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.

A 1980 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Silver Seal, bottled at 21 years of age in 2001. The distillery was sadly closed in 1983 and has gained a cult following since, with bottles being in high demand.

This lot is bottled by Silver Seal, formerly Italian importer Sestante.
