    A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt from Port Ellen, a closed distillery on the Isle of Islay. One of the most rare and highly sought after malts, this is the fourteenth of a limited series of annual releases and is the oldest release of Port Ellen ever to come from the original distillers. Annual allocation ensures availability of this irreplaceable malt for just a little longer.

    Distilled in 1978 and matured in refill European Oak and refill American Oak casks, only 2,964 individually numbered bottles were produced .

    The colour of Golden Syrup, it has a mild aroma, with a coal bunker in the background, and a fugitive scent of custard. Dry and mineralic overall, but with sweet scents of flower honey and candlewax. Any smoky aromas soon fade. The taste is rich, savoury and sophisticated, with clean smoke and hessian in the finish, then a cooling taste of clove.


    Port Ellen was established as a malt mill on Islay's famous south coast in 1825. It developed into a major distillery under John Ramsay from 1833-92. The warehouses he built also still exist, and are listed buildings today. In 1967, the distillery was rebuilt, producing throughout the 1970s before closing in 1983.

    The Port Ellen name is kept alive by the island's maltings.
