A new feature on the blog, I am going to start a fairly regular (I am not going to say weekly as there is no guarantee of whiskies available that regularly) round up of some of the recent new Whisky releases on the market.
Big Peat Unveils His Feis Ile 2019 Limited Edition
Douglas Laing & Co., leading independent Scotch Whisky firm, today announces Big Peat's Limited Edition for Feis Ile, Islay's Annual Festival of Malt and Music.
The innovative packaging for the commemorative bottling features the faces of 400 of Big Peat's pals from all over the world, after fans of the brand were invited to submit their selfies via an online competition.
The specialist spirit within is a unique batch of the cult Islay Whisky, carrying a marriage of Single Malts distilled at Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and even the long-closed Port Ellen distillery, amongst others.

Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has announced the much-anticipated launch of Cask Strength Batch No. 007.
The latest release in the Glengoyne Cask Strength series, Cask Strength Batch No. 007 is the first in the collection to feature a small proportion of bourbon barrels in the cask recipe.
Bottled un-chillfiltered at 58.9% ABV, Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 has been crafted using a combination of first-fill European and American oak Oloroso sherry casks, refill casks and bourbon barrels.
