Så er det med at være hurtig på tasterne hvis man skal gøre sig forhåbninger om at få den nye Pe2 - en flaske per kunde. Bemærk - det er en 0.5 liter flaske

TWE's smagsnoter:
Nose: I let the bottle sit open for a few minutes before pouring. At 59.5%, I usually find most drams need a bit of aeration before I can get the best out of them.
First impressions in the glass: chocolate, very old leather suitcases, balsamico, then a faintly leafy sweetness. Resinous, gammony. Another couple of minutes in the glass reveal rosehip syrup, lovely damp earthy notes, Chinese balloons, syrup, treacle tart, hints of black liquorice. Gamey, minty. Eventually, some woodsmoke, cigar box aromas and some citrus: lemon zest, orangey fruit. Another few minutes of restraint and it's all apricots, wet flint, plums and dates. Finally, after perhaps 45 minutes, we arrive at a delicious orange, dark chocolate liqueur. In a word: Stunning.

Palate: Pretty full, but very drinkable even at full strength. A wash of coaldust and bonfire woodsmoke, with some dried peat. Chocolate hints. Very lively, it fairly fizzes around the tastebuds. Some spice and mocha. Becomes warming mid-palate as the bonfire peat kicks in. Water tames the fiery roar and lifts the sweetness, while retaining a peaty kick. In a word: Maelstrom.

Finish: Good length. Becomes drying, with a little chilli heat; as the phenols fade, a honeysuckle sweetness and some fruity notes emerge. In a word: Beautiful.

Comment: Another majestic PE. Any sherry cask of this age (minimum 27 years old) that has only dropped a few points abv is likely to do something pretty special to the spirit inside. You have to like peat and sherry, obviously, but fans of the last Pe1 won't be disappointed with this "“ from memory, I think it's very similar - possibly a little sweeter. I lit a cigarette and asked my glass ‘How was it for you?'.

Har fået min i dag - kan fint anbefales. Dejlig lille Port Ellen.

Gordons smagsnoter er klart de bedste og mest præcise. TimF blev alt for ivrig i at slå op i Maltporn Handbook™. Det ændrer ikke på det er en fin lille flaske Port Ellen.

PE 2 blev udsolgt på 24 timer - nu banker PE 3 på døren.
Port Ellen PE3 (54%, Elements of Islay 2010, 50 cl.)
The third their in the PE family "“ PE3 "“ has been announced.
Judging by the colour, it will not be a sherry cask this time. It's safe to expect a completely different profile.
It will be bottled at 54% and sold for € 215, a significant step up from the previous editions
Keep an eye on the TWE or LMdW websites if you want to get this.
