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 6,598.
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.
We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.
Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
