product Details

Port Ellen 1979 25 Year Old 5th Release

The fifth release of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases.  Distilled in 1979 and bottled 25 years later in 2003, bottled at cask strength and limited to 5280 bottles, this is bottle 4403.

Port Ellen is the lost jewel in 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.
