Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1983 McG

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.13 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

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