9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.15 points

  1. Drochaid scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    With over 200 different cask types maturing in our warehouses, our cask exploration series showcases the influence of wood on our heavily peated spirit. Bottled at 59.2% alcohol and in limited numbers, we introduce the Port Charlotte MRC:01 2010. Distilled from 100% Scottish barley, from the Invernesshire region, this sweet and fruity spirit has spent time in first fill American whisky casks and second fill French wine casks. These component parts have been combined and matured for an extra year in the finest French oak from the Bordeaux left bank. (www.bruichladdich.com)

    Colour: maple syrup
    Nose: lots of sticky fruit; plums and cherries in syrup. The smoke arrives shortly after. With water, the smoke dominates and is accompanied by salty fish, cumin and ham.
    Palate: very smoky, dominated by charcoal and BBQd meats. Adding water brings out smoked ham, cumin and pepper.
    Finish: smoky and reminiscent of seafood (lobster, prawns)
    Overall: Slightly disappointed at first tasting as the single Mouton Rothschild cask at Bruichladdich distillery was one of the best whiskies I've ever tasted and I was excited to try this due to that experience. My first impression was that the sweetness and the smoke didn't integrate and it became sickly rather quickly. On my second sitting (with notes) the smoke was more dominant with the sweetness more of a lingering overtone. It may be the glassware or just the difference between different sittings but it seemed more well integrated. It combines many of the pleasures of young peated whisky with a 'dessert whisky' sweetness that adds to the complexity. Nonetheless, it's nowhere near as complex or as smooth as the single cask I tried at the distillery!

    Somewhen last year I tried to establish a rule of thumb. Never buy a whisky, that is more expensive than its year statement times 10.

    Gladly I split three of those MRC01 Bottles for a small whisky lovers group and had around 25cl to spare. After spendings some time with this "thing"... I ordered another bottle just for me.

    I don't exactly get what it does for me, its heavy, its peaty, its sweet, its red whiny.
    Works well without water, works well with water.

    Near to the top and one of the better peaty ones of 2018

    It is already a bomb in the mouth, but unfortunately it sounds pretty fast too. Then you just have to pour more often ;-)
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intensive red wine aromas, ashy smoke, Mon Cherie, quite dry, dark chocolate, a good dose of acidity, creamy, vanilla, a little espresso, then warmed a bit spicy, a pinch of cinnamon, very chocolaty after the first sip
    • Taste
      91 91
      Taste explosion in the mouth, creamy, full-bodied, ashy smoke, caramel, cherries, overall rather dry, roasted aromas, cinnamon, really yummy
    • Finish
      87 87
      The cut was quite hard, the main aromas were gone from now on, no smoke to find, still slightly creamy, but not much, and even at the second sip quite short, but at least a little longer, with nuts, still slightly smoke , light sweetness, fruity, maybe the cut but only so hard, because he is so extremely intense at the beginning

    Unfortunately unfinished and not well balanced. Alcoholic sharpness clouds the otherwise quite passable overall impression. The wine barrels have a good name, but ultimately also some voodoo and marketing magic, because they leave a particularly distinctive note. If I think of the Tuscan edition of Edradour, then it would have become a shoe out of it. The whisky lacks maturity and age, as well as no benefit. Unfortunately for the price more than disappointing.
