Nose: Rich notes of overripe grape and a little calves leather. Barley malt, hints of light citrus and intense spice.
Palate: Rich, salt caramel-led palate with big, fresh slabs of peat to the fore. Very citrus-rich, with a touch of mahogany, maple syrup and smouldering malt.
Finish: The finish is all about freshly zested lemons and black pepper.
Overall: A classic Port Ellen - big, smoky, and with a barrage of fresh citrus! Delicious.
