Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Peaty! Slightlly flinty to begin with then comes smoked meats,Polish smoked sausage with a sweet touch ofhoneydew melon.
Palate: A slight pause and then a mix of sweet tropical fruits backed by creosote like smoke. Oily yet fresh with a subtle depth. Great power,even better balance.Exemplary
Finish: Hint of soot.
Comment: This is top notch stuff. One of the best Port Ellen's for some while. Snap it up.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Smoky and briny. Burning seaweeds. Dry ashes. A sweet whiff of vanilla. Lemon sherbet. Garden mint.
Palate: Smooth with a lovely satin-like feel. Smoke and sweet maltiness combine with a minty touch. Refreshing andstraightforward.
Finish: Dry, slightly sooty. A sweet spearmint comes back.
Comment: A very pleasant Islander. Well balanced and thirst-quenching.
