Diageo Legend Untold Special Releases 2021 Collection
Cardhu 14 Year Old
A 14 year-old version finished in red wine casks. Bottled at 55.5% ABV (natural cask strength, like all Special Releases).
Oban 12 Year Old
Always nice to see Oban in a Special Release line-up. This expression is 12 years old and composed from freshly charred American oak casks. Bottled at 56.2% ABV.
Mortlach 13 Year Old
From refill casks and virgin oak, bottled at 55.9% ABV. It will be interesting to see how the meaty Mortlach spirit combines with the fragrant spice of virgin oak.
Lagavulin 12 Year Old
The classic, reliable Lagavulin at 12 years of age. Matured entirely in refill American oak casks and bottled at 56.5% ABV.
Royal Lochnagar 16 Year Old
Included in this series for the first time in over a decade. One that peaked my interest as Royal Lochnagar is not seen often at a higher age – 16 Years in this case. It is matured exclusively in refill casks and bottled at a generous strength of 57.5% ABV.
Singleton of Glendullan 19 Year Old
From Glendullan distillery comes this Singleton 19 Years. It is perhaps the most experimental bottling in the series, being finished in cognac seasoned casks. Bottled at 54.6% ABV.
Talisker 8 Year Old
A recurring age statement from Talisker (see the 2020 rum finish), but this time it is bottled from a selection of the smokiest reserves. Coupled to the high strength of 59.7% ABV this could give fireworks.
