New Tobermory, Deanston whiskiesMay 19th, 2008
I was speaking with my friend who imports Burn Stewart whiskies into the U.S., and he told me about two new expressions slated for later this year.
The first one is a Tobermory 15 year old, bottled at 92.6 proof. It’s expected release date in the U.S. is July and will retail for about $120. It will be nice to see how the flavor has developed when compared to the current 10 year old, which this 15 year old replaces.
The second one is a revised Deanston 12 year old, which will also be bottled at the higher 92.6 proof. It will be released in September and will cost about $55.
In the interim, you can still buy the existing Tobermory 10 year old and Deanston 12 year old.
No changes are planned for Ledaig or Bunnahabhain, the other Burn Stewart malts.
