Islay Mist 8 Year Old Bottled 1950s - D Johnston & Co (Laphroaig) 75.7cl / 42.85%
12 March 2019
A bottle of Islay Mist 8 Year Old, a blended whisky originally created in 1927 at Laphroaig distillery by Ian Hunter, to celebrate the coming of age of the laird of Islay’s son, John Granville Morrison.
This was blended and bottled by D Johnston & Co., we estimate in the 1950s.
This bottle is from a large collection built up during the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s.
The New Zealand based collection is mainly comprised of blended Scotch whiskies and early Single Malt Scotch whiskies produced for export markets.
The bottles were inherited and conserved by the seller, the collector’s son.
