Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte 2008 MBl

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.57 points

  1. chrizthewiz scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Tarry ropes, maritime and phenolic peatsmoke, atlantic seabreeze and juicy vanilla notes from the american oak. This is a mighty fresh bourbon cask! (Long time no see) Leatherboots, burnt driftwood, fishnets, brine, oysters, mustard, a hint of menthol, cowstable, freshly cut grass. More floral with time.

    Mouth: Arrival on salty peatsmoke and loads of sweet vanilla. Fish oil, kippers, menthol cigarettes, drops of limoncello, riesling, camphor, thyme, liquorice. Long, peaty finish on tar, cough syrup and oak.

    Comments: Great cask selection again by meadowside blending. It’s been a while since I came across a first fill (?) bourbon cask in this quality. The price is steep but justified. Reminds me of the great Ardbeg 1998 Renessaince.
