    I have to pinch myself when i see the beautiful guys at TBWC stand pouring Port Ellen. Puts some stands to shame. I forgot i’d had this already at Whiskylive 2017 and loved it.

    N: Probably too early for me to get into all this has to offer. Salty bourbon, a few mussels, squeezed lemon…
    T: Bitter woody honeyed arrival. Adding water coaxes [light] lemons, lifts the wood and promotes the grain.
    F: Smoked honeyed oak with aniseed later on. Love the sweet wood smoke on the tail.
    C: A totally different experience to when i tried it in March, but as i said, it’s early on day 2 and Day 1 was action-packed. Feels a tad overaged today or is that me?Scores a B[-]

    JG gives me the best send off. Quite unexpectedly and right at the very end of the show comes a surprise whisky that is wholly pleasing to my entire being.
    N: Sweet & soft lemons, oysters, old leather and mineral peat - that’s Port Ellen right there. Easy chat and lovely integration of flavours, nothing short of old style brilliance.
    T: As the nose had indicated, it’s archetypal Port Ellen. Ok, there’s some congestion mid palate but boy it's delicious.
    F: Heathery bourbon, lemon sweet, some soot, mildew oak and mildly saline driftwood. There's enough time to take a pic with WhiskyWings before the oaky grapefruit note arrives minutes later. So good.
    C: Recipe-wise, nothing is over done, such is that old style. Easily the best whisky of the show, though the Bunna was up there. Scores 91, maybe even 92.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose:
    Earthy peat with a portion of BBQ'd meat at the core. Flamed orange
    peel, classic chamois and lemon sherbets (as featured on the label).
    Further complexity is added by hints of blackberry bushes, cough syrup,
    aloe, honey, dark Fruit Pastilles... We could keep going.
    Palate:
    Thick and mouthcoating with charred pineapple, oak and Sichuan pepper.
    Oily barley, smoky vanilla pods and further helpings of creamy tropical
    and citrus sweetness. Sublime.
    Finish: Rye, more BBQ'd pineapple, ash, Juicy Fruit and toasted brown sugar. Very long.
    Overall: Simply jaw-dropping stuff.
