A 1979 vintage whisky from cult closed distillery Port Ellen. Distilled in the May the year before the distillery closed its doors for good, this was aged for 36 years in a refill hogshead.
Subtly peated, running to warm beach sand and citrus with now more evident phenols
Initially sweet barley and peat, with coal dust and chimney soot all showing through its pelagic style
All of the above is evident plus more spice, soft chewed leather and late tar
