Diageo Special Releases for Autumn 2010 (leak)

Diageo Special Releases Autumn 2010

Look what a little bird dropped through my bedroom window this morning! A leak on Diageo’s Autumn 2010 Special Releases. I tinkered with the photo a bit to fit it in our blog column but essentially this is the resolution I have and there is no good and easy way to blow it up. But from what I can see there is a Brora in the line-up, possibly another 30yo. Next to it there is an Auchroisk, which I am only mildly excited about to be honest, followed by a no-statement Talisker, Glen Spey 21yo, Glenkinchie 20yo, Caol Ila 12yo Unpeated, Port Ellen 10th Annual Release, Cragganmore 21yo and Lagavuln 12yo CS.

What do you think?



  1. I’m especially looking forward to those little heard of whiskies, the Glen Spey and Auchroisk.

    An old Cragganmore can be quite nice too, a bit extra because they rarely do anything with it except the regular and distiller’s edition.

    Also, I’m going to try and taste some more of those. Brora and Port Ellen are always interesting. Luckily, the big whisky live event in NL is in November, just after the releases!

  2. I’m well looking forward to the Glen Spey and the cheeky unusual Cragganmore. But Auchroisk? Still to have a good one actually.

  3. Irene at Cragganmore hinted that there might be a 21yo appearing in the future when I visited in April. No-one was sure at that stage whether it was to be a distillery-only or a new addition to the range. Now we know.
    I’d be interested to sip the Glenkinchie. Its dry, barley malt profile appeals to me, and it is doubly significant to me as the first distillery stop on my tour. Its a lovely wee place to visit.
    The last Lagavulin 12yo CS basically assualted me in the loveliest possible way, so that is on the list, too.

  4. I can’t imagine that the Talisker will come without an age statement. It’s probably another 30 y.o. that we see on the picture but I’m expecting a new 25 y.o. vintage as well.
    We’ll see…

  5. Thank you for sharing the picture. I released the list in July on my website and the Brora is a 30 YO, the Port Ellen, a 31 YO, and the Talisker a 30 YO.
    I hope to taste them at the end of this month :-)

  7. [...] I read that the North British was partly owned by Diageo, the whisky mogul which I have a love-hate relationship with. If you’re a whisky lover and dig into the history of the distilleries in Scotland, you can help but get angry at Diageo – or  it’s predecessors – as they’ve closed one after the other distillery. A good overview of the history of these unfortunate distilleries can be found in Ulf Buxrud’s “The Lost Distilleries 1885-1945” But when you taste the whiskies from the distilleries that they kept open, you gotta love them, such as the Special Releases for 2010.
