There are three whiskies with an rrp of £200: Dailuaine 1997, Inchgower 1993 and Mannochmore 1998.

The first two batches of Diageo’s single cask collection, called The Managers’ Choice, were released in September of last year and January of this.

The final batch will be released in May.

“Many serious buyers, including those who know and enjoy our malt whiskies in their more familiar bottlings, are fascinated by the unexpected insights and flavours that The Managers’ Choice offers.”
