product Details

Port Ellen 1982 Douglas Laing 25 Year Old / Old and Rare - Potstill Vienna

Port Ellen is the lost jewel in the Islay crown, closed down by DCL (now Diageo) in 1983 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. A very rare 12 year old bottled for attendees of the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1980 is believed to have been the only distillery bottling produced in its years of operation. Diageo have bottled more since, but it is the independent companies that have given the whisky world the best chance to sample this sought after single malt.

This is part of the Old & Rare series. It was bottled by Douglas Laing until 2013 when the brand became part of the Hunter Laing portfolio instead.

One of 512 bottles drawn exclusively from a single cask for Austrian retailer, Potstill Vienna.
