Port Ellen 1982
70cl / 51.7%
30 Year Old Cask #9828 Douglas Laing
- Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Douglas Laing
An impressive bottling from Douglas Laing, showing that they still have some interesting and surprising casks hiding in their cellars - a 30 year old, 1982 vintage Port Ellen. Distilled in September 1982, matured in a single refill hogshead and yielding only 94 bottles, this is sure to disappear quickly.
This is limited to 1 bottle per person.
