THE STORY OF LEGENDS UNTOLD 2021 SPECIAL RELEASES

For this Special Releases collection, the master blender roved free through unparalleled stocks and set his imagination free, pushing the boundaries of flavour through unique cask finishes and remarkable mastery. Each of the Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in the collection express an individual character, inspired by the mythical creatures that inhabit the lands around each distillery. From the hidden depths of the seas to the highest peaks, each corner of the Scottish terrain has been captured in whiskies that come to life on the lips and spark.

"It’s an exciting time as we’re starting to push the boundaries of what we can really achieve with flavour, whether that be from the way the spirit was made, or from the unique cask finish used, and what we’ve achieved with this year’s collection is just the very beginning. From reimagining several classic distilleries flavour profiles, we’ve embraced the direct contrast that exists between highlighting a particular aspect of a whisky’s flavour profile and the unexpected.”

— Dr. Craig Wilson
