For many Port Ellen is THE Islay malt, with 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 eight release was distilled in 1978 and bottled at 29 years old in 2008.

55.3%ABV / 70cl.

Bottle 5816 of only 6618.
