A 25yo Port Ellen of the 1982 vintage, matured full term in a refill butt. Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask range hit a really sweet spot around 2008 when this was bottled, and being from a refill butt is unusual as well. We reckon this will be pretty good.
A 30 year old Port Ellen from Ian Macleod's Chieftain's range. Distilled in 1982, bottled in 2012 and released shortly after Diageo unveiled their own Port Ellen Special Release for the year. A few lucky people got to try this at The Whisky Show 2012 leading to some excellent reports.
