Whisky reviews for Port Ellen 1982 DL

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It's good, it's fine, it's complex; but I was expecting (with Port Ellen's reputation) something more grandiose. But it is true that I am not especially good public with the Islays ...
    • Nose
      A fine herb peat, a little smoke. Wildflowers and wet stone are then developed. After a few minutes, the leather sole. Very subtle, very fine and very complex.
    • Taste
      A fairly dry attack on the earthy peat. Then come the citrus fruits (lemon, orange) and a hint of green tea.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly very short. Alcohol gets out of balance on the final, attacking the throat a little too much. Mineral peat is appearing.

    Not my favorite profile ....
    • Nose
      Fragrant and floral in the foreground. Smoke and dry peat in second plan. Clove, sage and bay for dry spicy aromas. A little vanilla. Cold ash, rock dust. Earthy.
    • Taste
      More palatable than the nose. It is a whisky quite austere, clean and lively. He is younger than his age. Average length or short enough for a whisky of this caliber. Bitterness is present throughout the development but does not crush the distillate.
    • Finish
      Bitter and smoke. Wooden planks, juniper berries. Water enhances the floral, grassy, ​​dusty and fragrant character (cologne)
