Port Ellen 32YO 1983 Bottling Note

32 year old single malt Scotch whisky from an Islay distillery that was mothballed in 1983 and never reopened. The whisky comes from the final year of production. Matured in refill European oak butts it's a release of 2,964 individually numbered bottles. Highly sought after, there won't be too many more releases of this legendary malt.

This bottle was part of a private collection.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: More creamy and less green or coastal this year with complex caramels, just a hint of smoke and some menthol edge.

Palate: It just grows and grows with each sip. Hints of coconut initially before those deep, sometimes dark caramels take centre stage augmented by a plethora of rich juicy prunes and dates, treacle, honey, raisins... All totally integrated.

Finish: Dry, earthy oak before it becomes slightly cooling (perhaps a return of that menthol character).

Overall: Quite a departure from the '78s of the last two years, but a triumphant and eminently drinkable one even at full strength. Plenty of European oak influence, oodles of complexity.
