Port Ellen 1981 Single Cask 33 Year Old #1295
Filled into single hogshead #1295 on the 15 April 1981 and then matured for over 33 years.
One of the oldest bottles of Port Ellen ever released, this is an incredible 33 year old expression and one of only 210 produced. A rare offering that becomes rarer still when you consider the increasing scarcity of Port Ellen stocks since the distillery closed in 1983.
The whisky, bottled at 50.5% ABV, has been drawn from single cask #1295. Released in 2015 this bottling was only made available to World Duty Free.
With the announcement of plans to reopen the legendary lost distillery there is hope that in years to come we will once again see outstanding whisky produced at Port Ellen. Until then it is safe to assume that this exceptional 33 year old is amongst the last of its kind.
