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 eighth annual release.

Distilled: 1978

Bottled: 2008

Age: 29 years old

55.3% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 3218 / 6618

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