Nose

Peat and sherry are nicely intermingled with each other. Cold ashes and tangerines. Also light chocolate. It's all very subtle.

Taste

Smooth and mellow. Lots of fruitiness of red berries, apricots and figs. Juicy maltiness. Slightly peppery. Quite complex to be honest.

Finish

Medium long. Gentle peat. Sherryish. Some sappy oakiness. Well balanced.

Comments

My first Port Ellen bottle I ever bought. So this whisky is very special for me.
