Winning bid: £780.00
Lot number: 069-0783

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.

The Old & Rare Range from Douglas Laing contains whisky that it believes deserves greater recognition due to the unique and remarkable qualities the whisky possesses.

Bottled in distinctive squat bottles, this range of single cask whiskies offers relatively few examples due to the angels' share taken during the maturation process.
