Press Release – Diageo Special Releases 2017

Diageo have just announced a preview of their forthcoming Special Releases range for 2017. There will be 10 expressions, 9 of which have been announced by Nick Morgan, Head of Whisky Outreach at Diageo.

Here are the expressions that have been announced so far. Interesting this year is the inclusion of Blair Athol for I think the first time. Also worth noting is that each expression has been announced with the amount of bottles available aside from Lagavulin, Caol Ila and the Teaninich, which are just described as ‘Limited Quantities ‘

There have been a few labels on the TTB website which seem to correlate with these releases too.
