Port Ellen '9 Rogue Casks'
17 June 2020

Port Ellen, the ghost distillery of Islay, has achieved legendary status. Nestled into the coastline of “The Whisky Isle” just off the west coast of Scotland, Port Ellen closed in 1983 with a small inventory of casks left to remember it by. As those stocks dwindle, the exceptional quality of what they contained has come to light. Today, Port Ellen’s status amongst both whisky collectors and connoisseurs is one of reverence. It is interesting to note that whisky was made for only sixteen of the last ninety years at Port Ellen. These original stocks, those distilled between 1970 and 1983 are incredibly rare and exceptionally sought after. Limited releases such as this one a rare opportunity to own a part of Port Ellen’s history. This bottling is the oldest and rarest public release from this legendary ‘ghost’ distillery. Only 1380 bottles have been produced, featuring single malts from nine “Rogue Casks”.

The nine individual casks used to create this unique bottling were hand-filled in 1979 and have been quietly maturing up until the point they were; hand-picked and masterfully intertwined to create this sublime Port Ellen 40 -year old whisky , authentic in colour and at natural cask strength. Delicate peat smoke mingles with rich sweet aromas and flavours, to create Port Ellen’s signature character. Yet this new expression offers a new dimension to the iconic Port Ellen repertoire.
