For many THE Islay malt, it has attained near cult status since the distillery was mothballed in 1983. The stills were shipped abroad in the early 1990s and the distillery was demolished shortly after. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever dwindling stock.

The first bottling of Port Ellen by Parkers Whisky, of Banff, featuring, rather oddly, a lovely pair of melons on the front label. They are paying tribute, apparently, to the nose, which remind Mr Parker of cheeky melons!

Distilled: 1982

Bottled: 2007

56.8%ABV / 70cl

Bottled Number: 198 of 220

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