For many THE iconic Islay malt. The third release is one of only 9000 bottles. The distillery was mothballed in 1983, then demolished. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo to release annual bottlings. No more can be made, so these are incredibly sought after.

Distilled: 1979

Bottled: 2003

Age: 24 years old

57.3% ABV / 70cl

Bottle number: 7776 of 9000
