Yes, VAT 69 is still around. Interestingly, VAT 69 bottles two versions; one for the British market and one for the export market. The bottling for the British market is the big brother of the two with more complexity and a higher malt content ( ~35% ). The export version contains considerably less malt with much less complexity and taste. Why two different bottlings? Not sure; but possibly malt stocks? In any event, the primary malts are with the heart of this blend being CLYNELISH, followed by LINKWOOD, DAILUAINE ( Pronounced DAL-YOO-AYN ) and TEANINICH ( Pronounced CHEE-AN-IN-ICK )
