Diageo has announced that its 2005 annual Rare Malts Selection will be the last.
The collection will consist of four cask strength single malts from closed distilleries; Glen Mhor 28 years old, Millburn 35 years
old, Glendullan 26 years old and Linkwood 30 years old.
Dr Nicholas Morgan, global malts marketing director commented:
“As the Special Releases are now well established, it makes less sense to continue selecting and promoting a parallel series of Rare Malts with its own separate identity.”
In future, all premium and rare whiskies will be made available in the annual Special Releases series.
