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

This eleventh release was distilled in 1979 and bottled at 32 years old in 2011. Bottle 2652 of only 2998. 70cl at 55.3%ABV.

With booklet on the history of the distillery and maltings.
