This morning Diageo announced 9 out of 10 bottles of their Special Releases 2018. For the first time ever since the SP series was launched, there are no Port Ellen and Brora bottles in the list.
Instead we see four bottles destined to the regular consumers market. In addition to Lagavulin 12 CS and Caol Ila 15 Unpeated, we have a Cask Strength 8 Year Old Talisker and 14 Year Old Singleton.
The tenth bottle will be revealed later this year and the series bottles will probably be will during October 2018.
