Product Description

A single cask release from Douglas Laing's stellar Old and Rare Platinum Selection.

Distilled in August 1977 and aged in a single refill hogshead.

It was bottled at natural cask strength in November 2012

Just 199 bottles available.

Nose: Rich notes of overripe grape and a little calves leather. Barley malt, hints of light citrus and intense spice.

Palate: Rich, salt caramel-led palate with big, fresh slabs of peat to the fore. Very citrus-rich, with a touch of mahogany, maple syrup and smouldering malt.

Finish: The finish is all about freshly zested lemons and black pepper.

Overall: A classic Port Ellen - big, smoky, and with a barrage of fresh citrus! Delicious.
