Port Ellen 1979 24 Year Old 'Third Release' 57.30% 70cl

The second of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases. Distilled in 1979 and bottled 24 years later in 2003, bottled at cask strength and limited to 9,000 bottles.

Port Ellen is the lost jewel in the Islay crown. Closure in 1983 has enabled this distillery to receive a near mythical amount of love and respect. As stocks get thinner on the ground, these bottles become rarer and rarer.
