Another bottle of Port Ellen single malt is also very special as it is one of a limited number bottled in 2017 from 36 year-old 1981 whisky from cask 1297, and was selected by Dr Craig Wilson. This bottle is likely to sell for around £5,000.

Port Ellen distillery closed in 1983 and the whisky has become sought after in the collecting world.
