And the tenth Special Release is... Cladach

Nine out of ten Special Releases were already known. We knew Brora and Port Ellen would not be present this year. But what about that mysterious number 10? A closed distilleries malt? An exclusive NAS? A malt from Roseisle? Or a special anniversary whisky from Johnnie Walker?

Drumroll, please! Number ten is ... Cladach, a blended malt from Diageo's coastal distilleries. The blend is the final masterpiece from Keith Law, the man behind Collectivum XXVIII. Cladach is Gaelic for coastline and has been composed with whiskies from Inchgower, Clynelish, Talisker, Oban, Caol Ila en Lagavulin.
