Port Ellen 12th Release Bottling Note

It’s a Port Ellen, it’s rare and everyone wants some but well… it’s easy to see why. Bottled from a mixture of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks at 52.5%abv and with an impressive thirty-two years of cask ageing - this offering from the long-closed distillery is sublime.Only 2,964 bottles were released in the 2012 offering from drinks conglomerate Diageo.
One bottle per person.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Watermelon… quite literally, then comes Satsuma slices and that famous chamois leather with the faintest suggestion of lemon. There is a peat presence here but it is like the stage on which the actors play - it isn’t the focal point.

Palate: Woody peat followed by cream, butter icing, fresh-cut kiwi fruit and linoleum.

Finish: Chamois leather, dry bracken and smouldering wood embers form and long, rich finish.

Overall: Port Ellen is still hanging in there, this remains cracking whisky it’s a shame there’s not much of it left.

    so good

    Had this at Brasserie 19 last night in Houston. I was the first customer to open the bottle. I couldn't quite detect the watermelon, but definitely a hint of something citrusy, and the smokey flavor was very well done very leather and smouldering wood smoke finish. Bottle number 2625
