This Islay Single Malt is one of only 2,964 individually numbered bottles produced as part of the 2014 Diageo Special Releases Collection. Distilled in 1978 and matured in refill American Oak and refill European Oak casks, this is the 14th of a limited series of annual releases from the now closed Port Ellen distillery.
Nose: dry and mineral-like overall with sweet notes of honey and the scent of candle wax in a coal bunker.
Palate: rich and savoury with a sophisticated smoke.
Finish: notes of hessian and a cooling clove aspect.
