Winning bid: £2100.00
Lot number: 071-3185

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, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever-dwindling stock.

A truly legendary Port Ellen, bottled for the 25th anniversary of the Port Ellen Maltings in 1998.

The recipient of an incredible 94 point score from Serge Valentin's whiskyfun.com, this is one of those rare Port Ellens that really lives up to the hype.

Age: 21 years old

58.4% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 99
