Our sixth batch of Port Ellen single malt won an enviable award from The Spirits Masters on Friday - Scotch Whisky Taste Master!
We're always very excited to add more awards to our already sizeable collection (not that we're bragging or anything - good heavens, no!), so it's with great pride to announce that we snapped up a big one at The Spirits Masters 2017 on Friday...
Our bottling of 33 year old single malt from the legendary Port Ellen distillery was named Scotch Whisky Taste Master! There is only one Taste Master awarded per competition to the spirit deemed best in its class, and our Port Ellen 33 Year Old was up against stiff competition, with over 200 entrants in the running for this coveted title. To say we're chuffed to bits would be an understatement!
Since we're talking about it, we reckon that it's probably worth revisiting the this glorious whisky's tasting note. You know. For scientific purposes only.
Nose: Smoky toffee, salty BBQ’d lemons and a damp earthy forest floor.
Palate: Rich, sweet, and smoky, Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit chewing gum, spicy citrus notes and a deep, earthy smoke.
Finish: Salty liquorice, a citrus tang and earthy peat that lingers for an eternity.
And that's not all! The 15th batch of our bottling of Invergordon single grain Scotch whisky also picked up a Master Medal at The Design & Packaging Masters! A bounty of brilliant awards!
