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 2020 Special Releases featured a continuation of the 'Rare by Nature' theme for the label designs of all the expressions, and included whiskies from Pittyvaich, Mortlach, Talisker, and even a Dalwhinnie!
