One of the stellar PE Rare Malts releases that catapulted this obscure distillery to fame in the late 1990s. A legendary bottling.

    I understand this was the first ever Port Ellen distillery bottling - bearing in mind the prices paid for other PE''s with less cachet this expression seems under-valued.

    One tasting two months ago - strange tasting notes, very unusual whisky, amazing experience. It still haunts me...
