I don't think it has any port influence. It certainly tastes and looks sherried and is probably a vatting of sherry and bourbon casks (80 - 20, say).
It's been a long time since I tasted it as like a lot of people I was chased off by the "perfume".
I would have stood it next to my Lahroaigs meself. Lots of fun nonetheless.
Just looking up Jim's notes from the 2006 Bible. He describes it as " Uncultured and tattooed...asking for a punch-up! Smoke all the way...A roughneck...!"
He gives it 89, so we agree on one Bowmore at least!(He hated the Darkest...)
Nor do i remember any noxious perfume...
