Whisky reviews for Port Ellen 1982 MoS

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 92.75 points.

  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Port Ellen 1982-2012, 30 years, 58.6%
    Bottler: MALTS OF SCOTLAND
    Expansion: Sherry barrel # 12017
    Region: Islay, Scotland
    Nose: Fruity, really elegant fruit aromas with a slightly smoky spice. I think of plum jam first, then limes and strawberries, old leather and a little pepper. Then a touch of ash - wonderfully round.
    Palate: The fruit notes are still there, but have been relegated to the background by the peppery peat smoke. White pepper, sea salt, grilled fish and ash are in the foreground, followed by coffee, seaweed and dark chocolate.
    Finish: very long, dry and quite salty. A lot of oak, next to it pepper and chilli, some grapefruit.
    Conclusion: Great Port Ellen!

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=214 Color: golden yellow Nose: Very pleasant and fruity round first impression in the nose. Sweet peat and smoke combine well with delicate flavors of lime, plum and raspberry with vanilla. White peppercorns make their mark through the fine, dry Sherry sweetness. Taste: Salty, peppery, peaty and smoky. Again lemon and vanilla, but only a little sherry influence. Ashes, tart mocha notes with hints of a beach fire with a salty sea breeze. Finish: Long salty and again with dull red fruit flavors. Rosehip tea, oak with delicate bitter notes. Towards the end, the sweetness comes out again. 92 points (Nose: 92 / taste: 92 / finish: 91)
