  1. Jonathan Kleß scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Gentle giant. Just a little simple.
    White wine colour.
    • Nose
      Farmyard, wet hay, rubber, subtle smoke, candied lemon, grapefruit juice, baked peach, apricot cake, fresh oysters.
      A little camphory edge. Fragrant black pepper. Wet limestone.
      With time more smoke, fat and dirty. Cigarette tobacco.
    • Taste
      Oily, very heavy on the palate, very salty, very orangey. A touch of sweetness. Grapefruit syrup. Soft tobacco.
    • Finish
      Extremely peaty and smoky, long and dry. Dark. Hints of white pepper, Lemon zest and salt. Chinese green tea.

    Very nice, a really good and enjoyable dram. 
    • Nose
      It’s peaty, but in a very gentle way. There’s notes of seawater, citrus and pineapple candy. I can’t help but thinking of a reeeeeally nice Bowmore here (is that even okay to say?). And what a lovely herbal side, here’s mild cinnamon. The peat is quite… Big, in it’s complexity, it’s like smoking a cigar in front of a burning forest. 
    • Taste
      A lot more peat on the palate, and it’s dry. Some sweet citrus notes, and pinewood. Delicious burning wood… And yes, oranges! 
    • Finish
      Big, long, mild peat and citrus and candy. It’s quite sweet, and the citrus is a smash in your face, but in the best kind of way. And yes, a little salt.

    Serge says:

    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.

    Very enjoyable dram where the wood is strong, but not unpleasant. Lots
    of life and complexity and no mustiness at all. Good stuff.
    • Nose
      No sign of sherry here. Back with the full on farmyard. Butter and cream
      there too though. Lint and a hint of carbolic. Old sea shells on a
      pebble beach. The cereal isn't really coming through here.
    • Taste
      Initial gentle delivery then a rush of spice that carries white fruits and custardy notes.
    • Finish
      Huge spice, but complex with aniseed and fennel, camphor and cardboard.

  6. Collector57 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very nice PE
    • Nose
      eat and tar and some lemon too. Nothing is overpowering though.
      Something else that I can't put my finger on.
    • Taste
      Very like the nose. Added orange. Very tasty. Quite sweet too.
    • Finish
      Quite long, a little peat and some salt, making me want more.
