Port Ellen 25 YO 1979 Bottling Note

Rare single malt whisky from the sadly closed distillery of Port Ellen on Islay. This was part of Diageo's Special Releases in 2005 with 5,280 sought-after bottles produced.

This bottle was part of a private collection.

More detailed information and photographs of this item are available, please contact our Customer Service team.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Big hit of grapefruit and melon, nicely tropical... Then switches to the peat, but not huge peat, nicely balanced again...

Palate: Very sweet, but balanced with a hitherto unseen salinity in droves...

Finish: I'm just going to transpose the comment from the Dictaphone here: “Whisky’s really nice isn't it?”

Overall: A marked departure from the previous bunch, much more tropical and zesty. Perhaps the most stereotypical Port Ellen of the first five releases.
