Port Ellen 1979 Single Cask 23 Year Old #03/464 50cl

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.

This is a mysterious offering, distilled in 1979 and bottled from single hogshead #03/464 for what appears to be the French market, although it bears a Spanish tax strip.

One of 746 50cl bottles.
