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 though, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever-dwindling stock.

This is the fifth annual release.

Distilled: 1979

Bottled: 2005

Age: 25 years old

57.4% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 4518 / 5280

Please note minor marks to carton

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