Diageo's Distiller's Editions

Diageo's 'Distillers Editions' (aka 'DE's) hit the market around 17 years ago, and originally included the six "Classic Malts" (Cragganmore, Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie, Lagavulin, Oban and Talisker). These various 'Double Maturations' or finishes, usually involving sweet fortifieds (port, muscat, PX sherry etc), tend to soften each distillery's house character, edging some towards the 'dessert' end of the flavour spectrum. Across the range, they make for delicious, broad-appeal, food-friendly whiskies that showcase the impact of each finishing type. The key to success is to avoid overwhelming the malt with secondary flavours, and some achieve this balancing act better than others. Supply in Australia has been erratic, however we've secured all seven expressions for our customers.
