I appreciate this is a little naughty, but I wanted tell you guys something that myself and my friend, Richard Parker, have come up with a single cask bottling of Port Ellen.
For the record, I have no financially interest in this bottle but I did have a input in its design.
I hope I have not offended anyone with this posting. However, Richard was a whisky colllector who had the balls to jack his job in last year and open a whisky shop. Full marks to the guy in bottling this..... you cant beat a nice pair of Pert mEllons!
Richard Parker and I became acquainted right here on the Whisky Mag forum back in January when Richard requested information about a trip he was making to Houston. We met here in Houston and exchanged bottles and info. He is a great guy and has provided some great suggestions. I’ve ordered whisky through Parker Whisky and have had no problems with delivery. His ad in Whisky Magazine states, “A whisky shop run by an enthusiast .. for enthusiasts!” I think this reflects Richard’s approach to whisky very nicely.
If you’re interested in Port Ellen’s, I recommend buying this one. As killerwhale suggested, sign-up for the shop newsletter and receive some great deals.

I've since e-mailed the shop and he has put a couple away for me (one to drink, one to save...or drink later). He sounds like a very nice fellow and is quite accommodating.
Good for him for following his heart and setting up shop. Lucky are those who can get paid for exercising their passion.
I have asked Richard and he intendes to send samples out once he takes delivery of the bottles next week.
He is really chuffed with the article in the Whisky Magazine.
Again its great to see someone follow his passion .... and get paid for it
PS really must get those sawps bottles to you soon.
