Diageo Special Releases 2017

The Diageo Special Releases 2017 Are Here

Every year we all wait anxiously for the Diageo Special Releases, although I’m not quite sure why anymore, because most of ’em are way out of our price range. Anyway, the Special Releases 2017 have just been revealed by Diageo. There’s no images yet, they’ll become available later in the year.

As you may have noticed, it’s early in the year for Diageo to release the information on their Special Releases. That’s because they can’t keep them secret anyway, because labels have already popped up in the public TTB Database. Nick Morgan of Diageo further explains. “So highly awaited are the releases, you may have noticed that we struggle to keep them under lock and key. Special Releases has rapidly become the worst kept secret in Malts due to your enthusiasm and dedication to the collection. So, in light of recent speculation, we would like to confirm the truly impeccable line-up of this year’s collection of ten bottlings.”

As you may notice, I’ve listed only nine bottlings below, and that’s because Diageo are keeping one Special Release secret for now. They’ll reveal that one later in the year. My money is on another NAS-release, since it is lacking from the line-up below, and has been a staple of the Diageo Special Releases in the last three years with no age statement bottlings of Clynelish and Cragganmore.
