  2. Gloin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The smell is very complex and requires time and attention to fully develop it. Also the smell is very changeable and with each breath another flavor is in the foreground. The nose is already convincing. On the palate, then show the 24 years, a strong, but still mature Islaywhisky. Unfortunately, the finish is a bit too one-dimensional and wood-heavy in comparison to the rest, which could be even more harmonious
    • Nose
      Orange and car tires is the first thing that comes to my mind when I smell this whisky. Smoke follows, something that reminds me of cough drops, smoked fish, sweet sherry in the background, and a delicate grassy note, slightly sour, but also sweet malt and a hint of vanilla
    • Taste
      A mighty entrance makes the mouth glow. Ginger sharpness, light smoke, the association of salt and iodine, a bitter-sweet herbal note, the age comes through, less sweet than in the nose, the sherry is more restrained
    • Finish
      Smoke, again the herbal notes, bitter, woody, the sweetness is almost completely gone, long

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    interesting, rather sherry-untypical, on Port Ellen I would probably never come
    • Nose
      very spicy-hot, cinnamon, ginger, burnt sugar, floor wax, orange marmalade
    • Taste
      again spicy sharpness (pepper, ginger), a hint of exotic fruits (slightly bitter - lime, grapefruit), grass, raffia
    • Finish
      long, vegetable-bitter

  5. Dede scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very good Port-Ellen complex and interesting, although a bit alcoholic in the mouth. Unfortunately, the addition of water reinforces the bitterness of wood to the detriment of other aramines, preventing it from exceeding 90.
    • Nose
      At the same time maritime and fishing. The oak is present, but all in finesse. Beautiful notes of caramelized pineapple, a sweet / salty / spicy side evoking the Creole cuisine, and a discrete peat in the background. The influence of sherry is betrayed by fleeting aroma mocha. With water: The sweetness takes over with notes of pineapple cream sprinkled with cinnamon, date. Mocha is also more present.
    • Taste
      Pretty alcoholic. On exotic fruits (pineapple, passion fruit) with always this sweet / salty / spicy mixture (pepper, pepper), then appears a bitterness woody evoking a unsweetened tea. With water: the spices and the wood are more present but the bitterness is better mastered. Exotic aromas are always present but less acidity gives way to the sweet-bitter flavors of papaya and guava.
    • Finish
      Long and slightly peaty, on grapefruit, licorice and green tea. With water: the wood is more domineering, with a more pronounced tannic bitterness.
