As luck would have it I got to try Pe1 Elements of Islay just a few days ago. Single Cask I'm told so not an endless supply available. What a gem!

Its dark, like well brewed tea or an ashtray that's been left outside overnight and rained in a little.

I got a real whiff of Port Ellen as soon as it was in front of me. You get the Sherry immediately, sweetness, charcoal, ground peppercorns.

It's really complex - really, really complex. Fruity, meaty, coriander-y. Biltong. Amazing stuff from Port Ellen. Feels thin in the mouth. Goes down with a good kick and a Sherry hit.

Tobacco leaf and tree bark on the palate. Long lasting finish like Duracell.

Had it tonight on a tasting and it surprised me positively. A true Port Ellen in taste, it's dark and has a very rich taste from start to finish. I recommend it to everyone who loves Port Ellen
