New whisky releases Norway - March 2019

New whisky releases Norway - March 2019

background.png

Well, it is almost that happy time again. New whisky will wash over the shores of Norway. On Friday March 1 we will see 36 new releases, as listed below.

An exciting, and very expensive, series of Rare Casks from Bruichladdich this time around. Also exciting to see a Rye from Sweden (Spirit of Hven’s Hvenus). Looking forward to tasting this in a few days. We will now also see the release of the first three bottlings from That Boutique-y Whisky Company in Norway.

As always I’ve added links to any reviews already published here on Whisky Saga.
