Port Ellen 1979 Gordon and MacPhail Cask Strength

A cask strength release of Port Ellen by Gordon & MacPhail, distilled in December 1979 and matured in casks #7244 and #7247.

Bottled in October 2000.

Port Ellen is the lost jewel in the Islay crown, closed down in the 1980s due to an oversupply of peated whisky for blending and a perceived lack of interest in it as a single malt. It has developed a legendary status in the years since.
