In April this year, Nick Morgan, head of whisky outreach at Diageo, said the highly anticipated annual collection of rare whiskies from across Scotland had become “the worst kept secret in malts”, and revealed the names of nine of the 10 2017 Special Releases.

Just last month, Diageo unveiled Collectivum XXVIII – the 10th bottling in its 2017 series which is comprised of whisky distilled at its 28 malt distilleries in Scotland.

“The Special Releases range is always a highlight in our calendar year, it reflects the truly extraordinary range of stocks our blenders have available to them,” said Morgan.

Earlier this month, The Spirits Business attended a preview of the 2017 Special Releases, being among the first to taste the new collection.
