Winning bid: £560.00
Lot number: 071-0195

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.

This bottling was released in small numbers by the Whisky Exchange for their Whisky Show in 2012.

Distilled: 1983

Bottled: 2012

50% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: One of only 60 bottles released

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
