Classic Malts Distillers Edition 2021 presented

This year's batches of the double-matured single malts will hit the market in October


Diageo has presented the Distillers Edition 2021 and announced that they will be available from October. There are no real surprises in the range of these single malts, but that is the basis of the Distillers Edition‘s concept: In contrast to the series of Special Releases, in which not all distilleries are present each year, the Distillers Edition stands out through conscious constancy. Especially the comparison of the different batches year after year appeals to the fans of these double matured classic malts. Vintage, bottling date and batch number can be found on the label.

These are the single malts of the Distillers Edition 2021

Caol Ila

Caol Ila 2009, double matured in Ex-Bodega Moscatel casks for a rich fruitiness and complex sweetness that further enhance the smoky, fresh aromas and taste of the Caol Ila.


2009 Cragganmore, double matured in ex-Bodega port wine casks for the special presence of red fruits and rounded depth of taste to further enhance the complex aromas and taste of Cragganmore.


2006 Dalwhinnie, double matured in ex-Bodega Oloroso casks for a rich sweetness and spicy complexity that provides the perfect stage for the typical notes of honey and heather.


2009 Glenkinchie with double maturation in ex-Bodega Amontillado casks for a nutty note that rounds off the sweet, grassy and malty aromas of Dalwhinnie and gives it depth.


2006 Lagavulin, double matured in ex-Bodega Pedro Ximenez casks for an intense, raisin-like sweetness that combines wonderfully with the smoky power of Lagavulin to create a massive, rich-tasting powerhouse.


2007 Oban double matured in ex-Bodega Montilla Fino casks for a fresh fruitiness and nuances of almonds, which combine with the fresh and slightly maritime aromas of Oban to create an explosive, rich and deep expression.


2011 Talisker, double matured in ex-Bodega Amoroso casks for a surprising and fruity sweetness that perfectly rounds off and complements the salty, peppery and spicy style of Talisker.
