  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very nice PC from the Bourbon barrel. The next time he might be undiluted, but for the moment he liked me better with a bit of water, especially in his nose.
    • Nose
      Grapefruit juice and smoked trout - I think I've never had this combo in the glass before.
      62.7% is an announcement, and much more than the aforementioned flavor I do not get pulled out, so half a teaspoon of water on the 3cl Dram.
      Now he makes clear, peat smoke comes to light, as well as other citrus fruits such as lemons and tangerines. Overall, it looks very fresh and refreshing. Sea salt, fresh seaweed, sea water with a light oil film (well, is not exactly fresh, but hey). Pepper and nutmeg, also rape honey and squeaky sweet quince jelly.
    • Taste
      Very pleasant start, almost soft, because you could almost thicken the water diluted with whisky again a bit. Creamy mouthfeel, toffee, milk chocolate, coffee beans. Mild smoke, some wood. Roasted lemon slices, seaweed, chain fat, grilled cod.
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish, becomes increasingly sweeter and leaves the maritime and smoky notes behind. Lime slices, oranges, and then again the smoke of a cold peat fire.

    It has everything you would expect from a Port Charlotte in a good bourbon barrel.

    Despite the high alcohol content, good drinkable!
    Nice creaminess and a great sweetness!

    Very good...but....missing the dirt and the sour touch. This one goes more to the honey tones. But never the less, for these days, a recommendation.

  4. Querky did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Nice typo on the label: „Port Charlotte Isaly Scotland“! Gonna get myself a bottle...

  7. Rom scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Well camphorated nose, menthol, tiger balm and a big peat oriented on the wood fire.
    The attack is mentholated, with cloves, eucalyptus, then the peat spreads. The texture is very pleasant, thick and the whole is very warm even if the alcohol is very well integrated.
    Very long, peaty (hospital bandage) and peppery finish.
    A very good Port Charlotte, without the farmer side of PC releases but with a very assertive menthol.

    To be honest, I can't imagine, that you could have a better 10 y old PC in a bourbon cask. Wonderful malt, creamy, even if you don't add water (check the abv!). But it swimms well, become more creamy with some grapefruit drops and vanilla. Nearly perfect 10 years old malt. Buy a bottle!

  10. grinface scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Grapefruit juice spilled over a metal jar with pencils. Also quite some coal dust and peaty lime. Not bad at all. I wouldn’t have guessed the high strength.
