Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : waxed teakwood.
  • Nose : elegant and discrete, dry overall, it opens to faraway and delicate note of smoke t be then layered by suave and smoky notes. First the spiral of smoke getting closer to present a more flavoured character, while there are delicious suave aromas drifting. A fresh note cross the layers in order to compete with the edge of sweet mint, and syrupy citrus edge. Showing up towards the end, subtle notes of cocoa, vanilla and smoky wood.
  • Palate : marvelous at its natural potential. Suave and drying. The omnipresent smoke becomes thicker, along with complex spices and botanicals.
  • Overall : lingering, refreshing and complex. Instantly appealing and sweet : caramelized apple, lemon zest and ripe red apple.
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.
