Port Ellen 1983 - 32 Year Old - 15th Release Scotch Whisky Tasting Notes

Nose: More creamy and less green or coastal this year with complex caramels, just a hint of smoke and some menthol edge.

Palate: It just grows and grows with each sip. Hints of coconut initially before those deep, sometimes dark caramels take centre stage augmented by a plethora of rich juicy prunes and dates, treacle, honey, raisins... All totally integrated.

Finish: Dry, earthy oak before it becomes slightly cooling (perhaps a return of that menthol character).
