Footnotes

  • Tasting note:

    Port Ellen – Cask No 1297

    Nose: The initial aroma is quite shy and teasing,
    with maritime aromas and fruit. Beguiling. With just a little water
    added, the sweetness is much more to the fore,
    suggesting a barley sugar sweet, and is joined by
    more of the smooth waxiness.

    Body: Light to medium.

    Palate: The taste starts sweet, then salty-spicy waves
    of pungent, maritime, deliciously smoky heat quickly
    and firmly adjust the initial impression.
    Water (only a little is needed) lightens the texture still
    more, bringing up the initial sweetness and later
    spiciness in perfect harmony while reducing the
    heat, with this cooling effect revealing more char and
    a touch of citrus fruit.

    Finish: Medium to long, charred and smoky-sweet,
    the char slowly fading into sweet-spicy oak, with a
    last note of white pepper to re-heat the palate.
