Port Ellen Lighthouse

Rating: 80-100 out of 10

Nose: clean and pretty timid. Peaty, sherried and fruity. Peat, fresh apples, dried fruits, than some leather bag.
Mouth: Quite sweet and peaty. Way more peaty than the nose suggests. Slightly metholated and medicinal. Packs quite a lot of punch. Treacle, dried fruits. Smells like old school peated whisky, think of a toned down, more rounded version of Ardbeg Corryvreckan.
Finish: more of the same, but surprisingly short.

This isn’t as stunning as I hoped in terms of complextity and development, but is seriously, no, dangerously drinkable.
