Diageo has revealed the last bottle that’ll make up its 2017 Special Releases collection. Here’s what it is

Diageo Special Releases collection

Lucky seven

Whisky enthusiasts, you may like to put your glasses down for this. Earlier this year in April, Diageo announced its annual highly anticipated 2017 Special Releases collection. Only nine of the 10 bottles were revealed, with the final blend kept under lock and key.

Until today, that is.

Diageo has revealed the bottle that’ll complete the lineup: Collectivum XXVIII. It’s a limited edition blended malt scotch whisky that contains blends from all of 28 of Diageo’s active distilleries. Prepare your palate, for the whisky is said to start of dry and nutty, before giving way to a rich chocolatey flavour balanced by a hint of zest.

Now, for the good and bad news. Bad news first: Johnnie Walker House Singapore isn’t bringing in the entire collection of 10 bottles for undisclosed reasons.

Then the good news: The house has brought in seven of the whiskies for purchase, including Collectivum XXVIII. Prices range from $250 to $4,080.

Here’s a breakdown of the seven.
