From Collins pocket reference 'Whisky':
Glen Albyn was first established by provost of Inverness in 1840, only to be turned into a flour mill after two decades of distilling. It was re-establihed in the 1880's when a new Glen Albyn Distillery was built in another site close to the Caledonian Canal. The distillery was bought by Mackinlay and Birnie : \L\1ho also owned the neighbouring Glen Mhor Distillery) in 1920 and was transfered to Scottish Malt Distillers (SMD), a subsidiary of the Distillers Company Ltd., in 1972. Glen Albyn was one of several SMD distilleries closed down in 1983 and it was subsequently demolished by United Distillers in 1988.
Comment : This whisky is available from independent bottlers only and is difficult to come by. It is a medium bodied, smooth malt with a hint of smokiness in its bouquet and taste.
