The 13th of the official annual releases from the Port Ellen Distillery. One of the most rare and collectable whiskies in the world, Only 2,958 bottles of this single malt, which was bottled at cask strength, were ever produced. This was bottled as a 34 Year Old from a 1978 distillation.
A punchy and rich Port Ellen expression matured in refill American and European Oak casks. This has aromas of dark toffee, wood embers, roasted beef and hints of citrus. An intense palate with creamy fruit, notes of fresh lemons, butter, honeyed biscuits, espresso and sea salt on the palate. The finish is accented by mint, brassiness, green fruit, cloves, tar and ash.
