Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1982 McC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.72 points

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Powerful yes, but with great complexity too! A superb finesse on the nose, and rounded power in the mouth. A very nice whisky, even though Port Ellen remains far from being my favorite distillery.
    • Nose
      A fine smoke that mixes with a little camphor. A mineral rise of stone and foliage (OK, it's not mineral, foliage, I know) wet. I can also detect fruit this smoke and mineral barrier: red apple, lemon zest, grape liquor.
    • Taste
      A nice tasty power input, which still swells as the distillate remains in the mouth. Red apple syrup, ash smoke, and a large handful of spices. The texture is fat.
    • Finish
      Very long. A slight woody dryness, quickly obscured by the smoke that remains ubiquitous (and goes back in the nose), and lemon droplet grapes.

  2. The Whisky Cyclist scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is subtle at first, but give it some time, and it is very fine!

  3. hartist scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    My only Port Ellen tasted so far but even if the price is crazy, you have to taste one once in your life.
    • Nose
      Airy and greasy peat with multiple notes of juicy and tasty fresh fruits; slight tendency to fade with aeration.
    • Taste
      The attack on the palate turns out to be supple but a sumptuous material with a greasy tendency appears then with a flamboyant peat on tarred notes, herbaceous, fruity which evolve constantly. What flavors!
    • Finish
      Very beautiful length all in magic finesse and sumptuous elegance.
