Port Ellen 40 Year Old 9 Rogue Casks Description

Distilled at the original Port Ellen in 1979, these nine casks of whisky were discovered and brought together by the master distiller to craft a unique limited edition release: the oldest and most limited to date. Each cask was matured for at least 40 years before all nine were married together and bottled at a natural cask strength of 50.9% abv, free from any artificial colouring. Presented in a beautiful case, under lock and key, this release is limited to just 1,380 bottles worldwide.

The nose is delicate, with a mild smoke complemented by burnt orange, fresh herbs and a grassy note. The palate brings a much more pronounced smoke, alongside rich leather and pipe tobacco with a gentle wood spice. the finish is long and satisfying with a wisp of smoke remaining.

Knowledge Bar

Port Ellen distillery was founded as a malt mill in 1825, later being developed as a distillery between 1833 and 1892. The distillery closed its doors for the last time in 1983, but with the resurgence of single malt whisky, stocks from the closed distillery became revered for their quality. Limited editions of the remaining liquid were released almost annually by owners Diageo, to much acclaim from whisky connoisseurs. In 2019, plans to revive the distillery were approved and Port Ellen is set to re-open in 2021.
