New 22YO Port Ellen Release - OMC

Postby tombrisbane » Sun Nov 05, 2006 7:17 am

Hi All

Just wondering if anyone has tried the new release of this, some is coming into Australia finally and want to pick up a bottle, but with it's hefty price tag want to make sure it's alright :) - I'm guessing it would be either a 2005 or 2006 release

Cheers.

Haven't had it, but if you were going to take a leap of faith on anything, an OMC PE would be a pretty good risk, I think.

Haven't tried it yet but I think I have an unopened 20cl bottle Advance Sample OMC of what you're referring to, 22yo Distilled: March 1983 Bottled: November 2005 from a refill hogshead. If it isn't the exact one it'll probably be very close.


Cheers!

I have an open bottle of 1983 22yo Port Ellen OMC. Refill Butt Unchillfiltered bottled at 50% ABV.

It is a gorgeous dram. I'm afraid my nose isn't up to much so all I get on it is a bit of seaweed and phenol. Peat comes in late on the palate after a sweet, toffeeish start. Sweet, smoky finish goes on forever.

If this is the bottle you are looking at you shouldn't be disappointed. :D

Always great stuff from the Douglas Laing Brothers!! I've had a few of their Port Ellen bottlings, 21y and 22y. Truly beautiful whiskies, I can highly recommend them. I have now also seen the 23y OMC from Port Ellen, probably brand new, barely released.
