Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte MC:01

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.68 points

  1. VaryingViewpoint scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    My brother was lucky enough to find this in a store in Calgary even though these are exclusive "Travel Retail". This happens sometimes in Alberta when some Travel Retail bottlings find their way into some regular retail stores.

    So I asked to try it before they all disappear to see if I want some for myself. At around $140cnd, I'll pass. It's good, but I can purchase Octomores for the same price, so I don't feel the value's there in comparison and there's nothing special about it other than the fact we are not suppose to have the opportunity to purchase such a bottle.

    This might improve with oxidization, but it's not my bottle so I maybe missing something special on the development as the bottle empties.

    This is the ugliest bottle I've ever seen. It looks like it came from a hospital or lab. Ugh!
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet tobacco, slightly burt caramel, some other stuff I can't put my finger on.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and very thick mouth feel; heavy tobacco, light caramel with very slight fruitiness.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium, slight bitterness on the backend. It's not that complex and the finish does not add much if anything to the experience. It's okay.

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    For me, not the high flyer that many see in him, but also no disappointment. Simply a solid bassy PC from an interesting barrel.
    • Nose
      Stings something in the nose at the beginning, but that flies, if you give it some time, greasy smoke, not too strong smoke in the nose, some dark chocolate, but the smoked bacon is dominant, take your time is worth and a little warming does not hurt either , then it opens properly, then much more chocolaty, nut flavors, a bit of sulfur, some mint, the ashy smoke comes through with time more
    • Taste
      oily, full-bodied, spicy smoke, sweet milk chocolate with a hint of cinnamon, very creamy, caramel, this typical Laddienote, then dry, red fears, then swinging again and again sweetness
    • Finish
      very ashy smoke, nuts, a memory of chocolate

  3. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Dried fig initially with fresh baked sweet pastries. Teasing smokes with fried savoury fish bone and shells notes come thru, the contrast are obvious and needing time to integrate. (87/21)

    P- Sweetness are pretty intense now, though on the herb-y side with more sweet peat, raisin and dried fruits emerge, herbal liqueur. Thick yet still soothing natural sweetness cling on the lips. (87/21)

    F- Long, vanilla, dried fruits and warming, bespoke after dinner dram for Christmas dinner. Funky and playful at times with also heavy oak influence and strength to drive the intense but rounded flavours. (88/22)

    B/B- 87/21

    Cereal- 1, Fruity- 2, Floral- 1, Peaty- 2, Feinty- 2, Sulphur- 0, Woody- 3, Winery- 4

    Weighted Rate- 85pt
    — at APW Bangsar.
