Another Port Ellen in collection

I have added another Port Ellen to my collection. This Port Ellen is from 1983 and is a 27 Year Old  - bottling  by independent bottler Duncan Taylor. The Port Ellen distillery closed a number of years ago now and as time passes its whiskey has become harder and harder to hind. I have never had a bad experience buying any of DTs 'rarest of the rare' range. Have 2 on hand as one is for the collection and one is to enjoy.

Here are the distillery tasting notes:
Colour: Bright Gold
Nose: Sweet, gooseberries, oily, shortbread, custard, grassy, soft smoke
Taste: Light wet ash, olive oil, smoked cheese, waxy, slightly farmyard like
Finish: Quite creamy, touch medicinal with burnt wood and orange sherbet
