Diageo has unveiled another special release  of whiskies which comprises of ten stunning bottles in it’s collection. The oldest in the edition is a 40 Year Old Cambus Single Grain. After being closed for quite some time, this is one of the most highly sought after whiskies, along with another previously closed distillery, the Port Ellen 16th Release. We, Luxglove happen to have an access to a private collection of these special release in collaboration with a privately owned company and we are so excited to share it with you in these article.

Joining the list is another rare liquid from Brora with it's 38 Years expression. An exciting Brora that promises more "smoke, ash and peat" than recent releases and was distilled back in 1977. Matured in American oak hogshead and refill European oak butts, 2,984 bottles have been produced. It's uncertain how many more of these releases we'll have to enjoy, with this fantastic distillery having sadly closed back in 1983.

Limited to 4,932 bottles, this is Cragganmore's sixth appearance in Diageo's annual Special Releases. The only no age statement whisky from 2016's releases, it was matured in American oak hogsheads (some refill and some rejuvenated casks) as well as European oak ex-Sherry butts.

2016 marked the 200th Anniversary of these highly popular distillery and so several expressions were released to commemorate these special event. Lagavulin 2515, 8, and of course 12 were made available to the market and as expected, it didn't disappoint. 

To complete these special release, Caol Ila 15 Years and Mannochmore 25 years were included as well to make it more exciting.
