New whisky releases Norway - May 2018On Friday May 4 we will have 71 new whisky products available in Norway. Admittedly a few of these are re-releases of older products, but still – there is a lot to delight in here.

I have noticed a few odd bits of info in the official registrations at our monopoly. Maybe someone out there can help answer these:

  • Duncan Taylor releases a 6 year old Girvan in their Rare Auld selection. Does not sound very old or very rare to me..
  • Highland Queen 1561 30 YO (!) and priced just a few Norwegian kroner above the NAS version? Wow!
  • The Irish are not bound by the rules of SWA but still, this product name will turn a few whisky heads I presume: Hyde No. 6 – 18 YO Single Malt & 8 YO Single Grain Irish Whiskey Sherry Finish

I will review more of the new whiskies over the coming couple of weeks. Stay tuned and good luck!
