Special Releases 2006 from Diageo

Postby Skauge » Tue Aug 01, 2006 6:47 am

I didn't where to publish this information, but I hope this is the right forum. Hope it's ok to post links to other sites here also.

onlymalts.com has published the latest press release from Diageo regarding the 2006 special releases. We are also putting up pictures and detailed information about each and every bottling in the coming days.

There are some really exciting bottlings this year, like Cragganmore 17, Dalwhinnie 20, Talisker 30 and an unpeated Caol Ila.

For the press relase:

(Please scroll down to the bottom. Some of the information is in norwegian, but the tasting notes are not translated).

Good work Bjørn! Honestly, if I may say, you and onlymalts does a truly fantastic job keeping us informed, and you seem to be ahead of the rest!! It's nice to check the site and find constant updates about what's going on in the Norwegian market, and the whisky world! Thanks, keep up the great work!

Just a short one on the Caol Ila Highland (the unpeated):

It's a brilliant dram. Creamy, smooth and sweet. Quite cereal. It became even better when watered. (It comes as a CS)

I've 'pre-booked' a bottle already.

That sounds great Bullie! And cask strength even better. I may have to pre-book too.

Shouldn't be a problem with supplies of unpeated Caol Ila - they've been making it for ages (for blends).

As far as I know nobody has ever gotten to bottle it. But they have pulled a few samples for Islay-festivals i the past (last year they had a tasting with unpeated newmake and an unpeated 4yo - plus several others).

If my memory doesn't let me completely down they started making unpeated Caol Ila allready in the mid-80s.
