Port Ellen 31 years 1982 - 2013 #10149 for Wine World Holland BV

Discover an extraordinary rarity from the whisky world: the Port Ellen 31 years 1982 - 2013, cask number #10149. Bottled by Douglas of Drumlanrig for Wine World Holland, this impressive single malt is a precious reminder of a now-closed distillery that continues to fascinate gourmets and collectors. With only a very limited number of bottles (24) available, this Port Ellen represents a piece of whisky history, richly deepened by more than three decades of maturation.

Tasting note

Nose

As soon as the bottle is opened, the nose reveals a complex bouquet of deep, salty sea influences mixed with hints of peat smoke and a hint of citrus notes. Underlying, we taste the sweetness of dried fruits and a subtle suggestion of oak, which offers transition to the rich flavour experience.

Taste

On tasting, one notices a wonderful harmony of flavours: the salty freshness of sea breeze and seaweed that goes hand in hand with the distinctive peat smoke flavour Port Ellen is known for. This premium dram is surprisingly refined, with hints of vanilla and honey merging with complex layers of leather and tobacco, a testament to its long maturation in its single cask.

Finish

The finish of this peerless whisky is long and persistent. It offers a deep, satisfying warmth that spreads with notes of gently spiced oak and a final hint of island character that continues to dance reluctantly on the tongue after each sip.

More information

Port Ellen Distillery is a former Scotch whisky distillery located on the island of Islay, known for its strong peat aromas typical of this island's whiskies. The distillery was founded in 1825 by Alexander Ker Mackay and was later taken over by John Ramsay, who made the distillery play an important role in the whisky industry in the 19th century, especially in developing export markets.

In the 20th century, the distillery changed hands regularly and experienced several closures and re-openings. During its active years, Port Ellen produced a distinctive Islay single malt whisky appreciated for its distinctive smoke flavour and seaweed-like notes.

Unfortunately, Port Ellen closed its doors permanently in 1983 due to the then declining demand for whisky and overcapacity within the industry. The buildings remained standing and the warehouses were used by Diageo, the current owner, to store whisky from other distilleries on the island.
