Diageo releases 4th (and final) batch of “Manager’s Choice” whiskiesMay 20th, 2010
I received this press release yesterday but was in NYC on business. You can follow the trail of blood leading back to the announcement of the first release here.
DIAGEO LAUNCH THE FOURTH AND FINAL BATCH OF THEIR SINGLE-CASK COLLECTION OF MALT SCOTCH WHISKIES
Among the seven expressions that feature in this fourth release are some single malts familiar to many malt whisky drinkers – notably Clynelish™, Knockando™, and the iconic award-winning Islay malt, Lagavulin™.
But Auchroisk™, Benrinnes™, Blair Athol™ and Linkwood™ normally enjoy only very limited availability.
Each of the whiskies is drawn from one single oak cask, picked after a careful examination of distillery stocks, and bottled at its natural cask strength. The number of bottles obtained from the chosen casks can vary between approximately 640 and as little as 200.
So these are rare and distinctive whiskies. Aimed at collectors and connoisseurs, prices range from £200 to £300 per bottle.
