Nose
Grassy. Dry herbs in the meadow. A faint bonfire smoke. Earl grey tea. Delivers more spices when well aerated. Cinnamon. Quite perfumy.
Palate
Surprisingly sweet at start. Smoky. Then a spicy burst kicks up the tastebuds.A bit brutal.
Finish
Warm,slightly burning.
Comment
Anenticing nose,a gentle feel but the alcohol spoils the pleasure. It needs a good dash of water to be drinkable but then loses some aromatic impact.

Nose
Smoke oily fish with a fruit compote topping
Palate
Oily mouth feel,but relatively gentle peat,tar and fish mix.
Finish
The whisky coats the mouth so the taste fades fast then lingers on low volume.
Comment
Proof that we're not quite scraping the bottom of the Port Ellen barrel just yet.
