There’s plenty of new whisky on the horizon this week, from the U.S., Scotland, and beyond.

Old Forester is debuting its first new mashbill in a century and a half with the launch of a rye whiskey. Bottled at 50% ABV and priced at $ 24, the whiskey is widely available.

Another brand from Brown-Forman, Coopers’ Craft, is also adding a new whiskey. Coopers’ Craft Barrel Reserve was aged in a new charred oak barrel that was chiseled on the inside to create more surface area for the wood and whiskey to interact. At 50% ABV, it’s also higher proof than the original Cooper’s Craft. It will be available in a dozen states for $ 30-$ 33.

Glen Moray has unveiled the latest release in its non-age statement Classic Collection. Glen Moray Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finish was finished in, you guessed it, cabernet casks and bottled at 40% ABV. It’s widely available for $ 30.

Seattle’s Westland Distillery is releasing its latest Peat Week limited-edition single malt. Bottled at 50% ABV and priced at $ 100, the heavily peated whiskey is available in limited amounts, with just over 1,000 bottles for sale in select markets.

A new straight bourbon, sourced from MGP Distillery, is rolling out. Penelope bourbon combines two different mashbills and is named for one of the creators’ daughter. It’s bottled at 40% ABV and priced at $ 37, initially available in New Jersey.

Independently bottled scotch Clan Denny has four new single cask offerings: Bunnahabhain, Craigellachie, and Fettercairn single malts, each 10 years old, and a 14 year old Port Dundas single grain. The whiskies are all 46% ABV and available in a handful of states for $ 55.

Finally, Japan’s Suntory has unveiled a “world blend”—a product that combines whiskies from Japan, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and the U.S. Suntory Ao (meaning “blue”) is 43% ABV and is currently for sale in Japan only for 5,000 yen.
