In the vast landscape of Scotch whisky, few names resonate with the same level of reverence as Port Ellen. Distilled in the winter of 1982 and matured for a quarter of a century in two Sherry Butts, casks DMG 4452 and 4453, the Port Ellen 25 Years Old from McGibbon's Provenance Series is a rare and exquisite expression. Bottled in the summer of 2008 by the renowned independent bottler Douglas McGibbon, this whisky offers a journey through time and flavors that is nothing short of extraordinary.

The palate evolves into a delightful sweetness, transforming into the velvety embrace of soft leather, enriched by the presence of rich smoke and the exotic allure of Indian spices.

A Finale to Remember:

The journey concludes with a finish that lingers in memory—an encore that brings back the wax character, accompanied by the peat smoke reminiscent of cordite. Anticipate a late sweet and damp ash "kick," leaving an indelible impression that lingers on the senses.
