Dalmunach, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

We’re delighted to announce that we’ll shortly be stocking our first ever Dalmunach on Whisky-Online! Dalmunach Octave 2016 4-year-old is an independent bottling by Duncan Taylor from Chivas Brothers’ Dalmunach distillery, built on the site of the old Imperial distillery in Speyside. Dalmunach was commissioned in 2014 and is a large and beautifully-designed distillery with the capability of producing a whopping 10 million litres of spirit a year from four pairs of very large stills. By contrast, the Dalmunach Octave bottlings from Duncan Taylor are exceptionally small scale, being finished in tiny Octave casks holding just 60-70 litres. Octaves, as...

Industry News, Japanese Whisky -

Exciting news today about Japanese whisky!  Changes are afoot in the rules regarding what can be labelled Japanese whisky - and what cannot. This is in response to the previously lax system in Japan regarding goods of Japanese origin. Under the current system anything that was bottled in Japan and was whisky could be labelled as Japanese whisky - even if none of the constituent whiskies or ingredients were actually Japanese.

Inaugural Release, New Arrivals, Torabhaig, VIP Club -

We’re delighted to announce the imminent arrival of Torabhaig’s Inaugural Release single malt whisky to Whisky-Online Shop! The first release from Mossburn Distillers’ Torabhaig distillery has suffered a couple of pandemic delays but we reckon it’ll be worth the wait. Torabhaig is only the second (legal) distillery on the Isle of Skye and began production in 2017. Now it’s time for the distillery’s first bottling, Torabhaig Legacy 2017, to see the light of day. Torabhaig is rather larger than some of the other farmstead distilleries that have launched whiskies in the last year or two, with a theoretical production capacity...

Ardnamurchan, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

Ardnamurchan’s Second Release Single Malt has arrived at Whisky-Online Shop! The first release from Adelphi Distillers’ Ardnamurchan distillery last year was from a large batch of casks and even though there were nearly 16,000 bottles it sold out incredibly quickly. Now it’s time for the first Ardnamurchan release of 2021: Ardnamurchan AD/01.21:01.  This second release from the distillery keeps to the same formula as Ardnamurchan AD/09.20:01, with a mix of peated and unpeated spirit and a cask ratio of 65% ex-bourbon and 35% ex-sherry casks bottled at 46.8%. The total batch was just under 15,000 but as before the bottles...
