During the late 1980s, six benchmark expressions of single malt became well known under the "Classic Malts" name. Those who were drinking whisky back then will remember the official taster pack of miniature bottles that represented the various styles from distilleries around Scotland under Diageo's ownership.Interest in older and rarer malt whiskies in general grew during this period and, if anything, demand for unusual, distinctive, often older, unrepeatable cask strength bottlings is now at an all time peak.
Such bottlings allow collectors, connoisseurs and enthusiasts to enjoy and experience remaining older stocks, and/or unusual expressions of a distillery’s character. To satisfy this demand, Diageo's Special Release series was born in 2001, and the annual collection - with familiar names and some surprises - has been eagerly awaited by enthusiasts ever since. In the words of Nik Keane, global director for malt whiskies at Diageo, the collection represents “some of the most sought after, valuable and collectible Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in the world”. This is part of the new look 2013 collection on offer - a Lagavulin aged for a staggering 37 years in refill American and European Oak and the oldest official bottling of Lagavulin ever released. Georgie Crawford, distillery manager at Lagavulin, comments: “Lagavulin is probably the most sought-after single malt whisky in production today - universally acknowledged as one of the unchallenged grands crus of Scotch Whisky. For many years we have been unable to supply sufficient mature spirit to meet worldwide demand. So bottlings of old Lagavulin are exceptionally rare, and this year’s 37 year old is the oldest that we have ever released." With only 1,868 individually numbered bottles available world wide, we'll reserve this one for the speculators. N.B. - Take a look at what this was going for in the UK (where it's largely sold out) and you'll recognise what a relative bargain it is. We don't expect this gem to be around for long. 51.0% Alc./Vol. No tasting notes available.
