Old Bothwell

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Old Bothwell Port Ellen Old Bothwell is a rather young company in Scotland specializing in personalised spirits gifts and exclusively labeled malt whisky. Not exactly a source for high quality whisky, I hear you say, but they’re very interesting because they own a very large array of Port Ellen casks which they probably acquired before the hype.

Recently, some of the Old Bothwell releases popped up at The Whisky Exchange or in reviews. On this blog, we’ve already had the excellent Port Ellen 1979 cask #1654 for Lindores.

There are two new Port Ellen releases which have been presented at Spirits in the Sky (Leuven, Belgium) a few weeks ago. Stay tuned for reviews of the Port Ellen 1982 cask #2473 and Port Ellen 1982 cask #2545.

    The Old Bothwell Port Ellen 1982 cask 2729 (now sadly sold out at The Whisky Exchange) was my find of the year.

    It was a lovely, sweet Port Ellen with a spicy, Talisker finish. What a smasher!

    Good to hear that Old Bothwell have a large number of PE casks… let’s have them released ‘cos they ain’t getting any younger. 26 years is the minimum age now.
