Special Releases Diageo 2012: poi uno dice la crisi

La Diageo ha annunciato le otto edizioni limitate della serie “Special Releases” che usciranno a breve, autunno 2012. Qui sotto riportiamo (in inglese, ma siamo tutti internazionali, no?) parte del comunicato con cui il sito Loch Fyne Whiskies ne ha dato notizia stamattina, dopo che da qualche tempo rumors si rincorrevano su vari forum nel magico mondo dell’internet. Due rapide considerazioni:
1. il parterre è eccellente. Lagavulin 21, Talisker 35, Brora 35 e Port Ellen 32 da soli bastano a mandare in sollucchero ogni appassionato; quest’anno mi risulta affascinante persino il Caol Ila unpeated, invecchiato tutto in botti di sherry.
2. i soli 4 malti succitati, se sommati, fanno 1875 pounds: non faccio la conversione in euro solo per pudore, ma il calcolo è facile facile: insomma, tanti, tanti soldi… Troppi? Secondo noi (secondo le nostre tasche) decisamente sì, ma non si può negare che i prezzi in qualche modo siano in linea con il mercato. E pensate cosa succederà quando tutte le bottiglie acquistate per restare sempre chiuse finiranno all’asta…
3. quando comprerete una bottiglia, fatecelo sapere: faremo vero stalking per farvela aprire in nostra presenza…

Diageo has announced its Single Malt Scotch Whiskies to be released in limited edition this autumn in the Special Releases series.
