A very rare single cask bottling Port Ellen single malt Scotch whisky,independently bottled by those clever lads and lassies in Glasgow-Douglas Laing & Co. This was distilled in 1982, a year before the distillery closed its doors for the final time, and matured in a refill hogshead for 33 years before being bottled in August 2016 for the Xtra Old Particular range.
Nose: Wisps of bonfire smoke mingling with salty seaweed, smoked bacon and sweet barley.
Palate: Perfectly peated and oceanic in style with BBQ’d meat, damp leather and a distinct earthiness.
Finish: Lingering with charred oak, fire embers and a maritime salty tang.(CSL)
Limited lot of 198 bottles.
Distilled October 1982.
These bottles are becoming rarer by the day !
