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 2019 Special Releases featured an overarching theme of 'Rare by Nature' for the label designs of all the expressions, and included whiskies from Pittyvaich, Mortlach, Talisker, and even a smoky Cragganmore!
