Well, when I posted the latest information I had on new releases announced in August a couple of weeks ago I had no idea that they month was just getting started. Here’s the lowdown on the rest of the new releases announced during the month of August:
Rittenhouse Rye Single Barrel 25 Year Old
This comes from the same batch as the previously released 21 Yr and 23 Yr. It’s supposed to be the best so far.
The Glenlivet Nadurra Triumph 1991
A new limited edition of The Glenlivet Nadurra made exclusively with Triumph barley. It should be interesting.
Jefferson’s Presidential Select (Batch #1), 1991 Vintage
This is a wheated bourbon from one of the last production years of the old Stitzel-Weller distillery. It’s one of John Hansell’s top rated new products this year. If you can find it grab a bottle. Just don’t grab mine.
Bruichladdich Infinity 3
Timeframe: This fall
I haven’t had any of the Infinity releases so I can’t offer much commentary beyond saying that if it’s a Laddie it will definitely be interesting.
Old Forester 2009 Birthday Bourbon
It’s that time of year again for the new annual release from Old Forester.
This is the new release replacing the Airigh Nam Beist or “Beast” bottling. It is the same formulation, just one year older of last year’s Ardbeg Committee release of the same name.
Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 2009
This is the annual release from Woodford’s Master’s Collection. Past releases have run the gamut from spectacular (Four Grain) to not so spectacular. This year’s release is finished in casks that were made from wood allowed to dry and age naturally for several years before being toasted (not charred).
That’s it for the month of August. There are already a few more announcements for September from Buffalo Trace. I’ll get those posted soon.
