The familiar Port Ellen nose of mustiness and sweet salt. On the palate there's smoke, a delicious tang of sweetness, and salt again. The finish is delightful! But it could be longer -- it's kind of on the shorter side of medium-length. This whisky is bordering on one-dimensional, but it's well-rounded enough and tasty enough to earn an I-definitely-want.
Great velvety texture with a stunning (perhaps ideal) duet of the expected Port Ellen peatiness dancing a tango with mulling spice sweetness, which adds a dimension that reinforces the other rather than fight it. Nice full-bodied finish will make strangers wonder why you are staring off into space with a goofy smile.
