Nose: Very clean peat notes with a sea water breeze, very coastal.
Palate: Sweet on the opening, then a nice march of peat with salt elements.
Sweet syrup + peat and salt = good stuff.
N: vanilla oil, new bandaids and a mild woodiness... and of course briney and peaty
P: the smokiness and peat are more apparent on the palate with distinct charred notes of crispy bacon fat....mmmm bacon fat.
N: Nicely peated - tarry and industrial; slightly rubbery. Brine!
P: Big peat on the palate; lightly lemony and slightly malty. Heat builds as this one hangs on.
F: Heat continues from the palate. It still is industrial, surprisingly has a medicinal note not unlike Laphroaig for a second.
All in all, a nice Port Ellen.
Light color. Earthy and peaty on the nose. On the palate not unlike a campfire, with smoke and wood. Goes down nicely with a long draw. [3/20/12]
