The distillery has been producing peated malt for the last week of every year since 2005.
This release follows previous limited editions including the 1989 vintage in 2014, along with the Virgin Oak, Sherry and Bourbon expressions in 2015 with the latest release the 1988 vintage launched in May 2016.
