Port Ellen 1982 21 Year Old The Old Malt Cask Bottled 2003 - Douglas Laing 70cl / 50%
A bottle of Port Ellen 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, bottled for Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask range. This was distilled in February 1982, matured in a single cask and bottled in March 2003.
This is one of 660 bottles; it was bottled from cask number 482.
Port Ellen was established as a malt mill in 1825, and later developed into a distillery by John Ramsay. The distillery closed in 1983, though the maltings continue to supply many of Islay's distilleries. Stocks of Port Ellen are still available and the whisky has become highly collectible since the distillery closed, though it is no longer part of Diageo's annual Special Releases. In 2017, Diageo announced that Port Ellen distillery is to be rebuilt in its original buildings, and would reopen in 2020.
