hs305 gave this whisky 90 points

[October, 2000]  I had this dram during a Port Ellen rarities tasting at Rolandsbogen. 

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90 points.  My notes state it is a quite unusual Port Ellen with almost no peaty flavours but sweet and well balanced.  A very sippable dram.

By the way, at this tasting you could buy this excellent Port Ellen bottling https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/1927/port-ellen-1981-tb for 189 Deutschmarks
(95 Euros), or this breath-taking Brora https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/2388/brora-1981-tb for just 10 Deutschmarks more (99 Euros). 

There is no accounting for taste...
