Colour: gold. Nose: a classically tarry and rather mineral Port Ellen that smells almost like brand new rubber boots. Very nice coastal notes flying around, seaweed, seashells… Also a little diesel oil, roots. Very ‘idiosyncratic’ and in that sense lovable. Mouth: excellent attack, rather oily, on lemon and peat, then a development on oysters and kippers. Slight fizziness. Finish: rather long, more peppery. Quite some salt in the aftertaste, brine. Comments: so good, so far. A PE at a perfect drinking strength. SGP:347 - 88 points.
