Port Charlotte 8 yo 2001 (66.0%, Port Sgioba, Private Cask, Sherry Hogshead, Cask 826/2001, 2010)

Nose: Your typical peaty sherry. Smoke, grilled meat, spices, caramel. Huge concentration. Some antiseptic and iodine too. Fantastic.

Mouth: So punchy. Your peaty sherry again. Liquorish. Spices.

Finish : Loooong, warm.

With water : No change on the nose. The mouth is more meaty.

A fantastic peaty sherry monster highly drinkable despite the ABV.

One of my favorite Port Charlotte.

Farbe: Amon­til­lado Sherry
Nase: Der Start beginnt mit ste­chen­dem Alko­hol, viel Salz und Chi­li­schärfe. Dann folgt Orange, tor­fi­ger Rauch, Leder und viel Mine­ra­li­tät (Kies, Steine, Quarz und Sand­strand), aber auch Tabak­blät­ter, Zedern­holz und ein­ge­legte rote Früchte. Nach eini­ger Zeit ver­fliegt die ste­chende Schärfe etwas, und die Nase wird noch aus­ge­wo­ge­ner. Zarte „farmy notes“ ent­wi­ckeln sich im Glas.
Geschmack: Wuch­tig, cre­mig und sehr gehalt­voll. Eine mäch­tige rauch­ge­la­dene Würze mit allem, was dazu gehört, steht auf der Zunge. Holz, Nüsse, Sherry, Früchte, Leder, Torf, Grape­fruit und Minze. Die 66% las­sen den Aro­men viel Spiel­raum!
Finish: Sehr lang – anfangs auf glei­cher Basis wie der Geschmack, dann mit zuneh­men­den Holz­ein­fluss und leicht abneh­men­dem Sherry. Scho­ko­lade, rau­chi­ger Torf und ein ele­gan­ter Frucht­ton blei­ben zurück.
Bemer­kung: Die Nase star­tete zuerst etwas schwä­cher (punk­te­tech­nisch), erreicht aber spä­ter den­noch 93 Punkte!
93 Punkte (Nase: 93 / Geschmack: 93 / Finish: 92)

Superb! I loved this whisky when I first tasted it at the Islay Festival this year, so much so that I bought a bottle. What was even better was it was still great when I was back home and sober.
A perfect balance of peat and sherry.
A must have bottle for peat freaks.

Very impressed you got one of these ! Exceptional whisky no doubts, a gentle long peated dram with very broad fruity aromas ... I highly recommend if have the chance to get your hand on one of these ... only 286 bottles from this single cask. If interested I have some links let me know,

I tasted this wonderful whisky at this year's Feis Ile. The best way to sum it up is that it is like a peaty Mortlach. raspberry
