moving_coil gave this whisky 93 points

Nose:


Vegetal earthy peat, some truffles and minerals but the smoke is rising.More farmy


Palate:


Intense swirling textural smoke and peat, bonfire smoke, overwhelming, fumes, diesel, explosive! Salty drying. Gorgeous old school notes


Finish:


Growing, growing, it’s long. Growing concentrated ashes


As pure and aggressive a young Port Ellen you could imagine

Sjors gave this whisky 96 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Peaty and smoky, some flowery tones now and then.

Minerals and tar, some slightly maritime notes in the background

(seaweed maybe). Very rough nose.

Taste

Very intense, lots of peat, quite dry, after that it gets a bit oilyer with vanilla and fruity on pineapple, green apples and some lemon.

Peppery and salty, some mineral and floral

tones too.

Finish

Medium long dry finish with some fruits at the very end of it.

Comments

Very powerful Port Ellen. WoW!!
