Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1982 JW

  1. WhiskyJug scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Port Ellen 22 yo 1982/2005 (61.7%, Jack Wieber, Auld Distillers, 228 bottles)

    Colour: dark amber.

    Nose: an immense sherry but again a little sulphur, although much less than in the ‘Fortnum’. Loads of milk chocolate and blackberry jam, Chinese plum sauce, smoked ham and balsamic vinegar. Also a little parsley and lovage, roasted nuts, bananas flambéed, old rum, all kinds of raisins… The peat does give this one a beautiful structure and I must say it’s big and stunning whisky. What’s more, no water is needed.

    Mouth (neat): punchy, immensely fruity (very ripe bananas and litchis) with an unusually delicate peatiness (unless it’s buried deep under the heavy yet beautiful sherry). Loads of chocolate, prunes, orange marmalade, ripe strawberries, apricot jam…Blackberry
    And also the spices, ginger, cinnamon, curry, nutmeg, cloves... What a thick beast!

    Finish: as long as it can get, chocolaty and peppery, with a bold tannic structure (never drying). Well, this a perfect example of a peat’n’sherry monster. Spectacular!

    94 points. (oops, I even forgot to add water…) (... and thanks, Fred)

  2. nallacam scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Not a simple PE, it takes some time and a few drops of water. Hidden under a thick "layer" of wood, the distillery character gradually emerges.
    For over 90 points I personally lack the complexity, despite everything a very good malt!
