    Nose: Typical mixture of phenol, sweet malt, ozone, clearly citrusy, almost juicy and fresh. Over time, but also shows a great mineral note, salt? Maybe, chalk and lime, but also delicate vanilla and the citrus notes are branching more and more and scatter a great complexity in the aroma. Freshly sawn wood, resin, maple syrup, straw and caramel. Great nose, with well integrated alcohol.

    Mouth: As so often with Port Ellen, this one shows its quality in the taste only really. Wonderfully powerful, sweet, but also with subtle wood, salty, smoky and again a great mineral note, malt, peat, earth, ozone, and all in a great wave-like development on the palate and tongue. Enormously powerful, but without being aggressive. The alcohol carries the whole, is quite present, but it never pushes into the foreground.

    Finish: Very long, powerful but not alcoholic, slowly fading, malty and phenolic.

    Conclusion: If you take it very seriously, this malt is not the most complex, but it just has such a stunning mouth feel that I can barely get enough of it. A big movie theater!
