1980 Port Ellen Single Malt Whisky (bottled in 2016)

Medium lemon coloured with pronounced aromas of seaweed, smoke, citrus, honey and touch of grainy notes. Water brings out some floral notes. It is dry with medium acidity, quite full bodied and quite high burning alcohol. On palate it gives quite high intensity flavours of tropical fruit, seaweed, smoke, honey and traces of malt and ginger. Fairly long length with honey lemon finish. (93)

Port Ellen 的酒初初聞好像很簡單似的,但慢慢會感受到不同的氣味,落點點水之後效果更加不同。酒香算複雜,亦有其特色,酒精感亦重,所以落水或冰飲會更好,餘韻亦長,令人回味,酒在口中的強度及複雜性也不錯,好酒一枝。
