Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte 2004 CS

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. Andara scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Should this really be a bourbon cask it was an hell of an active one :-) Maybe a wine cask? Nice notes of burnt leather.

    I can't imagine anyone just graduating would be excited by this. Probably the first and last whisky you would drink in a while, but I really like it.

  2. dumdi_san scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    According to the barrel owner, this is a bourbon barrel ripening - even if you may perceive sherry flavors

  3. ARDBERG scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    The refill sherry hogshead renders lots of nuances that, i.e. a first fill wouldn't. So there is a beautiful and matured balance between yellow and red fruits, the sherry, the wood and the medicinal peat.

    Fantastic. I'd say probably the best sherry PC that I have tasted so far, as this one gives an idea how a longer matured PC can develop and it is rather the contrary to the biff bang boom PCs which offer two dimensions: power and sherry - I enjoy this too, but with 13 years here it starts to get really interesting in more dimensions than just two.

    From a big bottle at the whisky club.

    => if it really is a bourbon hoggie (see dumdi_san): respect! and it would be particularly interesting to find out what was in the cask before... Whatever it was, it still reminds me much more of refill sherry than any refill bourbon I had before...
