Port Ellen 25yo 1982/2007 (46%, Berry Bros & Rudd, cask #2469) Colour: white wine. Nose: this one seems to be a rather balanced, almost delicate Port Ellen. There’s really a little everything of what PE should be: tar (and brand new tyres), smoke, ashes, kelp, pepper, ‘clean wet dog’, grapefruits… Perfect! Nose: oh yes, it’s just the same, with maybe just added notes of crystallised oranges upfront. Dangerously drinkable – the strength is perfect. Finish: long, still very balanced, with a huge saltiness arising as a perfect signature. Top notch Port Ellen offering lots of pleasure at an ideal drinking strength (as they say). Watch the level if you buy a bottle, unless you never ever entertain guests (or have no problems with the other you). 92 points.
