Product Description

Bottlings don't come much more iconic than this.  A 40 year old Single Cask Port Ellen from Gordon and Macphail (who else?!) as part of their Private Collection.  Matured in a Single refill Sherry  Butt, just yielding 407 bottles.  Another piece of whisky history from the Elgin giant.

Offical Tasting Notes

Aroma -  Rich aromas of sun ripened red apples with delicate sweet spice.  Notes of strawberry liquorice with tangy citrus elements give way to subtle smoked kipper notes.

Palate - Intense, mouth warming crushed black pepper is followed by flavours of baked apple.  Traces of fresh orange entwine with mature oak.  A slight herbal edge develops.

Finish - Long and sweet on the finish with wisps of peat smoke. .
