Islay Mist 8 Year Old 1970s / Orlandi Import
Islay Mist was originally created on Islay in 1922 to celebrate the 21st birthday of Lord Margadale, the theory was that the intensity of the Islay malts might be too much for all the guests to handle. So at the time so some Speyside whisky and a grain whisky were blended with some Islay malts to create Islay Mist. Islay Mist has always been incredibly popular, we are excited to offer a great example of this blend from circa 1970s, in excellent condition. Bottled by D Johnston, who owned Laphroaig at the time so there a good chance this bottle contains some lovely 1960s/70s single malt from the distillery.
