- Ralfy review 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhz1_WZmqA8 (89/100).
- Changed my rating from 89 to 91 for this whisky.
This time I really appreciate the typical PE briny taste, something I didn't appreciate when I rated it a few years ago.

- My review can be found here:
Ooh I'm getting soft toffee on the nose for the first time tonight.
Maybe a hint of rubber here too. Oranges and a hint of oloroso.
Bitter orange. Delicious stewed fruits, then a gentle influx of spice.
My palate is pretty shot now, but this keeps on giving and making my mouth water when it has no right to have water.
- Very good expression to my taste.
Smoke, fish, tar and some dusty wood lurking in the back.
A nicely balanced sweet peat with some dried fruit too. A touch of toffee there too.
long, smoked fish, peat and still some dried fruits.
- An extreme Port Ellen, austere, peaty, marine and mineral. One can always say that it is monolithic, that one is entitled to expect more complexity of a malt of this age, it does not prevent that the balance between maritime, peat and mineral flavors is perfect. I love this profile. If anyone knows where to find this bottle at the original price, please contact me!
A nose Islay bottom joysticks, immediately marine (iodine, spray) and peaty, a beautiful cool ocean. The peat is dry and precise, evoking tarred ropes. Her marriage to iodine makes her medicinal (antiseptic). Then the typical minerality of Port-Ellen emerges, limestone cliff beaten by the ponant. That's why I like Islays! With a little water, well, it's the same thing and that's good.
Nervous, she presents the austerity that suggested the nose. It is heavily peated, mineral and marine (seawater). The aromas are complementary, none really dominating others. The iodized bitterness invading the taste buds at the end of the mouth is delicious. With water: the mouth becomes more vegetal, with notes of cut grass.
It develops on iodine and peat, is long and very pleasant. The bitterness of iodine sticks a long time to the palate.
think it's a good price for a PE. Maybe buy it later at Whiskyauction (for about 400 euro or more).Greetz,
