Islay Mist was originally created on Islay in 1922 to celebrate the 21st birthday of Lord Margadale based on the premise that the intensity/peat smoke of the Islay malts might be too much for all the whisky drinkers to handle. Consequently, at that time some Speyside whisky and a grain whisky were blended with some Islay malts to create "Islay Mist".

This blend from circa 1970's was bottled by D Johnston & Co, the owners of Laphroaig and would be safe to assume that it would have a reasonable component of Laphroaig in the blend. No Box is available.
