Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré intense à reflets verts.
  • Nose : d'une finesse remarquable. Les agrumes et les fruits mûrs baignent dans une atmosphère de iodée, fumée, cendrée et réglissée. Il évolue sur l'anis et l'estragon. Le poivre, la noix de muscade et le paprika côtoient des notes de terre et d'humus. Tout est délié et d'une grande subtilité.
  • Palate : vive, élancée. Médicamenteuse avec ses notes de sirop pour la toux, elle révèle également le sirop d'orgeat. Evoque un cigare en combustion. Alors que le caractère médicinal s'accentue, les fruits exotiques et les herbes de Provence font une entrée en scène originale et remarquée.
  • Overall : un brin austère, elle s'ouvre finalement sur la cendre froide et la pomme. De plus en plus gourmande, elle dévoile des notes d'ananas frais et de sucre de canne. Elle se prolonge sur le pamplemousse jaune avant de revenir sur la tourbe et l'orge maltée fumée.
The brand

The brand

Built in 1824 in the south of the Isle of Islay, Port Ellen was the site of numerous technological experiments that revolutionised the whisky industry in the 20th century. Closed between 1930 and 1969, it opened a malting centre on its site in 1973 tasked with supplying all the distilleries on the island with smoky malted barley. Again closed in 1983, Port Ellen lost its production licence in 1992 and, with it, all hope of ever producing whisky again. At the beginning of the millennium, the majority of its buildings were knocked down, leaving only the pagodas and warehouses. Though the end of the 90s and the beginning of the millennium were a prosperous time for single cask, cask strength versions from independent bottlers, this very iodine and smoky malt has become increasingly rare over the last five years.
