Port Ellen Distillery fell victim to industry downturn of the 1970s and 80s. In the late 1990s and early 2000s Port Ellen single malt experienced generous supply through Independent Bottlers with Douglas Laing & Co. offered the widest selection. We’ve heard that Port Ellen was a favorite Islay dram of Fred Douglas Laing, the company founder, thus the extensive inventory. Here we have an exceptional Port Ellen bottled by Douglas Laing for The Whisky Shop. The whisky comes from a single ex-sherry butt filled on March 28, 1978. Bottled at natural strength of 57.9% abv on June 20, 2002 with an outrun of 602 bottles.
Nose: coastal and medicinal with lots of peat smoke, hints of hay, apricots, apples, gooseberries, tobacco and a whiff of sea breeze.
Palate: peaty with shy sherry notes, seaweed salad, salted caramel, raisins, prunes, hints of cocoa, dash of pepper and oak.
Finish: pretty long, peaty, with notes of dried fruit, pepper and oak.
