    Complex yet straightforward, for this PE offers the
    very same from nose to finish. But all of it is of a level that you do not see
    very often. Wow! Unfortunately long gone.
    • Nose
      Ooh, this is a very nice nose in which the sherry and
      peat walk hand in hand along the beach, like a young couple in love. Tobacco,
      origin chocolate (think Pacari Los Rios), espresso and strawberry on the one
      hand, salt and sweet peat on the other. Wonderfully sweet, it is true.
    • Taste
      Ah, the nose was grand, so it is a feast to see this
      continue into the palate. Beautifully balanced, hardly and oak, not bitterness
      at all, wonderfully juicy and sweet with a salty lining. The peat is discrete
      and remains in the background. Intriguing as an intelligent ginger haired lass
      (what?!).
    • Finish
      The finish is more of the same and lasts incredibly
      long.

    Good, but not great. Tasted blindly.
    • Nose
      Nice balance between peat and sherry. Shellfish, engine oil, burned sticks, lemon peel.
    • Taste
      Powerful with leather, peat, mint. Quite dry.
    • Finish
      Dry. Leather and tar.

    Port
    Ellen 25 yo 1982/2007 (58.2%, Dewar
    Rattray for Jack Wieber for Monnier,
    cask #2643, 60 bottles)

    A cascade of bottlers; UK -> Germany
    -> Switzerland, isn’t that
    funny? Colour: deep amber. Nose: starts
    less expressively than the colour
    suggested, and rather straighter/sharper.
    Gets then very meaty, beefy (grilled
    steak). Balsamico, ham, prunes…
    Encapsulates the peat in a certain
    way. Same notes of burnt matches and
    gunpowder as in the Jean Boyer, also
    notes of cassis jelly and leather
    (horse saddle). With water: it got
    even meatier and wilder! ‘Hare
    belly’ as we say in the wine
    world (not Hare Krishna), freshly
    opened box of 8-9-8’s (make
    that Lusitanias), leather… Just
    superb now. Mouth (neat): excellent
    attack, blending big peat and big
    sherry, with a coating fruitiness
    this time. Apricot jam, cherry jam
    and liqueur, green tea… This
    is big, big whisky. Touches of rubber
    (rubber band). With water: the rubber
    vanished but the rest got even more
    beautiful. Peated prunes (who’s
    gonna try to make that?) Finish: as
    long as an US invasion - but very
    perfect. Comments: only 60 bottles?
    Life is unjust. SGP:457 –
    91 points.

    I love these Port Ellen sherry. This one again was very good.
    • Nose
      A very different profile of the SV C # 1203, less clean. Bitter oranges, ashes, meaty notes, oregano. Very organic, it becomes even more aeration, with leather and some stable notes, then very dark chocolate and balsamic vinegar. Strangely, the water makes it even more powerful, with more balsamic.
    • Taste
      There's no, it's good, even if you feel a little alcohol. Bitter oranges again, sherry, and a good fat peat before the attack of dark chocolate whose flavor envelops the palate. With water ?: perfect, balance is achieved, allowing a greedy fruity to express itself. Cherries (chocolate cherries), orangettes. The marriage of peat and these delicacies is delicious.
    • Finish
      Long, chocolatey and peaty with a subtle fruity acidity and a hint of clove.
