Having given the new releases the once over there appeared some stronger propositions so we'll all but finalise the line up as:-

Tomatin 18yo 1994 - February 2013 54.1% Bourbon hogshead 214 bottles
(the Teaninich 19yo and Bruichladdich would have been worthy alternatives)

Glenlivet 24yo 1988 - February 2013 claret cask 53.9% 258 bottles

Clynelish 17yo 1995 - February 2013 sherry cask 58.0% 540 bottles

Royal Brackla 20yo 1992 - February 2013 sherry cask 52.4% 180 bottles

Bowmore 12yo 2000 - February 2013 Bourbon barrel 59.6% 216 bottles
(although it was too close to call between the casks)

So one for lovers of the sherry style but don't panic if that isn't your thing as none of them are heavy handed.
