Port Ellen 1978 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Bottler's Tasting Notes

    Robustly and distinctly sherried on the nose, it is only on "opening" that its salty and maritime heritage is revealed, so what a surprise on the palate when the phenolic qualities of Islay impact massively, combined with ginger and all manner of tongue-tingling spices together with the sherry's fructiferousness [Note: This is not a misprint. We think they might mean 'abundant fruitiness' - TF.]

    Its finish is long, smoky and spicy, with the typical Port Ellen leathery characteristics.
