The launch of Diageo's annual Special Releases is one of the most eagerly-awaited dates in the whisky calender, with enthusiasts and collectors around the world working themselves into a right old froth over their yearly fix of official Port Ellens, Broras and whatever other treasures have been excavated from the company's mind-boggling stock of maturing casks.

This year we have some very special treats, with Lagavulin 21 year old getting a second release five years after its acclaimed first appearance in 2007, and a 32 year old Port Ellen - both of which we don't expect to be around for very long.  There's also two very special 35 year olds from Talisker and Brora - the oldest official expressions ever released by these distilleries.  All this plus the latest versions of cask strength Lagavulin 12yo and unpeated Caol Ila, plus gems from Dalwhinnie and Auchroisk - this years Special Releases from Diageo are likely, once again, to be the most talked-about whiskies of the year.

Special Offer: Free Lagavulin Mug!
The 12th release of 12 year old Lagavulin from Diageo's Special Releases range. A perennial favourite, balancing price against a punchy cask strength edition of whisky from one of Islay's most mysterious distilleries.
£70.95 Inc. VAT
(£59.13 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 59.3%
The latest incarnation of the yearly cask strength 'unpeated' Caol Ila produced as part of Diageo's Special Releases selection. This time it's been aged for 14 years in ex-sherry casks, filled in 1997. There's not a lot of sherried Caol Ila out there and this might be our pick of this year's range.

(£69.13 Ex. VAT)

A fourth entry in the Diageo Special Releases range for Dalwhinnie, following on from a IWSC Best In Class winner. This time it's a 25 year old whisky distilled back in 1987.
£189.00 Inc. VAT
(£157.50 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 54.7%
A second entry in Diageo's special releases for Auchroisk, this time the oldest bottling released to date. It's a vatting of refill European and American oak matured whisky, distilled in 1982 and bottled after 30 years.
£235.00 Inc. VAT
(£195.83 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 52%
Another Lagavulin in the 2012 Special Releases line-up, joining the ever present 12 year old. This is a much more limited edition 21 year old bottling, matured in first fill ex-sherry European oak casks filled in 1991. This has had quite a bit of buzz about it and we expect it to live up to the pedigree.

£599.00 Inc. VAT
