For many THE Islay malt, it has attained near cult status since the distillery was mothballed in 1983. The stills were shipped abroad in the early 1990s and the distillery was demolished shortly after. The warehouse is still there though, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever-dwindling stock.

This bottle is from the fourth release, back in 2004 and is one of the hardest Port Ellens to get hold of.

Distilled: 1978

Bottled: 2004

Age: 25 years old

56.2% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 457 / 5100
