  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Another good Port Charlotte. As for me, it is better in the mouth than in the aroma. Lots of sweets, smoke, wet and moist earthy notes, but also vanilla, dark chocolate and delicate redcurrant make this drink expressive.

  4. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma is an intense burst of sweetness that hugs the peaty smoky earthy notes that develops into a “smoked custard” profile as it opens; Palate is warm and fruity as well with an even heavier smoke and saline character; Finish is a muted version of the palate that slowly fades.

    This is some tasty whisky.
