product Details

Port Ellen 1978 Whisky Shop 24 Year Old

This is an independent bottling of the incredibly popular Port Ellen. Distilled in 1978 and bottled 24 years later in 2002 by the Whisky Shop. 

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.

One of only 602 bottles.

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.
