  1. Gaija scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior


    This will definitely greatly benefit from bottle aeration now that it has been opened, I am pretty sure I could see myself scoring it higher on later occasion. As is, it is still a little bit blocked by its own (tremendous) power. Otherwise it has some classic Port Ellen markers on beach sand, driftwood, hessian, slight touches of camphor and salted lemon. Extremely long finish on similar coastal notes, cracked pepper and camphor. The sherry has been really discrete here, no overt cask influence here, and as often with Port Ellen this still feels incredibly young. Swims extremely well, water is recommended. Thank you so much Matthias !

    Weighed between 91 and 92
    Full-bodied, heavy molt, a lot of soot, ash, a little iodine, sea notes, seaweed nori, the taste of fruit, berries, meat steak with blood on coals, with ashes. Light nuts and thick smoke

    It is a 1982 bottled for the birthday of the owner of MOS Thomas Ewers. It was supposedly bottled 2020 for his 60th birthday, 38 year old.

    Nose - a pleasant light smoke, soot, dried fruit, the whole is completed with mineral notes, slightly salty.

    Taste - mineral, salty, notes of toffee, delicate red fruit, almond peel.

    Finish - medium-long, maritime, dry, a bit reminiscent of ex refill sherry talisker, but less expressive.

    Just short notes today:
    Mineral notes of ash, red fruits. some menthol. Almond oil.

    Slightly dry in the mouth, subtle fruit, slightly astringent. Mineral-ashy, you can leave it in your mouth for a long time and discover new components.

    Finish: Quite tart and dry, long-lasting.


    A really nice whisky and simply releasing it as a NAS I still think it's a great action.
