  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Buttery peat, some flowery elements, farm aromas, delicate saltiness, tidal pools, wet ropes and citrus tones. Is becoming more and more "farmiger", freshly shorn wool, leather, smoked fish, cider apples, straw, flax, linseed oil and wet wood. Beautifully put together.
    • Taste
      Medium heavy with peat smoke, salty sea breeze, citrus zests, medical Floralität and becomes more and more complex. Sparkling seasoning, juniper, ash.
    • Finish
      Long with fruity notes, herbs and freshly plowed earth.

  2. spigray scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    a very nice, very straight dram. does not need any further maturation and comes at perfect strength.
    89/100
    • Nose
      recognizable port charlotte. young and medium peaty, very fresh and appealing with salty and some lactic-sour notes. Quite fruity on melon and lemon. Also some mineral notes. quite focussed but far from narrow. I find this a lovely nose.
    • Taste
      quite peaty, medium fruity more on citrus now. salty crackers, brine.
      full bodied and very straight.
    • Finish
      long, slightly dry, salty, peaty.

    • Nose

      Ash combined with floral and citrus fruits. No smell explosion, but the smokiness takes the upper hand.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Powerful taste, a lot of smokiness, combination with citrus, but also iodine and salt. Campfire on the beach with smoked fish?
    • Finish
      88 88
      Everything you can expect from an older Port Charlotte (not in age of content). Long finish, a bit nasty, but especially a lot of peat and smoke. One from the pre-commercial time of Bruichladdich

    [January, 2011]  I had this dram during a Jim McEwan tasting at Godesburg.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  Unfortunately my detailed notes were lost.

  7. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Tasty, but anything but perfect, a bit too peaty and just too young.
    • Nose
      Cold smoke, vanilla, tea, pepper, peat
    • Taste
      First peat, sweet smoke, then some apples, nuts, then clear maritime salt notes, but also the pepper from the nose
    • Finish
      Medium long, some salt and pepper still, quite clear, some apple here
