Port Ellen 10th Release 31 Year Old Whisky

The now iconic annual release from Port Ellen.
A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt.
From Port Ellen, a closed distillery on the Isle of Islay.
Now very rare and highly sought after at this age.
Tenth of a very limited series of annual releases.
Annual allocation ensures availability of this irreplaceable malt for just a little longer.
From American and European Oak 1978 refill.
The oldest release and first 31 year old to come from the distillers.

A venerable, dignified Port Ellen of great complexity and depth; beautifully structured, assertive yet respectful and sure to please the make’s many enthusiasts. Utterly desirable.

Appearance: Amber. Good beading for its age.
Nose: Pleasingly fresh, with a mild prickle that dances round the nose, suggesting a youthful sparkle. Immediate wood smoke and majestic medicinal notes, then pine resin and faded pot-pourri (spice drawer). A salty breeze. Beneath this, a layer of comforting beeswax and honeyed fruit balanced by a buttery saltiness. Water liberates a wisp of smoky candle, classic antiseptic notes and cereals, yet the nose remains elusive and delicate.
Body: Full, viscous.
Palate: Gentle. Drinks well straight: sweetish and warming. Softly cooling at first, though, with a glorious interplay of spicy, syrupy ginger sweetness and a herbal bitterness. Soon, classic cleansing, medicinal flavours assert themselves, to stay. With water there’s a pleasing mouthfeel, the sweetish start balanced by more light herbal notes (tarragon). A taste from a bygone era.
Finish: Magnificent. Long and splendidly antiseptic, with sweet pine resins plus herbal and savoury notes (truffle). With water, soft dried fruit and vanilla notes flirt with lingering, scented coal-smoke, drifting over all
