    Official Tasting Notes (from the web/bottler)

    Colour: Full golden colour.

    Nose: Lovely,

    rich, sweetish malt, some liquorice but also an underlying gentle

    smokiness and peatiness. Very laid-back and restrained.

    Palate: Elegant, mature, soft and gentle malt with some sweetness and oaky tannins overlying a gentle smoky, peaty spiciness.

    Finish: Rich, climbing, smoky finish. The best Port Ellen I have ever tasted.
