product Details

Port Ellen 1978 31 Year Old 10th Release

The tenth edition of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases.  Distilled in 1978 and bottled 31 years later in 2010, bottled at cask strength and limited to 3,000 bottles, this is bottle 1644.

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.

The bottle and box are in excellent condition.
