The 6th release of Diageo's legendary year Special Release Port Ellens. Distilled in 1978 and bottled at 27 years of age this is an increasingly rare dram as investors and drinkers fight over the remaining bottles.
An incredible 1978 Ardbeg with a fearsome reputation, bottled in 1990 by Sestante. Serge Valentin of Whiskyfun was underwhelmed and 'only' gave it 91 points - an impressive and very hard to find whisky.
The first Port Ellen Annual Release goes for much more these days, but for many people (including at least one TWE staff member) the second release, bottled at 59.35% in 2002, remains at the top of the pile for official PE. A magnificent whisky.
A 1978 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottler Hunter Laing as part of its Old & Rare series. Distilled in September, it was aged for 35 years in a sherry butt before 231 bottles were yielded in October 2013. The distillery with a cult following sadly closed in 1983 and bottlings are becoming increasingly sought-after.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
The eagerly-anticipated 13th release from cult closed distillery Port Ellen. Always the most sought-after of Diageo's Annual Special Releases, this usually sells out worldwide within 24 hours and we expect this year to be no different.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
