Diageo Special Releases

Diageo's eagerly awaited annual batch of Special Releases, issued late in 2006, includes limited edition cask strength single malts from the ages of 8 to 30, and, as usual, the overall quality is exceptional. Below we feature five of the nine Special Releases, all available from specialist retailers, beginning with the most limited of the expressions, a 30-year-old from Brora distillery in East Sutherland. Brora distillery closed in 1983, and its make has subsequently become something of a cult malt to rival the leading Islays.
