Port Ellen 1974 Bottled 1988 - Sestante 75cl / 65.5%
A bottle of Port Ellen 14 Year Old. This was distilled in 1974 and bottled at 65.5% ABV in 1988 for Italian importer Sestante.
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.
