A 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Wilson & Morgan. This was aged in sherry butt 2031 for 30 years old prior to bottling. Distilled the year before the distillery sadly closed for good.
One of the rarest bottlings from this closed cult distillery, bottlings of which are relatively rare themselves. Just 67 bottles were yielded from the single ex-sherry butt. This was distilled in September 1982, aged for 31 years and bottled at cask strength in October 2013.
An old bottling of 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottler Douglas Laing as part of the Old Malt Cask range. Distilled in February in the year before the distillery closed for good, this was aged in cask number 740 for 22 years before 264 bottles were yielded in September 2004.
In celebration of the 2011 Royal Wedding TWE has selected a single sherry cask of Port Ellen and bottled it on 29th April - the wedding day itself. The spirit was distilled in 1982, the birth year of both bride and groom, and the year before the distillery closed. It's a big, dark cask-strength dram with rich, dry sherrywood flavours.
