Product Description

Jim Murray's Best Single Malt Scotch | 35-40 Years Multiple Cask

The oldest ever release from Port Ellen!  Known around the world as one of the most iconic whisky distilleries, Port Ellen 9 Rogue Casks has been created by Master Blender Craig Wilson. Marrying 9 rare casks of 40 year old whisky that lay hidden in warehouses waiting to be discovered. Nine stories that have come together to create one unique and momentous malt.

The stocks from Port Ellen before closure in 1983 are limited in quantity and highly revered by the whisky experts as they improve with age. Special releases of these stocks offer a unique opportunity to own a part of Port Ellen’s history. There are only 1380 bottles available of this release, which makes it both the oldest and the most limited public release from the distillery.

Palate - Much more pronounced bonfire smoke, pipe tobacco, leather, wood spice.

Finish - Long, wispy smoke finish.
