Whisky reviews for Port Ellen 1977 HB

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.20 points.

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [March, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 90.  My notes state a very phenolic nose and a rich, powerful body.  The finish is rather short but very bold.  Water is not needed!

    From Whiskyfun,

    Colour: straw. Nose: fresh, peaty and flinty but probably not very complex. Porridge and warm milk, wet wood and pepper sauce. Quite austere but still rather expressive at just 43%. Lemon juice and dill, maybe even mint. Mouth: a little too cardboardy at the attack but the saltiness is pleasant. Peat, nutmeg, dry cinnamon and white pepper. Not as bold as it sounds! ;-) Finish: medium long, peaty but a little indefinite. Comments: I think this one is a rather weak version of Port Ellen. The nose was nicer than the palate. SGP:134 - 78 points.
