Adding product to your bagSome casks are born different. Here at Port Ellen we prize these ‘rogue’ casks. They are an inspiration for a distillery that has always followed its own heart, instead of the rules. When our master distiller discovered 9 of these casks from 1979 he saw an exciting opportunity to create something special.
Delicate, grassy/herbal, burnt tangerine skin, very mild smoke at cask strength, opens up a little with the addition of water, crème caramel/roasted coffee, red fruit compote, ripe peach skin.
Much more pronounced bonfire smoke, pipe tobacco, leather, wood spice.
Long, wispy smoke finish.
