N: Slightly industrial peat, lightly malty, gentle fruit.

 

P: Nice, white pepper, gentle malt, slightly industrial again with tar and diesel. Apple skin shows and a nice hint of sticky toffee.

 

F: Industrial, tarry diesel leads; good wood influence and apple skin brings up the rear.

 

A little sweeter & sharper than other Port Ellens out there. The apple skin is not a note I commonly get from Port Ellen but it worked nicely here.

Nose:  Light sherry and light smoke, matchsticks.

 

Palate:  sweet and light sherry up front, then smoke and a bit of perfume.

 

Finish:  Sweet on the tongue but the smoke wins out, like a BBQ pit.

N: Resinous pine trees, minerals, charred meats, lilies, cinnamon, toffee and peanut brittle


P: Crisp ashy peat with olive oil. Black tea and licorice work alongside sweet oranges.


F: Clean finish: tarry, waxy and lightly peated
At first I wasn't a big fan of this. But give this a bit of time to air out. The sherry component really reveals it self after after some time and made this a lot more enjoyable.

Very faint amber color. Overall, a very wood dram, but something I really enjoyed. Spicy and vanilla forward nose. Get a lot of smoke, wood and a cabinet full of spices on the tongue. [4/19/13]
