Port Ellen 40 Year Old 9 Rogue Casks 700ml

| /

This is the oldest release from the original Port Ellen Distillery, distilled in 1979, just 4 years prior to its closure in 1983.

These nine casks of whisky were discovered and brought together to craft a limited  edition release: the oldest and most limited to date.

Each cask was matured for at least 40 years before all nine were married together and bottled at a natural cask strength of 50.9% abv, free from any artificial colouring.

Presented in a beautiful lock and key case, this release is limited to just 1,380 bottles worldwide.

The nose is delicate, with a mild smoke joined by burnt orange peel, fresh herbs and a grassy note.

The palate brings a coastal, unmistakable Islay peat-smoke, alongside rich smoked bacon and pipe tobacco with soft wood spices.

The finish is long with just a wisp of smoke remaining.
