2020 Special Releases Tasting Set - 8x5cl
This limited edition tasting set – with only 250 available exclusively on Malts.com – contains the 2020 Special Releases Collection of limited edition cask strength whiskies which retains the popular ‘Rare By Nature’ theme introduced a year ago and revisits the same eight renowned distilleries. For the first time in the collection’s twenty year history this has given master blender, Dr. Craig Wilson, the chance to build an ‘encore’ collection that shows each of them in a new light. In this tasting set you will discover single malts with distinctive maturations, rare finishes and unexpected taste profiles. Each one offers a fresh view of that distillery’s character, drawn from the most varied stocks of mature malt whisky in Scotland. With only a limited number of sets released exclusively on Malts.com, this is the perfect gift for whisky lovers and collectors.
