Tasting Notes

Nose

Quite austere, linseed oil, pepper, olive with phenolic notes of tar/creosote, sea shells, a light kippery note, pipe smoke.

Palate

Great savoury start. Bursts in the mouth. Still austere, the olive and tarry smoke is there but spice as well. Huge presence.

Finish

Long, powerful.

Comment

Classy. A top-notch Port Ellen which manages to be austere yet filled with texture and rich flavours.
