Port Ellen 1979 22 Year Old 1st Release (2001) Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Tasting Notes

Nose: Soft peat rises out of the glass with tangy sea salt and green grape aromas.

Palate: The palate is bold but not over powering; clean menthol and peaty iodine roll around with refreshing clarity.

Finish: It seems infinite, it is like the Islay shoreline is lapping at the back of your mouth as sweet vanilla, smoke and menthol swirl about.
