Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte 2001 Arc

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.27 points

  1. schero scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A terrific Port Charlotte, which makes me curious to wait for more barrels of this age. The price is very ambitious, which scares me to put a complete bottle in the closet. However, I am very happy to have shared a bottle. Geiler shit! Water is highly recommended!
    • Nose
      Baconous and fat smoke, but not intrusive, in between expresses a mango, as they could be barely sweeter, star fruit, baked apple, the alcohol is terrifically involved, you have to really ranziehen that you feel the 60%, water intensifies the yellow Fruits even and adds a beautiful coton tone to the whole
    • Taste
      Very sweet first touch on the tongue, then the alcohol makes slight pressure and the smoke comes into play at the same time, here dominate now more citrus notes and a mineral note a la Springbank, very beautiful and overall extremely creamy, with water it is even creamier and each Quantity of vanilla comes to it
    • Finish
      Wow, what a fight between fruit notes and smoke, but here nobody wins, at the same time spread smoke and yellow tropical fruits

    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1668
    • Nose
      Iodized smoke. Lemon and tangerine. Green malt that asserts itself. Then a real basket of fruits that unfolds! Port Charlotte the most fruity I have tasted, I think.
    • Taste
      Juicy and fruity, it is creamy. Peppery, peaty, spicy, it is as deep. Equilibrium quite remarkable.
    • Finish
      Sweet spices, oily. Strength and finesse. Slight bitterness.

  4. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This particular Port Charlotte is noticeably better than the sister cask #276 that Archives bottled the year before -- less ethanol sting, more balanced, and less oaky.

    https://www.whiskynotes.be/2017/bruichladdich/port-charlotte-2001-archives-2002-kjell-oberg-2008-maltbarn/

    Nose: beautiful nose. There are some farmy notes (wet sheep) and wet ashes, but also lots of fruits. Mango, melons, bananas. Fatty, greasy peat. Tarry ropes. Hints of pipe tobacco, including a hint of vanilla and white chocolate. The fruitiness and richness are great.
    Mouth: sweet onset but less fruity than expected from the nose. Dry smoky notes and then a big mineral side with some herbal, faintly bitter edges. Mexican peppers.
    Finish: long, on smoke, minerals and a cautious return of sweetness.The bright fruitiness and the typical Port Charlotte smokiness combine wonderfully here. Although the palate is less surprising, this is my favourite bottling of this series.
