Port Ellen 1979 30 Year Old 9th Release
The ninth of the incredibly popular Port Ellen annual releases. Distilled in 1979 and bottled 30 years later in 2009, bottled at cask strength and limited to 5,916 bottles, this is bottle No. 4279
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.
