Whisky reviews for Port Ellen 1982 McG

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 91.43 points.

  1. Vince scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Remarkable Port Ellen--the low ABV should not put people off. Smoke, sweetliquorish, seaweed on the nose. Hay. The palate a true flavour rainbow. Again some anis, sea salt, a bit of sherry, smoky and phenolic, beef stew, some oils-diesel, fish.
    A nervous whisky that keeps evolving as it sits. More ashes, minerals and rosemary. Eucaliptus oil. Sweetness prevails. Aftertaste lasts for hours indeed till the next morning. PE at its best.

    Tried at The Potstill Glasgow. Lucky me.

  2. Sir Provenance did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Original Tasting Notes:Distinctly Sherried to the eye, it is distinguished with Sherry on the nose, beyond which you can capture the salt and typical smokiness of Islay. Its mid- weighted body carries a tingle to the tongue and a palate that is explosively peppery, smoky and salty. The finish is contradictory, being sweet yet dry, full of wood smoke and earthiness.
