Member Ratings and Notes
[No Notes] 
N: A wisp of sulfur on top o walnut tort.
P: Quite flowery with lots of dried fruits, apricots and bananas, with moderate peat.
F: Banana bread. 
The nose is soft and sweet peat and the palate is a bit grassy with some softer peaty notes and really easy drinking.  Not great but solid Port Ellen.
