Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1975 AD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.19 points

  1. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Colour: jonquiripe corn
    Nose: fruity with a nice, slightly vegetal/grassy and meaty smokiness. Dried apricots, very ripe yellow apples, lychees, and once in a while a whiff of rubber. A touch of melted butter, oily almost, with a light floral note.
    Taste: wow, full-bodied! Grassy and slightly meaty smoke, followed by a very intense basket of tastes! Melted butter again, and yellow fruit. Some slight orange zestiness here as well.
    Finish: smokiness with lemongrass this time. A pinch of white pepper. Lingering for a long, long time. Slightly drying at the sides of the mouth. Great finish though!

    Great stuff, with a lovely balance between smoke and yellow fruit.

    25-points score: Nose: 22/23 / Taste: 23 / Finish: 22 / Balance: 23. Overall resulting in a 90/91 score.

    Tasted 29/12/2019 head to head with PE 10th Release (WB ID 18427).
