Port Ellen 1979/2009 Old Bothwell

by Oliver Klimek on July 19, 2009

Cask 1654 – 52%


My Tasting Notes

Nose: Smoke, ham, slightly medicinal, gets stronger with a bit of water, then citrus notes emerge
Palate: Mild peat, spicy tannines, medicinal influence gets stronger with water, both a bit salty and sweet
Finish: Very long and salty-sweet
Overall: No peat monster but perfectly balanced with the wood influence caused by long maturation. Both complex and subtle as no aroma tries to dominate.

Score: 93/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
