Port Ellen 33 Year Old

Port Ellen is arguably the most legendary of Scotland's closed whisky distilleries. Residing on the Isle of Islay, Port Ellen's stills sadly fell silent in 1983, but whisky enthusiasts continue to loudly proclaim their love of Port Ellen's slowly decreasing stocks many years after. This right here is a 33 year old single malt from Port Ellen, distilled in March 1983 and aged in a refill butt until February 2017, when we bottled it for our very own Single Cask Series.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose An amazing combination of red fruits and baked goods – pain au chocolat with red cherry. Also, toffee, remarkably fresh orange notes, buttery leather, a sage, herbal quality, and an earthy, warming peatiness that underpins everything without overpowering.

Palate An opulent, velvety mouthfeel that's bursting with rich toffee and shortbread, stewed strawberry and raspberry notes. Christmas cake elements also sneak in – and then the remarkable swoosh of bonfire ember peat. There's a dark, high-cocoa percentage chocolate bitterness to it, too.

Finish Long, lingering and luxurious. The vibrant cooked dessert quality goes on and on, and then there’s the comforting sense of just-blown-out birthday candles. A celebration in a glass.

Overall Almost obscenely well-balanced, and remarkably fresh for its age. All-round Incredible.
