Port Ellen 24yo 1979 3rd

Immensely rare and collectible (not to mention delicious), Port Ellen single malt is legendary amongst whisky enthusiasts. The distillery on Islay was closed in the 1980s and has remained as such ever since. However, their stocks still find their way to our glasses, much to the delight of Islay whisky fans.

This is a bottle of their third release of the 24 year old, which was distilled in 1979 and bottled in 2003 as part of the 2003 Diageo Special Releases. A seldom-seen whisky, bottled at a sturdy 57.3% ABV. 9,000 bottles of this rare piece were released.

Please note: This bottle has a tear down the back label.

Reviews for Port Ellen 24 Year Old 1979 - 3rd Release (2003 Special Release)
Smoky, peaty, mouth watering, heavenly....
I am sipping a dram from bottle number 1121. My wife bought it for me as a Christmas present in 2003 for $250 Canadian . It is the pride of my 175 bottle collection and I only enjoy it on very special occasions. Today is my daughters 49th birthday. So in honour of her I am truly enjoying the peat, and smoke and oak of this very special bottle. I give it 10 out of 10. Truly a classic. I probably won’t taste it again until my daughter turns 50 unless a good Scottish friend of mine twists my arm. Slainte everyone.
