This is an exciting release from the iconic Islay Distillery, Port Ellen. This limited edition has been produced from the original distillery's last remaining stocks and is the oldest of the original stock to ever be released. Set to re-open in 2021, Port Ellen was almost lost to history when it closed in 1983.

This special single malt has been matured for 39 years in American oak ex-bourbon casks and refill European sherry casks.  The release is limited to only 1,500 individually numbered bottles.   It comes presented in a stunning case complete with two sets of keys, in homage to the real spirit safe at the distillery.

This is bottle number 1,285.
