6. Bacardi’s Last Great Malts

Bacardi-Last-Great-MaltsMany spirits groups released whiskies from relatively unknown distilleries last year as consumer demand for limited edition stocks soared. However, very few expected Bermuda-based drinks group Bacardi, known for its white spirits and rums, to make an unprecedented leap into the single malt category.

The group revealed in August last year that it would be releasing limited edition single malt whiskies from its Aberfeldy, Aultmore, Craigellachie, Macduff and Brackla distilleries – which produce liquid for Dewar’s and William Lawson.

All whiskies included in the Last Great Malts series are caramel-free and some are single cask or small batch. In marked contrast to the current Scotch whisky zeitgeist, no whiskies will be without an age statement on the bottle.
