I noticed that Islay 1971 vintages are very rare,
I'm not aware of any Ardbegs or Lagavulins from that year,
just a bunch of(very good indeed)bowmores and maybe Port ellens...
There was a peculiar reason for this lack of 1971 islay malts or it's a mere coincidence?
(I know Caol ila was closed during that year(if I don't err))
I'm very curious about this.
