  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.

  8. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Today I revisit this from a recently opened bottle in my collection. My scoring of 90 from 2017 was from a sample received from friends. Enjoyed it very much at that time so let's see how it is now.

    Nose begins with freshly cooked bacon grease, ash, tropical fruits, then some tire rubber, smoke and just of touch of iodine.

    Palate starts soft with honey and tropical fruits before getting to campfire smoke with a slightly tangy and pleasant bitter note ending out before the finish.

    The finish continues where the palate left off with fading honey and tropical fruits followed by pepper, smoke, crisp bacon and wood spices.

  10. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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.
