The Managers' Choice was a one-off series of single cask bottlings by Diageo featuring a single, unique example from each of their (at the time) 27 malt distilleries. They were selected by a unique gathering of the managers from all 27 distilleries who met on the 17th of February 2009 at Blair Athol distillery outside Pitlochry. They assessed multiple examples from each distillery to find an exemplary cask from each to bottle for the range. The whiskies finally selected range in age from 9 to 17 years old and come from a variety of first fill, refill, bourbon and sherry casks. Highlights in the series are the 1993 Lagavulin, the 1994 Talisker, the 1999 Oban and the 1997 Clynelish.
