Some new whiskies headed to the U.S.October 14th, 2010
This is from a U.S. perspective. (Yes, we know that you guys across the pond are spoiled and get most of this stuff before we do.) This is the time of the year when we hear about new whiskies being introduced for the upcoming holiday season. Here’s a list of new whiskies that I’ve heard about coming to the U.S. that I haven’t already mentioned here in greater detail on WDJK.

- Cragganmore 21
- Talisker 30
- Glen Spey 21
- Auchroisk 20

I’m sure there are more (and more will be forthcoming), but these are the whiskies that come to mind at the moment.
