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 is the eighth annual release.

Age: 29 years old

55.3% ABV / 70cl
