These five make a superb collection. Port Ellen has been closed for many years, the last of its maritime malt much prized. The Coal Ila bottlings show a fresh, sea-smoky style, to different degrees. Lagavulin's deep intensity needs no introduction, the 12 year old's new spirit contrasting with the richness of the 16 year old.

Coal Ila 12 Year Old

Coal Ila has a fresh, sweetly fruity and smooth-bodied house style.

43% ABV / 20cl

Coal Ila 18 Year Old

Age introduces a golden colour and complexity to this 18 year old Coal Ila, which is softer than the 12 year old.

43% ABV / 20cl

Please note the slight tear in the back label.

Lagavulin 12 Year Old

A straight, cask-strength special release of Lagavulin, this pale, very medicinal 12 year old will appeal to those who like their Islay malts direct.

57.1% ABV / 20cl

Lagavulin 16 Year Old

Deep-coloured and deep chested, Lagavulin 16 year old makes a rich, sweet contrast to the 12 year old.

43% ABV / 20cl

Port Ellen 27 Year Old 7th Release

For many THE Islay malt. Has attained near cult status. Port Ellen distillery was mothballed in 1983, then demolished. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo to release annual bottlings. No more can be made, so these are incredibly sought after.

54.7% ABV / 20cl

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
