Diageo Launches Special Releases: Today Diageo unveils its Spirited Xchange Special Releases Scotch Whisky Collection celebrating the journey of Scotch, countries and cultures around the world.
Master Blender Dr. Stuart Morrison fused unique casks which showcase different crafts and finishes that honour local cultures for his inaugural Special Releases collection.
From Mortlach finished in ex-Kanosuke Japanese whisky and ex-Pinot Noir casks to the first ever Roseisle Special Releases bottling, this year’s Special Releases delivers new depth of complexity and captures the essence of cultural exchange through unique layers of flavour.
Spirited Xchange comes to life through intricate and alluring pack designs, illustrated by eight artists across the globe – the artworks are visual tasting notes, placing the expression at the centre of the experience and exploring the flavours that emerge from the local spirit casks.
The full collection includes:
- Mortlach ‘The Katana’s Edge’
- The Singleton ‘The Silken Gown’
- Talisker ‘The Wild Explorador’
- Lagavulin ‘The Ink of Legends’
- Roseisle ‘The Origami Kite’
- Glenkinchie ‘The Floral Treasure’
- Oban ‘The Soul of Calypso’
- Clynelish ‘The Jazz Crescendo’
The 2023 Special Releases collection is now available in limited quantities from malts.com.
