    Smoky and spicy limoncello ? What a treat. Did I say I love Port Ellen ?

    Tasting notes from july 2017.
    • Nose
      Gentle nose. Light peat smoke, coastal and mineral notes, brine, ashes and almonds. With aeration, lemon, sweetness and some aromatic herbs.
    • Taste
      Creamy, peaty, briny, peppery, gingery, lemony. Slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky and lemony.

  8. DavidH. scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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)  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.
