Although this is a nice touch, I suspect some people may be disappointed that whiskies are not presented in their own traditional brand identity e. Matured in recharged American oak hogsheads. This has the benefit of almost certainly being true. Notably missing from the series this year is the and combo, which will now receive their own separate annual releases. Palate: Very warming with sherry nuttiness coming forward.

So I was quite looking forward to this one. There is the lingering smoke. Its nutty, sweet and almost cakey at times. On with the drams… These are my brief notes and quick impressions, noted during the launch event. Finish: Long and fairly spicy, but in a good way, it suited my palate perfectly. Malted grains and oak wood also abound.

Typical sherried, beefy, chewy Mortlach goodness but feeling a touch deeper and darker with the extra muscle of being over 50% abv really pushing the flavours. Apple pie, orchard flavours and burnt brown sugar make for a really dessert like body. It is rich and elegant. Interest in older and rarer malt whiskies in general also grew during this period. Talisker 15 Years Old A sweet, yet deep and spicy bottling layered with unmistakeable maritime flavours.

Back in the 2001, when it was first released, Internet Explorer 6 was a masterpiece, shiny and new — a proud, brave puppy of a browser, ready for the new millenium. One of the key things to remember when thinking about whisky as an investment is the supply of a bottling will diminish over time, as those who own it opt to drink it rather than keeping it locked away — a perfect recipe for sustained price appreciation. Palate: Lighter than imagined, but oily with lovely peaty hints. It has been matured in refill hogsheads and butts, giving it lots of oaky notes. Price: £120 Cragganmore 12 Years Old — 58.

It has a slightly darker edge to it. With powerhouse Distilleries such as Talisker, Lagavulin and Dalwhinnie you could say that the beating heart of Diageo lies in Scotland. Fresh pastries and extra punchiness all round. Palate: Punchy white pepper, with a smoothness that underlines it. Starts sweetly and soon dries, with a rising peaty pungency and a spicy-sweet finish. We are faced with a situation of both increasing scarcity and increased demand.

These prestigious and limited-edition bottlings offer fans an opportunity to collect and explore some of our rarest stocks. Pittyvaich 29 Years Old A rare sighting from this ghost distillery that delivers a mature and smooth single malt. What boxes need ticking when looking for the greatest return on investment? Price: £110 Mortlach 26 Years Old — 53. The Special Releases are starting to become a series known for their cask strength rather than for exceptionally old releases from distilleries that are otherwise unavailable. The smoke gives way on the palate to a more fruity feeling. Perhaps that could go in the suggestion box for next year… The entire Diageo Special Releases Collection is currently available at the time of writing from.

Why is it that rare whisky appreciates so greatly in value? Palate: Easy for the abv, mossy, punchy, bassy and awesome. As long as you can without drinking it! There is a slightly darker note of leather in the background which only serves to enhance the delicate grassy tones. Price: £500 Lagavulin 12 Years Old — 56. In the future I hope to go back to some of these and take some more comprehensive notes. But there are also a number of other interesting bottles in Special Releases collection this time. Waxy apples and pears in the mouth mix with spicy oak wrapped up in a malty creaminess.
