Edinburgh Whisky Blog
by Chris

Ballantine’s have added a new expression to their core range – a seven year old blended whisky finished in bourbon barrels. The rather odd age statement takes its inspiration from Ballantine’s founder, George Ballantine, who sold his own seven year old whisky during the 1870s.

2y ago
The Wine Society has launched the first expression in its new Reserve Cask Selection, a 1989 30yo single malt from an undisclosed Highland distillery. Impressive numbers for an inaugural bottling, but they’re nothing compared to the RRP… a mere £95.

by Chris

Following on from their St Andrews Day 2018 and 2019 limited edition releases, Eden Mill have today launched their 2020 release. And when I say limited, I’m quite surprised at just how limited it is. There were 3,200 bottles of the 2018 release and 3,000 bottles of the 2019 release, but this year sees only ..read more
