Port Ellen 25 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Islay.

Appearance

Pale gold. Faint green tinge.

Nose

A clean, fresh nose, even creamy, with little prickle. Fruit in front (subtle tinned apricots, even some citric notes) with the faintest thread of mossy smoke behind. Traces of putty then emerge. Water brings up more smoke, but there’s still fruitiness in the foreground – now fruity boiled sweets.

Body

Soft, oily, sensuous.

Palate

Gentle and well-mannered, but with stacks of Port Ellen character. Some acidity and saltiness, later drying. Very slow build up to a tremendous crescendo of herbal flavours - dill, parsley and mint.

Finish

A long, cool, smoky finish. Hints of linseed oil in the lingering aftertaste.
