Port Ellen 26 Years Old Silver Seal For Whisky Antique 1983 is a wonderful single cask whisky, distilled in the last months of Islay’s cult distillery Port Ellen. After maturing for 26 years in cask #221, the whisky was bottled by the Silver Seal Whisky Company for Whisky Antique in Italy. On the nose you’ll find vegetal and maritime aromas of walnuts, iodine, rubber, linseed oil and seaweed, with fruity hints of yellow apples and candied lemon. The palate is powerful and salty with lemon, earthy smoke, oysters, herbal tea and almonds. The finish is long with salt and some peaty smoke. A lovely old-school dram from a sadly closed distillery.
