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 whisky can be made, however, so these are incredibly sought after.
This bottle is from the fourth release, back in 2004 and is one of the hardest Port Ellens to get hold of.
