Port Ellen 34 Year Old Bottling Note

Ah, Port Ellen, how we love you. And by 'we' I don't just mean us at MoM towers, whisky fans around the world adore this legendary malt from an Islay distillery that shut down in 1983. Diageo's stocks won't last too much longer, but if they're all as good as this this one then by 'eck we're still in for some real treats! Distilled in 1978 and matured in refill American and European Oaks casks, just 2,958 bottles are available as part of Diageo's annual Special Releases.

This bottle was part of a private collection.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Olives in brine, mossy peat and touches of thyme and tarragon followed by ice cream and just a touch of cork before rich wood smoke fully develops.

Palate: Boom. Even bigger than the nose suggests. It still has a green edge but there’s tropical fruit, covered in cream and smoke.

Finish: Green, smoky and fruity again. Just wonderful.

Overall: Truly excellent, a step up from the previous release.
