1979 Port Ellen 40 Years Old 9 Rogue Casks Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 50.9% Age: 40 Years Old Country: Scotland
One of the rarest and oldest casks ever to be released and made publicly available direct from the distillery. With only 1,130 bottles available across the world this is one of the last chances to own a part of Port Ellen’s history
This is the second release in the highly collectable Port Ellen Untold Stories Series that explores the story of Port Ellen’s past ahead of the distillery’s return. Each precious drop of this exclusive 40-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is from 9 rogue casks.
The Port Ellen Distillery in Islay’s south produced whisky for only sixteen years till its closure in 1983. The stocks from this now closed distillery are dwindling and they are now incredibly rare and extremely hard to find.
In 1979, a small parcel of stock was identified as holding unusual flavour characteristics that stood out from the typical Port Ellen distillery character. Unsuitable for the needs of the blenders at the time, the casks were marked and set aside for further maturation and blending in the future. – The Whiskyphiles
Dr Craig Wilson (Master Blender) has carefully selected nine special casks from the original stock, four American oak ex bourbon hogsheads and five ex Sherry European oak butts, to create a Port Ellen unlike anything seen from the distillery before.
The casks celebrate the distilleries soft peat smoke, rich sweet aromas, aromatic spice and wonderful tropical fruits.
This is Port Ellens history and an opportunity to experience the next chapter of Port Ellen’s Untold Story.
