Port Ellen 25 YO 1978 Bottling Note

A rare Diageo Special Release of single malt from the legendary closed distillery of Port Ellen, bottled in 2004! We were lucky enough to taste this release at Fèis Ìle 2011.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed info and/or photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Maybe a touch of peanut butter in there somewhere? Touch of caramelised oranges, still great peat, and very well integrated.

Palate: Sweet, but somehow very rich in umami at the same time. Hangs around on the back of the tongue and down the sides of the palate for simply ages. We decided that peanut butter was actually a very good descriptor, as it really clings to the palate.

Finish: Long. Very Long indeed. Smashing.

Overall: Superb.
