Diageo announces New Releases for fall, 2007August 27th, 2007
Some great news regarding Diageo’s whiskies. They will be offering seven new whiskies this fall. To begin, under the “Rare Editions” logo, they’re bringing in:
Talisker 30 YO = $349.99
Lagavulin 21 YO = $299.99
Brora 30 YO = $399.99
Port Ellen 28 YO = 299.99
Yes, the days of inexpensive Port Ellen and Brora are over.
They’re also finally bringing in the two Distillers Editions that were excluded from the original release a year or two ago. They are:
Oban Distillers Edition = $79.99
Lagavulin Distillers Edition = $99.99
The Oban Distillers Edition was double matured in Montilla Fino Sherry wood. The Lagavulin Distillers Edition was double matured in Pedro Ximenez Sherry wood.
And finally, Glenkinchie is changing from a 10 year old to a 12 year old, ($49.99). Glenkinchie was always perceived as the Black Sheep of the Classic Malts family (especially when it was chosen over Rosebank as the Lowland in the portfolio). Let’s see if this makes a difference.
