||Port Ellen – 32 Year Old – Old & Rare Edition
Country: Scotland Region: Islay
Age: 32 Year Old Strength: 54.80%
Summary: Douglas Laing & Co. proudly offer this fine example of the Distillers Art as a special selection from their oldest stocks of whisky. No water is added to reduce its strength, as the Angels share has already taken care of that. No caramel, colouring is added, so that you can see its pure and natural colour. They have chosen to bottle this malt without chill-filtration in the old fashioned and traditional style. By so doing, they leave in the entire Distillers preferred qualities apparent on the nose, palate and finish – self evident when you remove the cork. As you can see on the label, this is one bottle of a very restricted offering, which once consumed, cannot ever be repeated. Opens richly spiced, carrying a fresh leather character – still surprisingly peaty for its age with an earthy, smoked grist character. The palate is initially sweetly peated and runs to a smoke, toffee and spiced character – each pushing for more attention until they harmoniously join in the long finish. Now with salty liquorice – soot and a charcoal ashy quality.
