Port Ellen 1978 27 Year Old 6th Release
The sixth edition of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases.
Distilled in 1978 and bottled 27 years later in 2006, bottled at cask strength.
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.
Unusually this is bottle 4632 of 4560. The casks used in this release yielded a greater run than was expected at the time the labels were printed.
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.
