product Details

Port Ellen 1979 24 Year Old 3rd Release

The third release within Diageo's annual Port Ellen releases, distilled in 1979 and bottled 24 years later in 2003, bottled at cask strength and limited to 9,000 bottles, this is bottle 2186.

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.
