Port Ellen 16th Release 37 Year Old 55.2% ABV
For many THE Islay malt, it has attained near-cult status since the distillery was mothballed in 1983. The stills were shipped abroad in the early 1990s and the distillery was demolished shortly after. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever-dwindling stock.
The headline bottle of the Diageo Special Releases 2016 – the 16th release from now closed distillery Port Ellen. This is a big, spicy dram, balancing smoke and hot spice against the traditional leather, citrus and seaside character.
