Eidolon Port Ellen 1983 36 Year Old Description

A 1983 Port Ellen single malt, a true gem of a collector’s item if ever there was one. This sensational find is the very first release of Hunter Laing’s Eidolon series. Bottled in 1983 on the Isle of Islay, this was aged for 36 years before finally being bottled in 2010. A yield of just 638 bottles, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This dram reaches back into Port Ellen’s history, and marks the signal of a new beginning for Hunter Laing in this new series of single malts. Bottled at 53.5% abv, this is free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.

Diageo have plans underway to reopen the distillery and suggested the first new release will be in 2032. They have gone to great lengths to recreate the stills of Port Ellen exactly, a crucial part that has made it one of the most sought-after silent distilleries. It will be at least a few decades before we ever see any 36-year-old single malts produced, though.

Knowledge Bar

The name Eidolon is an ancient Greek word meaning the recollection or retrieving of something memorable from history, a gross understatement when applied to this!
