    Nose: some smoke with the addition of sweet elements. additionally palpable fruit. Of course, also sea salt.

    Taste: Notes are fairly hidden before adding water. With peat domination. After adding water, it becomes slightly creamy and fruits appear. Of course, in the background you can see oak and sea salt. All notes are very well composed.
    Rating: 93 100 Quite long peat finish. Classy whisky would know this bottle All notes nicely arranged in a subtle way. Unfortunately, in my opinion, you must have experience in whisky tasting to enjoy its taste, because not all notes are so easily perceptible.

    What can I say?
    Another wonderful Port Ellen, but best not add water. Just under 800 EUR, which
    is the new norm for Port Ellen. Unfortunately, for this is a great whisky. But
    certainly not a whisky for everyone’s purse.
    • Nose
      Camphor and mint come
      out first on this nose, that balances between sweet and salty. Loads of ginger,
      some vanilla and then the typical sea salt manifests itself. This is exquisite.
      Sniffing tobacco and candied oranges give it some extra sweetness. After a few
      moments it even becomes creamy, almost waxy. Slightly overripe banana?
      Beautiful! I added some water, which made the tobacco more prominent, but also
      a hint of plasticine emerges. That was not a good idea.
    • Taste
      The arrival is indeed
      wonderfully creamy and sweet on lemongrass and candied oranges. Then the peat
      takes the lead. Very smoky and salty on the palate. Peppery as well, with a
      hint of chili. Again ginger, upholstered with some liquorice. Diluted I get
      more oak, but also more salt.
    • Finish
      The finish is
      wonderfully long, smoky and salty.
