    Almost unbelievable this malt.
    Having found Port Charlotte and Brunello brilliant, that's a perfect combination.

    nice thing! That's how I like Port Charlotte!
    • Nose
      Laddie pure, the Laddie-caramel-sweet-biscuit-note rises directly into the nose, with significant wine influence, incredibly creamy and fruity, red fruits, raspberry syrup, a breeze ground nuts, a touch of sulfur, and behind all the sweet creaminess is also a veil that brings sour, almost dry notes.
    • Taste
      Oily and creamy, the red fruit in the foreground, dry and salty smoke, a touch of sulfur, vanilla, mineral and astringent, full-bodied, simply delicious, no need of water
    • Finish
      creamy, mineral, dirty with a little bit of sulfur, here smacking is fun, because it brings up new nuances again and again, smoke is more in the background

    Eye / nose
    Rich, amber Cognacton. Many small bubbles adorn the wall of my Glencairn, similar to a barely interrupted, almost flawless pearl necklace. At first, heavy sweet smoke wafts towards me from the hand-warm glass. Very intense and expansive. Nothing medical-phenolic, as known from other Islay smokers. The alcohol is not hiding and makes its way unstoppably in the nose. A very powerful acting dram. The sweetness carries dark fruit flavors of black currants, elderberries and very ripe blackberries in itself. Including a carpet of earthy-vegetable notes. All remarkably herbal with associations of laurel leaves and cloves. By no means dominant or even intrusive but with a little patience and exercise noticeably.

    Oily consistency, so the first impression. Very nice jam-like sweetness on the tip of the tongue, just before the momentum, or should I say the heat of the malts, reminds us that it is almost 63% alcoholic. At the risk of repeating myself: Mighty! Certainly a few drops of water will not hurt, but on the other hand they are not absolutely necessary, which in turn speaks for the quality and the well-known taste of the PC spirit. The elements from the nose are also flavorful. Components such as smoke, alcohol, fruit, sweetness and a variety of herbs (oak) blend harmoniously into one another, resulting in a coherent and powerful overall picture. Even fine licorice notes (licorice) I mean in the background perceive. Remarkable flavor complexity for a ten-year malt. The Brunello barrel has really done an impressive job.

    Finish / Conclusion
    Long, sweet, slightly vinous phenolic finish. 'Dark, strongly sweetened forest berry jam from the charcoal grill' shoots through my head as spontaneously as it does nonsensically. But it is quite good. Towards the end, a decidedly pleasant, oily film remains in the mouth, which also includes the lips.
