A 1980 vintage bottling of Islay single malt, from the island's legendary silent distillery, Port Ellen. This rare 25 year old Islay malt was distilled at Port Ellen in November 1980 and bottled, for Douglas Laing's 'The Old Malt Cask' range, in April 2006. One of just 201 single cask bottles filled at 50% ABV.
The Old Malt Cask series is one of the most established independent labels on the market. It was launched by Douglas Laing in 1998 and bottled by them until 2013 when the brand became part of the Hunter Laing portfolio instead.
