New Scotch Arrivals: Talisker DE, Lagavulin 12yr and DE, Compass Box!

Hey Friends,

This being a bourbon blog its important that our focus is keeping you up to date on new releases and insider details related to our favorite American brown spirit. But as an enthusiast and purveyor of whiskeys (whiskys) from all over the world, I'd like to take you on a quick detour to one of my personal favorite spirits, Scotch whisky. The holiday season is chalk full of limited releases both here and on the other side of the pond. The Classic Malts offer some interesting limited Scotch whiskys called Distiller's Editions. They are essentially wine barrel finished offerings but are distinct because each distiller works masterfully to pair their whisky with a wine cask that best suits their unique flavor profile. Check out these new arrivals:

-Talisker Distiller's Edition 1999
-Lagavulin Distiller's Edition 1994
-Oban Distiller's Edition 1993
-Cragganmore Distiller's Edition 1992
-Lagavulin 12yr Cask Strength
-Octomore (Peatiest whisky in the world)
-Ardbeg Corryvreckan

Also, as if that's not enough, we finally brought in some fantastic whiskys from Compass Box. John Glaser, a whisky maker and master blender, achieves some incredible flavor profiles by blending together single malt scotch whiskys. These are straight up mind blowing for the price.

-Peat Monster
-Spice Tree
-Oak Cross

Come and get it!
