Special Releases in the US?

Postby jjnn » Mon Dec 20, 2010 10:17 pm

I read across the forum and saw the Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix. I would be absolutely be enlightened to know if that bottle is still available but I also want to know what other special releases there are as well here in the US. If there is a updated site with this kind of information please do post it

Releases in the US someone will be able to help better than me. Depending on where you are/ going it may be best to check local shops, Park Ave in NY has a bruichladdih, Glendronach and springbank exclusive to them amongst others. Julios in MA have bourbons exclusive to them and an Indy Rosebank.

Ex to the US I believe there is a 21yr old Laphroaig but when i was there a week ago u couldn't find it.

Oban 18 comes to mind.

Yes Limited Edition releases, just something sets you apart from the regular. Limited Editions are limited(obviously) so that itself makes it special and unique. Almost like a trophy really. I'm not looking for $2000 bottle and I don't mind paying $20 if its good. It doesn't really matter where its limited too but it does help to know so thank you.

I meant that as an example. I don't mind paying something that's under-priced but I do mind if its over-priced. Basically something in the middle. Bang for your buck would fit the description.

I found a listing at Binny's. Placed an order that's pending payment for two bottles. I so much hope they have it.

The Glenfiddich '102' is the Distillers Edition.

Do by Distillery Edition you mean this? (I have a bottle and I'm not even sure what the deal is :oops: )

It very much looks like it's one of them 'fill your own'. I hadn't been aware they did that before I got this bottle.

There is space on the label to write you name on it.

Not sure what to do with it. I haven't filled it, got it from WG's PR people so don't have sentiment for it. Probably should just crack it open tonight, what do you think? Was going to go for Balblair 1989 as my New Year dram but may as well go for both... :P
