Port Ellen 'Xtra Old Particular' 1982 / 33 years old 55.6%
Product Description

Region: Islay

Strength: 55.6%

Volume: 700ml

Amongst Scotland's closed distilleries the Port Ellen distillery remains one of the most sought-after and sorely-missed. Its closure and partial demolition in 1983 reduced the distillery's on the island at the time to 7, and though there is still a maltings at the site, spirit has not flowed their since. This expression comes from Douglas Laing & Co, one of the most reputed bottlers of whisky from the distillery, matured since 1982 in a hogshead cask for 33 years before its bottling at a natural cask strength. The aroma and flavours are alluring, the peat never dominant, restrained by the passage of time; salty seaweed, pebble beaches and soft bonfire smoke are all joined by a distinct earthy and barbeque'd meat quality. The finish is long, maritime and salty. Without a doubt one of whiskies greatest tradgedies, this bottle is a rare opportunity to try one of the most sought after distillery's in the world.
