Diageo Special Releases 2017

Weird. I’ve already been planning a whisky tasting and a trip to Scotland for 2018. Because of that, when I saw someone post the ‘Diageo Special Releases 2017’ I was mainly confused to why someone would post last year’s list.

Obviously, I’m a douche and I should pay more attention. But here’s a list of what’s coming:

I’m very excited about some of these. Mostly because Diageo generally chooses awesome whiskies, and some of the ones on this list are not ridiculously old. As in, I might even be able to afford them! Glen Elgin, Teaninich, and maybe one that’s not been announced yet!
