      Unmistakably a heavy smoker. Sweet clouds of ash rise up my nose. The alcohol is strong and present, but I know it from other PCs much worse. Golden yellow in color and its viscosity makes it look amazingly oily ...
      Once you've smelled your way through the heavy clouds of ash, sweet grapes and eucalyptus remain. Quite appealing ...

      After half an hour I treat myself to a drop of Port Charlotte, but no, it takes more time in the glass.
      I'll try again after an hour.

      -> It looks nice and thick and oily in the mouth, the first impression fits!
      The sweet malt and peat come through immediately. Fire and ash alternate with the sweetness of the malt several times. Then the alcohol pushes through with its sharpness. Fire, ashes and sweet grapes ...
      Swallowed ...
      Now the PC becomes slightly bitter on the tongue and the full salivation begins. Roasted almonds that have been roasted a little too much are visualized in my mind's eye.
      ... and again oily thick sweetness follows.

      After the sweetness of the grape, the pc becomes increasingly dry. A bit biting and astringent, it also has a slightly bitter effect.

    It is of an oily viscosity and its bouquet is of a relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of marine peat smoke, malty sweetness and honey. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. The alcohol is relatively well integrated and it's quite heavy in body.
