Diageo Special Releases
It is exciting times here at Whisky Fix HQ as the new releases of our favourite malts are arriving day by day! Its hard to pick our favourites but these three whiskies have made made it into our top 5 ‘whiskies we’ve tried in 2018’ list.
Obviously we’re biased towards Oban (with the distillery being across the road), but nothing prepared us for how complex and characterful this fully sherry cask matured Oban 21 year old would be.
The Laphroaig 10yo Cask Strength is always a highlight as far as yearly batch bottling’s go and once again, this one does not disappoint. Full of iodine aromas, tarry ropes and creaminess, it’s a must for the legions of Laphroaig fans worldwide.
Award for surprisingly amazing whisky of the year goes to Talisker 8 Year Old. An unexpected addition to the Diageo Special Release range, this malt has received global adulation from fans of peaty, coastal whisky. The only downside is the small number of bottles produced.
