Islay67590Wonderful sherry nose with a note of peppermint; very nice palate: at first sweet with sherry and quite a bit of peat, then turns spicy and fiery; very nice finish with mint and iodine; all in all very nice yet a bit unbalanced
Port Ellen 56.2%Pic1979
Islay56090The 1st release. Slightly musty at first but soon gets better; the palate is complex, a little fruity and very nice and develops wonderful peaty/minty notes
Port Ellen (DL) 61.1%Pic1982-Feb
Islay   90Interesting, unusual, "creamy" fruitiness on the nose; the palate is fairly mild, balanced, complex with a light fruitiness; an unusual but rather nice Port Ellen (bottled for PLOWED)
Port Ellen 57.4%Pic1979
Islay45090The 5th release. Quite peaty but also light and clean with very nice fruity notes, develops oaky spices; oaky, peaty finish; compared to the 1st release: lighter and less peaty; milder and less complex

Islay57289Fairly powerful nose with peat but also wonderful notes of citrus fruits; milder palate that retains most of the fruitiness, also oaky with a note of liqourice - very nice
Port Ellen

Islay78787Very sherried (and with a nice sherry), also quite peaty; a wild combination but it works rather well
Port Ellen (DL) 50%Pic1979-Sep
