What’s hot today?

Additionally, we also tried to find out what the hottest bottles of the moment are. These new whisky releases have been added to the most whisky wishlist during the past few weeks.

1. Ardbeg Kelpie

Ardbeg’s annual Ardbeg Day release is named Kelpie. This heavily peated single malt is available as a 46% bottling, or a cask strength Committee Release edition.

2. Highland Park Valkyrie

Highland Park recently redesigned their core range bottles, and released a single malt while they were at it, too. Highland Park Valkyrie has a more peated character than the usual bottlings of the Island distillery.

3. Tomatin Five Virtues

The first two of Tomatin’s Five Virtues series have been released, and seem to be equally popular. The Fire edition is outranking the Wood edition by just a few wishlist-votes.

4. Teeling Brabazon Bottling No 1

Irish whiskey is hot, and that’s partially caused by the popularity of Teeling. Their whiskies often receive excellent reviews and are decently priced. The new sherry finished Brabazon Bottling 01 is no exception.

5. Glenmorangie Bacalta

Bacalta is Glenmorangie’s eighth release in their multi-award-winning Private Edition series. Where some of the previous versions received mixed reactions, Bacalta seems to hit the ball out of the park.

6. Compass Box The Double Single 2017

At around £150, the 2017 edition of Compass Box The Double Single is the priciest whisky in this list. However, that’s to expect for a blend of 19 year old single malt with ‘significantly older’ whisky.

7. Aberlour A’bunadh Batch 58

This full flavored single malt is on any heavily sherried whisky fanatic’s wishlist.

8. Colonel E.H. Taylor Four Grain

E.H. Taylor Four Grain was distilled in 2005 from a ‘distinct bourbon recipe’, using corn, rye, wheat, and malted barley. After maturing for twelve years, it was bottled at 50% vol.

9. Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair

At just under 40 pounds, the brand new Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair (pronounced: Stew Rah Durr) will break more tongues than banks.

10. Blood Oath Pact No. 3

Not your every day whisky: Blood Oath Pact No. 3 is a Cabernet Sauvignon finished bourbon, bottled at 49.3%.
