  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Port
    Ellen 19yo 1981/2000 (59.4%, The Bottlers,
    cask #1550) Colour:
    amber. Nose: oh yes, yes, yes (I’m
    mimicking Davin), when great peat
    meets great sherry and sleep together
    for quite a few years it gives a fab
    baby. Superb raisins, superb rum,
    superb chocolate, superb smoke, superb
    peat, superb soy sauce, superb balsamic
    vinegar, superb orange marmalade…
    Something of a high-end cognac…
    Well, I guess you get the picture.
    Stunning. Mouth: a superb attack,
    with tons of sherry but nothing ‘heavy’,
    lots of smoke and rubber (just below
    the limit I must say), chocolate,
    blackberry jam, dozens of different
    jams in fact, pralines… Okay,
    it’s just superb. There’s
    just a little too much rubber for
    it to be 100% perfect (95 points or
    more) so it’s going to be 93
    points.
