  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2011]  I had this during a "Port Ellen" rarities tasting at Bonn.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  Unfortunately my detailed notes were lost.

    Port Ellen 1980/1996 15yo WILSON & MORGAN Barrel Selection 70cl 46% vol. ROSSI & ROSSI TREVISO Tokyo Europe Trade This is finally "Welcome to the time! That's it!" WILSON & MORGAN wants to play back that Mr. Nobuyasu Hashimoto's remarks Port Ellen! Well, recently, it was a book I had been thinking for a long time "Well, if you can open it!" Color: A glossy shade full of exquisite transparency.The premonition of some citrus Gish is gamble nice Nose: crispy steel and citrus, slightly spirit of butterflies, fresh smoked feeling also visible / hidden Attack: juwa and scallop, ginger gush and lemon gish are intertwined, surprising camphor ... Body: when it gets heavier When it gets thick, the feeling of tightening a step beyond becoming a metabolic Port Ellen one step forward, that is, if it was a drooloid squeezing system at Port Ellen of 15yo, it would not have been cold! Taste: Suddenly Orange.But indeed there is also an orange type sourness.When there is nuance of Bontan ame, there is no squeaky feeling at all, alcoholic feeling is moderate, but the feeling of alcohol is slightly mixed with the metal feeling of steel, wheat's richness It is good nuance.Time goes by.The oyster of Saroma.What seawater of modesty Milky.The metallic feeling of spearless spatula is also no egg.Discovery Oily and Zippo lighter perform exquisite contest! The exhilaration of gunpowder that can be played in the oral mucosa is good! It is a different preference from the fascination that reminds me of Zippo lighter in the smoker days like Banff. Shimmering nail feeling! Cum! The fusion of sandy and kitchen detergents is pure.The shellfish with no egg is too tasty, unlike the Port Ellen of Drosophila system of 20yo over Finish: The humble mango chips that ooze out from the feeling of bilibriity.The kelp and the soaking tea A taste of the sea, a strange sweetness-free yellow pepper is brave, graceful.Swat Milkshake. With the passage of time, the last tide of raw oyster, Juwatto Oilly sublimates to the endlessly sublime rare cheesecake Go, go through Finish! https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars3k3k8h6
