Winning bid: £380.00
Lot number: 090-2093

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 label says it is the rarest Islay single malt from the South Shore District, then gives it away by telling us "Distilled at Port Ellen Distillery on Wednesday 6 August 1980 and Bottled in April 1997."

Bottled by Velier.

Distilled: 06.08.1980

Bottled: 04.1997

Age: 16 Years Old

43% ABV / 70cl
