    Blind Tasting: August 2022
    • Nose
      A fantastic combination of dried fruits, sweetness from raisins and dates, smoke and tobacco. There is also chocolate and leather, citrus and orange peel. A fantastic fragrance that promises a lot!
    • Taste
      A large and complex body. The smoke is present and clear after a couple of seconds. But there is also a fruity sweetness of red fruits and berries. Sun-ripened raisins and plums. What a great dram!
    • Finish
      Long with the sweetness of raisins and dry smoke. A balance of spices, chocolate and honey. Wow!

  16. cuhp scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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. 

  17. Sensefreak scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    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.

  20. Dede scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    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.
