Distillery Bottling
A museum-worthy bottle from an Islay distillery that was dismantled in 1962. Few of us here had ever even seen a bottle of Malt Mill before this turned up. Apart from the one in Sukhinder's stash, of course.

Oct 2012 -
A museum-worthy bottle of Mackie's Ancient Scotch from Malt Mill, an Islay distillery that was dismantled in 1962. Debate continues over whether this is a single malt or a blend - although it doesn't say 'blended' anywhere on the label and it does say 'Malt Mill Distillery' and 'Distilled and bottled in Scotland', some people are of the opinion that it must be a blend. We think it's probably a single malt, but we can't be sure, so we've classified it as a blend.
