  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    more subtle, more worked, the wood feels more, always wet by a barrel of algae reclaiming greasy peat.
    • Nose
      more character, roundness,
      peat, glue, dry wood, some dried flowers, lemon and a slight vanilla return, it's still nice. spices are more on white pepper.

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A tad too aggressive to my liking. Diluting it with water helps a bit, but not much.
    • Nose
      Fairly coastal, I'd say. A proper amount of peat and brine, accompanied by vanilla, ripe banana and pineapple. There's some cured meat here as well. Finally a whisper of lemon zest.
    • Taste
      Aggressive! Big, big whisky. Lots of peat and tar, and lots of heat (chili peppers). It is slightly farmy, but mostly coastal. A touch of iodine, some salt as well. Whispers of citrus fruit.
    • Finish
      The peat and the spices linger for a long time, before sweeter fruits take over.

    Blindly tasted with André during ProefOlympics 2017 May 6, 2017
    • Nose
      Smoke, salty, with water he does not get much better. We think Ardbeg

  4. rb854 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Tasted it blind during PO2017 (june 2017)
    • Nose
      Vanilla, peat, iodine, fruits, citrus, berries, cocos, malt and some leather. The longer it stays, the more citric notes appear.
    • Taste
      Sweet and waxy, vanilla, peat, iodine, pear and banana and some coffee/caramel
    • Finish
      Quite oily and peaty, keeps lingering. Some caramel and chocolate.

  8. erikz scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Tasted this blind. Not really my thing this Port Charlotte. I don't like the intrinsic cane sugary sweetness of the dram.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, metallic, a hint of caramel, sharp, acidic (bile).
    • Taste
      Liquorice, salmiak, cane sugar, ashy, peaty, waxy and bbq smoke.
    • Finish
      Sweet like cane sugar, rather restrained, waxy, not too long of a finish.

    Cracking stuff!
    • Nose
      Hello Pete, ehm peat. Soft sweet smoke rising from the glass. Licorice, bayleaf, fat eels being smoked over oak shavings just a few yards over. The alcohol stings the nose a bit though.
    • Taste
      Hello! Oily, leather, chalk of something en a sit load of alcohol. Letting it roll over the tongue and there come the rest of th flavours. Licorice, cloves, leather. Tastes a bit bitter, but there is a sweetness to it. Is het coughdrops or something?
    • Finish
      The bitterness lingers on the tongue and as it passes down the throte the sweetness is there bordering on sickly sweet. And then at the end the tobacco kicks in for real and is there to stay. Old sigars and the chewing tobacco of grand uncle Auke...

    Not my taste of whisky… Not balanced and too vegetal for me; I guessed it was a Laphroaig. Tasted during a blind tasting competition in May/June 2017. 
    • Nose
      Peated, woody, something vegetal (the fumes ascending from dried silage grass after heavy rainfall). It becomes sweeter after airing for a while. Sherry tones coming forward, walnuts. Becomes less vegetal with a drop of water; more eucalyptus.  
    • Taste
      Sharp. Really sharp. Having a cold doesn't really help here… Some sherry tones (blackcurrant, figs), bit of wood, smoke (the licking-an-ashtray-kind-of-smoke), and I get some citrusy tones as well. 
    • Finish
      Prickly at the tip and sides of the tongue, becoming salty. Slowly retreating to the back of the mouth; lingering and lingering.
