product Details

Port Ellen 1978 24 Year Old 2nd Release

The second of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases.  Distilled in 1978 and bottled 24 years later in 2002, bottled at cask strength and limited to 12,000 bottles, this is bottle 4642.

Port Ellen is the lost jewel of the Islay crown. Closure in 1983 has enabled this distillery to receive a near mythical amount of love and respect. As stocks get thinner on the ground, these bottles become rarer and rarer
