A very old Connoisseurs Choice 1969 Port Ellen bottled in the mid-1980s. This little beauty got a hefty 92 points from Malt Maniac Serge Valentin's Whiskyfun website.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Extremely delicate at first nosing, with some superb notes of marzipan and whiffs of camphor and apple skins. Very subtle mix of peat smoke and grapefruit juice. A little tarry as usually but no brand new tyre this time. Really excellent, not much oomph but still a beautiful presence. Some hay. Gets peatier and peatier after a few minutes, and also quite waxy. Hints of diesel oil.
Very sweet and very peaty attack, with a great body and a perfect mouth feel. Some liquorice, bitter oranges – not fabulously complex in fact but very compact and satisfying. Rather long finish with a little eucalyptus and some marzipan again. A splendid dram, no doubt. 92 points.
