Product Description

The 12th release of Port Ellen from the annual limited Diageo releases for 2012.

Distilled in 1979 and bottled at 32 years old and bottled at 52.5% ABV

And as ever these bottles are almost impossible to obtain and their prices are continuously climbing with only 2964 bottles released.

Nose: Boggy, mossy peat, tarry oil like notes, seaweed, chilli flake heat, coastal-salty nuances and damp earth.

Palate: Seaweed on a bbq, salty notes, chilli flake infused oil, tarry coal like peat, vegetal (roasted green peppers) charred meat.

Finish: Some sweetness and spicy citrus to the tarry seaweed, brine and oily coastal notes, peppercorns and chilli like heat on a long and impressive finish.

Another stunning release from this iconic lost distillery.
