Old Malt Cask Port Ellen 1976
This 25 year old Islay single malt comes from The Old Malt Cask range of single cask bottlings. Distilled in 1976 at the now closed Port Ellen distillery, before maturing for a quarter of a century until bottling in April 2001. Only 522 bottles were produced at a preferred strength of 50% abv.
The nose is clean and fresh with apple juice and vanilla, white pepper and chives turning to cocoa and milk with subtle lavender. The palate boasts sweet vanilla, orange marmalade, marzipan and nougat, underpinned by bold peat notes. The finish is long and sweet with peaty fruit notes.

How W Club auctions work
Bids must be submitted in increments of £25 (increment values vary per auction). Auctions run until their closing date, or until bidding is exhausted.
When an auction is coming to a close, each new bid will extend the auction to allow bidders reasonable time to submit a new high bid.
Completed auctions and winning bids
An auction is complete if no higher bids are received within a short period of the current high bid, after the closing date of the auction.
Enter the maximum bid you are willing to pay for an item and we'll automatically bid in £25 increments (increment values vary per auction) up to that value – so you avoid missing out on popular items or paying more than you want.
You can watch any item, and we'll send you an email notification when new bids are placed. If you are the highest bidder, we'll send you an email if someone else bids a higher amount.
