Port Ellen 1978
Aged 37 Years
16th Release


Out of stock


The headline bottle of the Diageo Special Releases 2016 – the 16th release of whisky from cult closed distillery Port Ellen. This is a big, spicy dram, balancing smoke and hot spice against the traditional leather, citrus and seaside character.

Nose: Sugared almonds, chamois leather, sherbet lemons, oily smoke, a hint of empty fish tins, brine, floral heather honey and bung cloth – an avalanche of flavours which work impressively well. As things calm down in the glass, spicy rye bread, musty green ferns and touches of hay appear.
Palate: confirmation of the sharpness. Saltwater, liquorice, lots of ashes and earthy notes. Camphor. Still a touch of mint and vanilla sweetness but very shy. Light pepper. A hint of mustard cress.
Finish: long, with earth and peat, as well as verbena and the bitter-sweetness of burnt sugar.
