This was my first Port Ellen, I expected more, it didn´t really satisfact me. 

Altough it wasn´t bad, after a few years I probably won´t be thinking back about this dram with a big smile on my face.

It was nice to try, but for me totally not worth the price here on WB.

whiskyfun in 2011:

Port Ellen 27 yo 1983/2011 (55.5%, The Whiskyman, 120 bottles) Five stars This recent selection by Dominiek Bouckaert is nicknamed ‘While my whisky gently weeps’. Dominiek seems to love the Rolling Stones. Colour: pale gold. Nose: interesting, very interesting. It’s not an explosive PE, it’s rather more in the style of last year’s official Special Release (I haven’t tried this year’s version yet), with many subtleties including some charcoal, bacon, smoked almonds, soot and touches of camphor, the lovely kind of camphor that comes out when peat ages well. Goes on with more citrus fruits and aromatic herbs such as rosemary, before a straighter peat starts to come out but never in an overwhelming way. Mouth: wow (the Belgians would say waoouuh). Creamy, liquid peat and lemon liqueur. Amazingly straight and ‘chiselled’. Enough said. Finish: interminable. Comments: another proof that Port Ellen ages extremely well and that some ‘straight fodder for blends’ can become stunning with age. Caterpillars and butterflies.SGP:457 - 93 points.

Port Ellen 27 yo 1983 ‘While my whisky gently weeps’ (55,5%, The Whiskyman 2011, 120 btl.)

Nose: a very balanced expression. Plenty of mineral and coastal notes (seaweed, brine), soft medicinal notes (camphor) and charcoal smoke, but also sweet and fruity citrus aromas (candied lemon and green apple). Hints of marzipan as well, which makes the whole rounded and crystal sharp at the same time. Excellent balance indeed. Mouth: oily with a lot of peat, brine, spices (pepper and ginger) and bitterish lemon zest. The sweetness returns towards the end (especially almonds now, less fruity notes) but it stays kind of sharp. Finish: long, spicy and peaty, with liquorice and lemon zest.

A great bottling showing all the typical Port Ellen qualities. Definitely on par with many official bottlings in terms of complexity and balance. Around € 200. Sold out.

Score: 92/100
