PORT ELLEN 24yo 1979 2003 70cl 57.3% OB - 3rd Release

The 3rd release in the series with 9,000 bottles produced this time.

Nose:
Grapefruit, honeycomb, biscuit and the peat obviously, but the peat is not as evident on the nose as it is in the 1st and 2nd release. A little lemon meringue pie, salted caramel, pastries , biscuit and a little cream with salt.

Taste:
Very similar to the 2nd release, but not quite as fruity. The peat while quieter on the nose is prominent on the palate and it is a creamy, thick peat. There is a little apple and grapefruit but it is well and truly in the back with the peat taking centre stage mixed in with salty brine.

Finish:
Good length staying peat with some ginger creeping in at the end.
