Port Ellen 1979 40 Year Old Private Collection

Port Ellen remains one of Islay's most sought after malt whiskies after the distillery closed in 1983. We are now in the era where matured stock from these final years has reached some truly special milestones. This particular release from Gordon & Macphail has been bottled at a stunning 40 years old from a single refill sherry puncheon. Distilled in 1979 and aged until 2019, we think this might be the oldest release we have stocked from this silent Islay titan.
