Port Ellen 33yo 1982 XOP Bottling Note

33 year old Port Ellen, anyone? This indie bottling of single malt from the legendary closed distillery was bottled by Douglas Laing in honour of La Maison du Whisky's 60th Anniversary - that's quite a way to celebrate, we're sure you'll agree.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Fine, distinguished. Liquorice sticks and vanilla pods surge from within the glass. A very delicate and subtly medicinal peat then coats the aromatic palette. The nose shifts from a syrupy register to a more saline, iodised, camphoric and oily feel. A wonderful chocolatey bitterness, tangy fruits (pineapple, grapefruit) and a generous helping of smoke (fireplace) take over.

Palate: Lively, full-bodied. Remarkably well-balanced, the attack on the palate reveals an oily peatiness, thick smoke, intense spices (cinnamon, coriander), ripe fruits (pear, apple) and white florals (lily, lilac). The mid-palate is liquorice-infused and oily (olive, walnut). The peat turns drier and more saline (kelp)

Finish: Unctuous, creamy. Little by little, the peat transforms into fruit (mango, guava). This natural evolution is a reminder that this is a 33-year-old single malt, and an Islay to boot. The retro-nasal olfaction sees the peat make a triumphant and medicinal return to the limelight. The empty glass is characterised by notes of pipe tobacco, mimosa and liquorice.
