      Not a rough and tumble kind of Port Charlotte. Quite round and balanced. Very maritime, salty, and lots of herring. Oats and porridge. Hints of pears, vanilla, and mint. Port Charlotte is coming of age? I can't wait until PC start is 25yo. Most likely will be better than most 25yo Port Ellens out there to be honest. The distillate is just pure quality.

      A very controlled and precise Port Charlotte. Delicious smoke. Vanilla and white fruits like white peaches and Korean pears. Complex and balanced. Perfect strength. Love it.

      Best Port Charlotte I've had. Very balanced, very precise, and also very elegant (for a PC).

    A very nice and exciting bottling. PC au naturell and unvarnished, no Fassgefrickel, how beautiful. That's really fun.

    Beautifully matured, yet powerful and with twists and turns in the flavors. No water, that makes him sharper.

      Clearly maritime, sea breeze, marzipan, mussels, sardines, lemons, some tar. Amazingly elegant. A tick of undergrowth in the background.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sweet, full, rich smoke, iodine, bandages, lemons and peach.
      Some white pepper. Enormously tasty at high intensity, has fire, but the alcohol is quite well integrated. Then there is also some apricot jam. Tight and concentrated
    • Finish
      89 89
      Dry, salty, richly smoky, intense. Then again Pfrisich, apricots and lemons. Ends on vanilla notes.

    Glass: Snifter Whisky Dram
    Aroma: straight away the aroma is beautiful, Isla as it is - smoke from the fire, smoked fish, spices, fruits, salty sea pebbles ... Wonderful! Over time, the fruit / honey base appears ...
    Taste: sweet (fruit and honey), salty, peppered, smoked ... It's funny, but it is ... Multilayer taste and absolutely edible!
    Finish: long, warm and warming, fruit sweetness, salt and pepper ...
    Today I’m tired and don’t want to look for synonyms to describe this malt, I just enjoy the wonderful taste ... Martin definitely knows some secret ...

    Delicious. Overall, that's a lot of lemon and smoke and peat. In general, it is determined very strongly by the distillate. So despite the great length, the finish seemed a little too one-dimensional the first time. If you give him time, it looks different. We had that before. We are often used to cask finishes at PC. You have to hide that memory in your mind. In addition you can easily drink this one continuously. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/05/07/2223/
