972, 1977 and 1982) at The Whisky Exchange – Scotch Whisky News

It’s a big month for whisky – the legendary Brora distillery, dormant since 1983, has reopened its doors and fired up its stills once more.

To mark the occasion, Brora’s parent company, Diageo, has released the extremely limited-edition Brora Triptych – a trio of whiskies carefully crafted to showcase three different facets and eras of Brora’s smoky, Highland style: 1982 The Timeless Original, 1977 The Age of Peat and 1972 The Elusive Legacy.

Joining this impressive set of whiskies are a number of its compatriots from some of Diageo’s best-known distilleries, including a pair of well-aged drams from Talisker and a brand-new 54-year-old single malt from Singleton.


Released in 2021 to mark the momentous re-opening of Brora distillery, Triptych contains three incredible, rare whiskies from this legendary distillery.

1982 The Timeless Original is a 38-year-old single malt that shows off the distillery’s famous waxy character, with a very delicate low level of peat. Aromas of sherbet lemons and fresh green grass fill the nose, complemented by notes of oak spice, beeswax, citronella candles and gunpowder throughout the palate.

1977 The Age of Peat is from a time where Brora increased the amount of peat used in making their whiskies to meet the rising demand for blended whisky. Elegant aromas of creamy vanilla, beeswax and crunchy green apples fill the nose, complemented by notes of smouldering peat smoke, ginger cake, oak spice and heathery smoke throughout the palate.

1972 The Elusive Legacy is a 48-year-old single malt that shows off an elusive and rarely seen style of earthy, peaty whisky only made in a few brief periods throughout the distillery’s history. Aromas of oaky spice and peach cobbler fill the nose, complemented by notes of rich malt, serrano ham, tobacco, coal dust and earthy smoke throughout the palate.



Every bottle of Glengoyne single malt is special, but imagine how extra-special it would be if it featured your own unique message on the label.

Whether you want to surprise someone special, commemorate a significant occasion or impress your friends, make it personal with a bottle of Glengoyne 10 Year Old or 12 Year Old.
