Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1982 DL

- You have to look for the sherry, but that's not bad at all because this Port Ellen really has a lot to offer. The full review can be found here: https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2021/12/15/port-ellen-hoch-drei/
- This is what I mean, thinking Port Ellen.
- Citrusy peat then tobacco leather chocolate orange, maybe lacks a bit of balance but really good nonetheless, the finish is really nice on orange marmalade and some papaya
- Raisins, smoke, limestone, firewood, citrus, smoked ham and shoe polish. Great whisky!
Thanks to www.whiskysample.nl for this great chance!
- Sample from www.whiskysample.nl
Sherry bomb with leather, dates, pepper and ashes.
Ashes, pepper, baked black pudding, smoke, peat and gun powder.
BBQ flavours, fire works and ginger cookies with cinnamon.
- [November, 2001] I had this dram during a Jim McEwan tasting while cruising the river Rhine aboard MS Godesia. 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 a very dark sherry profile with intense, bold aromas. There is an unusual strong smoked bacon aroma (never had this in a Port Ellen before) and a long finish. I called it a "Geschmacksbombe" (flavours bomb) despite the slight sulphury notes (gunpowder).

Nose: The first thing that shows in the glass is: wood! In addition, a lot of dry sherry, cocoa, dark chocolate, raisins, ashes and aromas of orange liqueur (Grand Marnier). Overall, quite dry and very peppery in the nose.
Taste: Sweet sherry, strong salty orange, red grape, some dark chocolate and hints of wild honey. Bitter wood is added and at the same time more intensive peat and tobacco smoke.
Finish: Long - still a little residual sweetness from the honey and the fruits, but rapidly blending into the wood. Dry-bitter oak wood tannins ultimately remain on the tongue.
Remark: The finish is quite blatant!
88 points (nose: 90 / taste: 90 / finish: 85)
