Diageo Special Releases 2022-Elusive Expressions
It’s one of the most eagerly awaited times in the whisky world — the unveiling of drinks goliath Diageo’s Special Releases collection.
Every year, whisky lovers and collectors across the globe lose their minds for this absolutely stellar, one-of-a-kind collection of whiskies from Diageo’s most interesting and legendary distilleries.
Curated by Master Blender Craig Wilson, the 2022 collection, Elusive Expressions, was released in October last year using stocks from Diageo’s whopping 30 distilleries and 10 million casks.
“Elusive Expressions, (is) a boundary-pushing collection with flavours and finishes that truly redefine what cask-strength whiskies can be,” Master Blender Dr. Craig Wilson says. “From abundantly rich, to strikingly rare flavours, each one is vividly bought to life with new energy. Featuring some of our oldest whisky dynasties, we’ve embraced the flavour contrasts that exist within the collection, to create an unexpected whisky experience.”
