Diageo Special Releases

Each year the Diageo Special Releases showcase impressive limited edition, usually cask strength bottlings of their Classic Malts alongside other rare and sought-after whiskies, often from now-closed distilleries. The 2017 Special Releases include the joint-oldest ever Port Ellen, rare Brora and a blended malt called Collectivum XXVIII that's made up of whiskies from all of Diageo's operational distilleries.
