    Heavy sweet peat, slight sherry sweetness. Port Charlotte is in my opinion much peatier than the South Coast Islays

    • Nose
      First, a lot of aromatic smoke. It changes beautifully between the campfire notes and the Maritime-Phenolic. Behind it comes the Laddie freshness with citrus and a few herbs. Could actually have a bit of mint. And last but not least, the sherry struggles forward with a few fruits, perhaps orange most likely.
      Great complexity!
    • Taste
      First of all, delicious smoke. Bacon, campfire but then again phenolic. Very aromatic. And then intensely sweet and at the same time pleasantly spicy on the tongue. The sherry gets through much faster than in the nose.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky with a bit of dark chocolate.

    Tasting Notes:


  5. EarlMobile scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    It tastes more like ash for me than smoke. And in addition there is a certain amount of sulfur. You have to like it. I like it, but rather than delicious not so deep whisky.

  6. Robert Parker scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Tasty Everyday Malt I would say
    • Nose
      beautiful smoke, floral, citrus, bright fruits
    • Taste
      sweet, again light citrus fruits, alcohol beautifully integrated, smoke encloses the aromas, a little bonfires, certain saltiness is undeniable, pear, green apple
    • Finish
      Medium, citrus and slight bitterness remains on the throat

    Serge V says:

    Port Charlotte 10 yo (46%, OB, 2012)
    The first ‘regular’ 10 yo Port Charlotte. If the quality’s similar to
    that of the Laddie Ten, well, we’re happy. Colour: gold. Nose: ah well,
    this is massively both tarry and medicinal. It’s interesting because
    most PCs we could try so far, especially from indies, came from very
    active wood while this seems to be more ‘natural’. So we’re between
    fresh tarmac, mercurochrome and encaustic, which is a profile unlike any
    other (esp. none from the island’s south shore). Very singular and
    probably very polarising. Fresh barley and ‘a kiln’.  Mouth: starts a
    little bizarrely, hesitating between lemons, tar/liquorice and brine,
    all those flavours appearing intermittently. Maybe that’s what we could
    call an alternative whisky? ;-) Goes on with marzipan and some kind of
    sweet and sour notes. Lemon-sprinkled kippers and oysters. Finish: long,
    ashy, tarry. A very sooty/ashy aftertaste. Comments: as expected, it’s
    very good whisky but I must say I like most other PCs better – and god
    knows I’m a sucker for Port Charlotte. I’m pretty sure this 10 will
    improve mucho mucho when they’ll start adding newer vintages to the
    vatting. SGP:257 - 82 points.
