The 14th Special Release of Port Ellen is more elegant than last year’s – the wood tannins are subtle and the chamois leather not as prominent as one expects from Port Ellen – but that’s not a bad thing here.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Sweet smoke, leather books and leaf-like vegetalness.

    Palate: Oxo cubes and cinnamon and just the right amount of wood tannins,

    Finish: Long, with cinnamon there at the end.
