    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt



    Nose:
    Stunning Port Ellen nose of surprisingly light smoke, but hints of
    caramel and citrus, coastal notes too, and a fresh character. This is
    where the similarity lies between Port Ellen and Talisker - the nose
    gives you very little idea of what to come.
    Palate: And there is it. The big smoke, minty peat notes, oily, hints of creosote, salty driftwood, calves leather, cigar smoke.
    Finish: Long and creamy with hints of salt and cedar.
    Overall: Port Ellen never fails to impress.

    "A 46% Port Ellen 1983 bottled from a refill butt by McGibbons (aka

    Douglas Laing) for their Provenance series. Described by the bottlers

    as `well-balanced between sweet and smoky elements...mentholated...soft

    tar...sweetly smoked with a salty, leathery quality`. Sounds like

    textbook refill late PE to us."
