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 2018 Special Releases include the Caol Ila 35 Year Old, very old Carsebridge and a blended malt called Cladach that's made up of whiskies from all of Diageo's coastal distilleries.
