To my best knowledge, Signatory has just 2 casks still maturing in their warehouses, Berry has none, Cadenhead - no idea, but I doubt there's any. Douglas Laing & Co, now of course split into new companies, seems to have still some stock at least, for years to come. But the releases are no longer seen in every monthly stocklist as in the past.
Diageo has still been releasing only 1978 and 1979 vintages, which is interesting. I really wonder if any older or younger stocks exist in some warehouse somewhere out there.
When the P-E prices took a big jump upwards in some particular shops, I anticipated that this was prompted by a knowledge of current stock availability. We may well be on the path of seeing Port Ellen disappear slowly as a thing of the past now, even if the bottles out there will continue to be available in auctions for quite some time still.
