Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte 10-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.92 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    (Bottle opened 6-7 months ago)
    NOSE: Medium sweet peat smoke. Sweet, “yellow” (light, grainy) malt notes. Moderate (modest) bourbon notes of vanilla, dried yellow fruits, banana, some tropical fruit notes. Water opens the nose. No significant new element arise from the glass but the sweet notes increase some and it becomes more buttery. (86p)
    TASTE: The arrival is more smokey than the nose, with bonfire ashes and elements of tar. On the mid palate some sweetness, some liquorice, ginger and pepper, again hints of tar. It takes water well but that doesn’t change the whisky much. More wood spice and more barley sweetness come out. (85p)
    FINISH: Sweet and peppery, with a light alcohol nip. With water the exit becomes less sweet, more peppery and, a bit watery (sic), without the alcohol nip. (84p)
    TOTAL SCORE: 85 points.

  4. maltaholic scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Here I smell no smoke, rather sweetish, fruity.

    In the mouth then spicy, very strong.
    Cloves, sloe, juniper.

    Delicious.

  5. Alois scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Likewise a candidate who changes and unfolds with time. No malt that only has smoke excessively. Beautifully balanced with many other flavors.
    • Nose
      Spicy with smoke. Herbs and essential oils ... some candy and subliminal oak. Tobacco.
    • Taste
      Gondola in the mouth, sweetish, powerful and tingling.
    • Finish
      Long and dry, then sweet with some smoke.
