Nose: Soft peat rises out of the glass with tangy sea salt and green grape aromas.
Palate: The palate is bold but not over powering; clean menthol and peaty iodine roll around with refreshing clarity.
Finish: It seems infinite, it is like the Islay shoreline is lapping at the back of your mouth as sweet vanilla, smoke and menthol swirl about.
Overall: Superb balance and immensely potent. There is a reason why Port Ellen is so popular other than its value and rarity.
