5. Port Ellen 37
Port Ellen is still a legendary dram from a legendary closed distillery, but we did bump it a few slots lower than most people would expect because of the outstanding releases under other names. This year’s release is just really dry and smoky, with just subtle traces of orchard fruits and a hint of mint. With water it becomes more earthy like leather and pipe tobacco, with an underlying pepper spice.
