- Colour: Light gold
- Nose: Slightly peaty outdoors with countryside and distant cows grazing near a peat bog, or by a peat fire. Hints of wood.
- Palate: Smooth and slightly peaty with light hay, straw and open countryside.
- With 3 drops of water: A fresher slightly more aromatic nose and a little more spicy peat.
- Finish: Long, even longer with water.
- Overall Impression: In my blind tasting I failed to recognise this as a Port Ellen, how could I? It does have some typical PE traits and is a fine, subtle Islay. |
