1979 Port Ellen 40 Year Old Casks Of Distinction #6819
Notes from the producer:
This superlative Port Ellen has a gentle nose-feel and a fruity top note. Beneath this hints of ash emerge and increase, joined by traces of linseed oil and butterscotch or soft fudge. The pleasant texture is lightly oily and the taste is sweet, then becomes spicier, with a shake of salt mid-palate and some white pepper. With water these tastes are softer, with noticeable peat smoke. The finish is long and lightly drying, with gentle white pepper tingling across the tongue and an elegant thread of smoke, which lingers in the aftertaste.
