Special Releases

2020 Special Releases

The 2020 Special Releases are an annual collection of limited-edition natural cask strength Scotch whiskies that feature rare and unusual releases from some of Scotland’s most loved distilleries. Each bottling has been chosen with immense care by some of the finest whisky craftsmen and women in the industry, from the world’s largest reserves of single malt Scotch.

The Special Releases include small offerings from fabled closed distilleries and supreme examples of the less well known, as well as unusual expressions of more familiar names. Featuring distinctive maturation casks, rare finishes and unexpected taste profiles, every expression offers a fresh take on a distillery’s character. The magnificent and unusual whiskies of the 2020 Special Releases are a limited opportunity to explore and enjoy the amazing diversity of the Scotch Whisky world.

This year, the 2020 Special Releases include a 17 year old Singleton, a first of that age, made from exclusively refill casks; an adventurous Talisker 8 year old, finished in pot-still Caribbean rum casks; a rich and aromatic Mortlach 21 year old, finished in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso-seasoned casks; a single vintage 12 year old Lagavulin, smoky and commanding; the Queen of Speyside Malts, an 11 year old Cardhu, elegant and perfectly poised; a never-before released 20 year old Cragganmore; an ultra-rare single vintage 30 year old Dalwhinnie; and an elusive 30 year old from the 'ghost' distillery, Pittyvaich.
