Whisky reviews for Port Ellen 1983 DL

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 89.64 points.

  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Wonderfully complex and not the 100% typical standard Port Ellen, which is always great.
    • Nose
      Initially noticeably cowshed and sharp in the glass, it becomes more settled, the salt comes significantly more to the fore and is very concise, like the saltiest Ledaig, with a nice rough leather, gooseberries, freshly ground cocoa beans, hint of ash
    • Taste
      Beautiful character, very unique blend of gooseberries, sour grapes, sour cherries, some cucumber, salt, leather, liquorice, cocoa powder, chamomile, heather grass, salted caramel, cold ash, but nicely integrated
    • Finish
      Salty liquorice, nice and subtle dirty, grapes, kumquats, chamomile, long, round
