Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen Port Ellen Maltings

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.64 points

  1. Allandale scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Body: Exceptionally  oily, creamy.
    • Nose
      Very medicinal but clean and firm.
    • Taste
      Smooth and deceptively restrained at first, then the tightly combined flavours emerge: bay leaves, parsley, peppercorns.
    • Finish
      Slowly unfolding. Salty,smoky, oaky. Very warming. A subtlety  and very complex.

  2. wheatfield scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Despite being a legendary bottle released in 1999, it's almost impossible to find tasting notes of this anywhere. I'm happy to be the first to enter notes here. Drinking it next to Port Ellen 10th to mark the occasion. The nose has that creamy, tarry nuance that I find in good Port Ellen bottles, but it has an extra layer of intensity that's maritime and almost varnish-like. Big and burning. Mouth is sharp and chiseled with a massive amount of peat smoke, citrus rind, almost a mineral acidity. Develops with varnish and even numbs across the finish. Crazy! And really sharp flavors - ginger, cinnamon, horseradish. I think it's bigger and more interesting than the 10th, which is a splendid subtle whisky of its own. Adding a little water allows more nectarine, cream, and vanilla to come out. Palate is thick and juicy. Absurdly good, even better than the 10th.
