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. This Limited Edition Special Releases Tasting Set Contains:
