Diageo Special releases
This just in....
Diageo have just released a limited edition of nine Single Malt Scotch Whiskies - some among the rarest and most sought after.
This is the 2009 edition in the Special Releases series, first launched in 2001.
The set includes three 30 year old Single Malts:
- Taliskerâ„¢, from the famous distillery on the island of Skye
- two further releases, from finite and declining stocks, of Port Ellen and Brora ... distilleries that closed for ever in 1983, and which have now acquired cult status among serious whisky enthusiasts and collectors.
Other popular continuations from previous years' releases are a 12 year old Lagavulin; the famously unpeated Caol Ila (but this time in a 10 year old expression); and another majestic 25 year old Talisker.
This year, whisky connoisseurs and collectors will also be intrigued by the presence of three differently aged, unusual and rare Speyside Single Malts: Benrinnes, rarely available as a Single Malt, Pittyvaich and Mannochmore.
