For many THE Islay malt, it has attained near cult status since the distillery was mothballed in 1983. The stills were shipped abroad in the early 1990s and the distillery was demolished shortly after. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever dwindling stock.

From Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask range. This range is bottled at a preferred strength of 50%, known as "golden strength", as it is believed this strength allows the drinker to experience the malt in its full and redolent glory.

Distilled: February 1982

Bottled: August 2007

Age: 25 years old

Cask Type: Sherry Cask

Cask Number: 3639
