This was the oldest release so far from what is, for many, THE Islay malt. The distillery was mothballed in 1983, then demolished. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo to release annual bottlings. No more whisky can be made, so these are incredibly sought after.

Cask Type: American oak and European oak

52.5% ABV / 75cl
