Port Ellen Prima & Ultima 40 year old 1979 (Cask No. 6422), 51.2%

Price: $25,899 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The nose opens with coal-fire smoke and musty orchard fruits, which freshen in time.
Peaches and mandarins, a hint of brine, and lit cigar. Remarkably vivid orange notes
on the palate, with coal, sea salt, and black tea. Black pepper, tar, and persistent tangy
orange notes in the long finish. Price is for entire Prima & Ultima Collection, of
which this whisky is a part. (436 bottles) £20,000
