    Believed to be a 1983
    • Nose
      Golden fruits, dense peat, BBQ pork, smoked ham. A complex nose that matches to Special Releases from Diageo.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly elegant and citrusy, sweet barley peat, very very sweet, very minty, shoe polish, camphor, balanced.
    • Finish
      Elegant, sweet barley, robust peat, coconut.

    Tasting notes here: http://www.weinkenner.de/2012/port-ellen-elements-of-islay-pe4-und-pe5-im-direktvergleich-21961/ Color: yellow-gold
    Nose: A smoky sweetie that complies a bit more subtle than the Pe5. In addition, traces of fresh herb serums.
    Taste: Voluminoese development of rather dry citrus notes, strongly salty and peppery. A bit edgy and not as harmonious as the Pe5.
    Finish: very long. Again herbal notes surrounded by beautiful peat-smoke-combination.
    Rating: Maechtiger, somewhat schaerferer whisky based on citrus fruits and herbs. Not quite as balanced and round mouth feel as the Pe5, but with more power and bite. 92 points
    Price: about 350 to 400 euros
