One could argue that a few drops of Port Ellen in this Blended Malt can't make much of a difference, but it's a nice gimmick. Typical Islay peat smoke, coal tar and TCP dominate the nose, followed by fennel, baked banana and underlying Caol Ila sweetness. It's very raw, young and spirit-driven. On the palate, a phenolic blast of 'Big Peat' overwhelms the senses, very dry and edgy, subduing notes of honey, pears and subtle oak. Pineapple, menthol and a touch of briny seaweed subside in the long and peaty sweet finish. So where is the Port Ellen? I'm joking.
