Port Ellen 30 Year Old (Douglas Laing) Review

Port Ellen 30 Year Old This Port Ellen 30 Year Old was tasted back in April 2014 on a visit to Douglas Laing HQ in Glasgow.

getting to try one Port Ellen was lucky, getting to try 2 was just outstanding, this time from an ex sherry cask, this really works well and i think it was my favourite of the two, Neil (@neilmackinnon1) was also in heaven with these two drams.

I'm not sure which bottling this became and the ABV is a guestimate but oh my the Port Ellen drams that Douglas Laing have squirred away will only get better from here.

Thanks again to Douglas Laing for having us over at their HQ and to Jan (@whiskyjan) for taking us through the whiskies.

Tasting Notes & Details


Hiding in here is the typical edinburgh rock note that i get mixed with some lovely sweet smoke and sherry covered fruits, lots or real treacley goodness in here with dried fruits sneaking up at the end


sweet, chalky, edinburgh rocky, with a maltiness and lovely sweet velvety smoke that turns fruity in the mouth


sweet smoke and fruity edinburgh rock
