Whisky Reviews for Port Ellen 1982 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.33 points

  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very similar to the PE 34 XOP. Green grassy notes with fresh green apples and raw barley. That one takes you to the beach, this one barely reaches the beach, only touching the fields of green.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet, grassy, fruity. Fresh summer fruits. Smoke is light and not overpowering.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Vanilla, toffee, fudge, some popcorn, morning dew, tropical rainforest, Moss, smoked salmon, baked beans and damp cat fur.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Weak finish with plenty of charred oak smoke. Slightly oily and buttery with a slight tingle of raw vanilla bean coated with cacao.

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Douglas Laing & Co
    • Nose
      Elegantly old Islay in style on the nose. Sweet peat, malted barley, sand-dunes and green fruits.
    • Taste
      A welcome hint of tobacco on the palate develops to slightly burnt buttered toast, vanilla fudge and damp earth.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a smoky style with a leather and salty tang and a touch of dark chocolate and charred oak.
