Port Ellen 8th Release 29 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

$2,280.00 Bottle
  • ABV 55.3%

Established on Islay's south coast in 1825 by A K Mackay and Co, Port Ellen closed its doors for the last time in the slump of 1983, but the whisky made in the 17 or so years between its re-opening in 1967 and final closure has acquired a reputation as some of the finest to have been made on Islay in that time. Following two outstandingly successful Rare Malt bottlings in 1998 and 2000, Diageo has released an official bottling of Port Ellen every year since 2001, although it is presently unknown how many more of these bottlings will be forthcoming as stocks get lower.

This bottling was distilled in 1978 and bottled in 2008. One of only 6618 bottles.

Other reviews... The glory and charisma is still there to cast you under its spell, but some high notes are missed...almost naked celebration of Islay malt whisky it once so beautifully and so gloriously was. 55.3% Alc./Vol.
