Nose: Honeycomb and chocolate raisins, coconut, damson jam, quince cheese, grapes and very soft smoke. Not one of the most peaty Port Ellens so far.
Palate: Blackberries, guava, and also something which I probably shouldn't put (let’s just say it’s not unlike the flavour of tomato skins in a greenhouse). India rubbers, pepper, dry oak, under-ripe apples, pear skins and mango.
Finish: Quite smoky now with coal, maple syrup, corn soot and rum spice.
Overall: Another fascinating whisky – utterly divine.
