This was a sample courtesy of lincolnimp. This is my second Port Charlotte and certainly won't be my last.

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Old gold
Nose

This has such a gentle nose, sausages fresh from the butcher, some floral notes and a cold winters morning on the beach when the tide is out and there is lots of seaweed. 

Taste

This is very subtle on the palate and goes down a treat , there is some citrus and cream cracker. A well balanced dram, nothing over powering. 

Finish

A nice long pleasant finish, and little doughy, but in a good way. 

Comments

A high quality dram, hit every spot, wonderful.
