  3. croz scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A great Port Ellen, gets better with just a drop of water
    • Nose
      Tar, medicin and liquorice.

      With water: More sea, violet, salt and smoke 
    • Taste
      Sea salt, delicate white wine.

      With water: liquorice, salt, more mellow
    • Finish
      Long with salt and liquoriceWith water: Still long, the smoke comes forward.

  5. Roman scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    yummy stuff that only gets a bit too salty at the end
    • Nose
      Salt, sea, grain, beautiful maritime as if you were on Islay
    • Taste
      vieeeel salt that slowly becomes sweet - sounds funny but it is, a hint of aromatic peat, with water it is rounder and fuller, not quite like a typical PE but a worthy representative
    • Finish
      long, tasty but a little too salty
