Diageo Special releases 2010

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Diageo Special Releases 2010 

These are this year’s Special Releases from Diageo:Diageo Classic Malts

  • Brora 30yo
  • Caol Ila 12yo unpeated
  • Lagavulin 12yo
  • Port Ellen 31yo
  • Talisker 30yo

The Brora and Port Ellen are always highly anticipated of course. No Talisker 25yo apparently. This year we also see four uncommon releases:

 

  • Auchroisk 30yo
  • Cragganmore 21yo
  • Glen Spey 21yo
  • Glenkinchie 20yo

Although younger expressions of these distilleries are commonly found (expect for Glen Spey, that is), we don’t see them often as old official bottlings.

    I find it interesting that it will be again Port Ellen from 1979. I thought that they would release 1980 “vintage’ this year.
