New whisky releases Norway - July 2015

New whisky releases Norway - July 2015

glass_book_150On Friday July 3 we will see a total of 32 whiskies released in the Vinmonopolet monopoly stores. In the list below we have linked to our reviews for the ones we have already tested. Very interesting this month are the Akashi from Japan, Armorik Maitre de Chai from France, Nikka Coffey Grain from Japan, and Knob Creek Rye from the USA.

There are a lot of old and fine BenRiach single cask releases here, of which we have only tried one so far. That one was great fun, though.

A lot of you will also be interested in the re-launch of the Laphroaig 15 YO as part of the 200th Anniversary of the distillery.
