new bottling – Port Ellen 1983 26yo

Rarest of the Rare – Port Ellen 1983 26yo Cask 674  54.6%

Tasting Notes by Mark:

Colour:  Polished Mahogany 

Nose:  Sweet, dry smoke, smoked cheese, sandalwood.  Black cherries, a little creamy – antiseptic cream and pepper. 

Taste:  Initial hit of ash, then big blood orange notes.  Marzipan, dry smokiness.  Cocoa, raisins, figs and a soft creaminess. 

Finish:  Long lingering dry smokiness, giving way to big rich red fruits, white pepper and wet ash. 

Comment:  Like eating fruit in a Sauna!  An exceptional whisky!

    Hello Mark :) This sounds really good. PE from sherry cask in a fruity shape… Could help us to get a bottle? I would like to present this exact bottling to our Polish customers and whisky-fans… As far as I know DT did not appoint the distributor in Poland yet (?), and the price form UK retailers is sky-high already ;) Thanks in advance and best wishes to all DT staff in Huntly, especially Jacque!
