Diageo has now revealed the two limited-edition single cask bottlings of its Islay whiskies which will be sold at this year's Islay Festival of Malt and Music (22-29 May).
The 2010 bottlings will be from a Lagavulin cask filled in August 1994 and from a Caol Ila cask filled in August 1999. Both malts have been bottled at natural cask strength, and will be priced at £74.99. The bottles will be rationed to one per visitor.
The Lagavulin special bottling will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the distillery, starting on the distillery's open day, Saturday 22 May. The Caol Ila bottling will be sold with effect from Monday 24 May which is the Caol Ila open day.
