Port Ellen 35YO 1978 2014 Bottling Note

Strictly 1 Per Customer

Part of the 2014 Diageo Special Releases, this 35 year old Port Ellen single malt Scotch whisky was matured in a combination of refill American oak and European oak casks. A regular of the Special Releases, the whisky from the closed Port Ellen distillery on Islay is highly sought after and very rare indeed. 2,964 bottles were produced (and don't expect them to stick around for long).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: There's still a 'green' edge, like last year, with mossy peat alongside cream, but there's plenty different to enjoy here, especially a rich nuttiness and even a touch of jam. Time and/or water brought forth that familiar chamois leather and some coastal salinity.

Palate: Nutty and full with rich peat and wood smoke. More of that chamois but it's always in support here, never the main event. Complex with some great European oak influence manifesting as dark jam and cocoa.

Finish: Dry, smoky, some allspice and cocoa. Magnificent.

Overall: It's good. It's goood. Great balance, with both more Sherry influence and coastal virility than recent releases.

Must be rare with 14 releases and 2,000 bottles released. That is insane rarity!
