Port Ellen 1979 22 Year Old 1st Release

$5,469
This increasingly scarce 22 year old Islay single malt from the legendary Port Ellen distillery was laid to rest in 1979 and was bottled as the first of the Annual Releases from Diageo that launched in 2001. Filled at a natural cask strength 56.2% ABV, this epic vintage is one of 6000 bottles. Port Ellen is the lost jewel in the Islay crown, closed down by DCL (now Diageo) in 1983 due to an oversupply of peated whisky for blending and a perceived lack of interest in it as a single malt. It has developed a legendary status in the years since. A very rare 12 year old bottled for attendees of the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1980 is believed to have been the only distillery bottling produced in its years of operation. Diageo then bottled the first publicly available distillery bottlings as part of the Rare Malts Selection, followed by these annual special releases.
