Port Ellen 1979 25 Year Old 5th Release

The fifth release of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases.  Distilled in 1979 and bottled 25 years later in 2003, bottled at cask strength and limited to 5280 bottles, this is bottle 1662.

Port Ellen is the lost jewel in the Islay crown. Closure in 1983 has enabled this distillery to receive a near mythical amount of love and respect. As stocks get thinner on the ground, these bottles become rarer and rarer.

Please note minor water damage to back label and box.

Important Notice

Please be advised that the absence of any specific condition reports does not imply that this bottle is in perfect condition. We recommend close inspection of all images prior to placing any bids, and any further information required can be provided upon request.

Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
