Nose: Huge, elegant aromas of fresh, tangy lemon, Refresher's sweets and soft smoke. A rich note of gingernut biscuits, cookie dough ice cream and candy floss too. Quite coastal.
Palate: Soft, luscious palate entry with lemon drizzle cake and sea spray. Not as smoky as you might expect, there is still a subtle peat flavour lurking in the depths. A touch of mixed peel and leather too.
Finish: Baking spices, fresh peach and sea air. A little mahogany.
Overall: A very complex, citrusy whisky. Unusually for Port Ellen, the peat takes a back seat...
