Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1977 Sc

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.36 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had another dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Rolandsbogen. In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 87,5. 
    My notes state an average blonde colour and a few very late legs and tears (oily texture at the glass).  The nose is on a medium peaty profile.  It arrives on the palate soft and rounded with some biting moments.  The taste is fresh and sweet with some peaty flavours but it lacks a rich character.  The finish is of medium length.

    According to Prof. Schobert this cask most probably matured on the mainland and not on Islay.
