I am wondering if all the Flora & Fauna whiskies have been released with boxes or not? I have several from this series, but only the Clynelish is actually boxed.
This has been discussed under the following thread:

Blair Athol 12y
Caol Ila 15y (got still one full bottle)
Clynelish 14y (still got some 4 bottles of it )
Craigellachie 14y (still got an open bottle)
Mortlach 16y (the best in my opinion)
Not my kind of taste:
Glen Spey 12y

It actually does not appeal to me as I can only think of flowery tasteing drams..... !!!!!
Flora & Fauna is a series of Diageo releases, originally of distilleries that were not much bottled in singles, and originally available only at the distilleries or in their local communities. The labels feature engravings of indigenous plants and animals--flora and fauna--thus the name. They became more widely available after a while, and as many of the distilleries' product are now being bottled as OB singles, the line is being phased out.

Ardbeg closed in 1981, reopened in 1997, and have had a Ten year out for a while. Not sure how it happens, but it does.
The Scots must have perfected time travel.
1794 Records of distillery taking place at Ardbeg
1815 Current distillery founded by the MacDougall family
1817 Distillery fully operational
1959 Ardbeg Distillery Ltd created
1977 Acquired by Hiram Walker
1989 Taken over by Allied Distillers and production recommenced
1996 Closed in July
1997 Acquired by Glenmorangie plc
1998 New visitor's centre opened
So, as the law states, youngest distillate that went into the bottle is stated on the label. Ardbeg new 10yo was release about 2000 I believe - there was production from 1989 till 1996.
