Port Ellen 1978 29 Year Old 8th Release

The eighth of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases.  Distilled in 1978 and bottled 29 years later in 2008, bottled at cask strength and limited to 6,618 bottles, this is bottle 5666.

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.

Bottle number 2213 of 6618.

Please note condition of box and label.
