PORT ELLEN - 24 Year Old Distilled 1978Islay Malt Whisky
Delicately phenolic. Summer shower on a bonfire. Shellfish. Sea-lettuce. Cinnamon. Thyme. Hint of leather.
Palate.Sweet maltiness and butterscotch balanced by the sharpness of the spirit. Herring in oatmeal.
Finish. Dryness. Fizzy pepperiness.
More body and richness than the '79. Still not a great warrior but a hearty fisherman.
