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 can be made, so these are incredibly sought after.

This is from the 12th annual release

Distilled: 1979

Bottled: 2012

Age: 32 years old

Cask Type: American oak and European oak

52.5% ABV / 70cl

Please note slight marking to box.

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