  2. ctu scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Refined and gentle PE though, but very nice on the palate. 90/91.
    • Nose
      Restrained. Peat, waxy apple, cocktail cherry, rose, honey and salt. Carpenter workshop.
    • Taste
      Powerful, creamy and floral. Peat and oak. Honey, marzipan and spices: pepper and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long, creamy, oily, peaty, fruity.

  3. Luigisim scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very nice edition, sweet and gentle. Ideal for summer nights. Maybe missing just a bit of power.
    • Nose
      Soft and light. Balanced peat for such a gentle dram.
    • Taste
      Floreal sweet notes: yellow rose and yellow daisies
    • Finish
      Medium and gentle

    I like this and water is not needed, not an  in your face PE but a restrained one that has a nice profile.
    • Nose
      I think that is quite restrained for a Port Ellen at this strength, The peat is in the background, not distant but the fruit takes centre stage at first. After a few minutes its all changed and its the other way round. Plum, apple, peat, brine, burnt sugar 
    • Taste
      Very creamy and initially sweet but then bitter apple and plum skins emerge and it seems to get quite oily. There is a very  faint hint of marzipan, and sponge cake but the peat is really nice.
    • Finish
      Long with improving fruity sweetness
