  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting:
    The initially sweet and fruity smoker changes over time into a malt dominated by smoke and burned wood. Woodiness and pepper heat the palate and the tongue, the mouthfeel becomes noticeably creamier and tart. These smoky, wood-flavored aromas are familiar. A short time ago I received a Kilchoman sample with the same character, though I would rather tap on a port reef or a wine finish on this sample. Maximum 10 years with about 48-52% alcohol content.

    23/22/22/22 (89P)
    • Nose
      Dark straw with a velvety reddish glow shines in the glass. Mild and fruity smoke and peat rise during the first nosing, creamy caramel and velvety apricots blend together. A touch of vanilla dissolves from burnt wood tones, slightly fruity smoke mixes with greasy flavors. Sweet and creamy, the harmoniously harmonious aromas through the nose, slightly sour fruit flavors rise. In the fingers rubbed peppermint leaves give the sweet and smoky nose a fresh note, light maritime and mineral aromas come to bear.
    • Taste
      At the first sip, the delicate smoky nose unfolds its full aroma and powerfully hits the palate. Sweet berries and a hint of caramelized sugar are quickly replaced by a hint of pepper. Woody sharpness envelops the tongue and heats the palate, it tingles and crackles on the tip of the tongue. Gunpowder and a subtle chili-catch re-fire the keen root note. Spicy and slightly tart wood elements emerge, a hint of ash and burned wood come out. Walnuts rest on the tongue, with a cozy warmth and aromas of burned wood, the taste is transformed into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Lightly burned wooden elements are still resting on the tongue, fly ash covers the ground pepper sticking to the tongue, citrus fruits follow. Fresh mint dissolves from the blend of citrus fruits and burnt wood, a cold smoky note sticks to the palate. Creamy and oily, walnuts and smoked chips swim under the tongue, yellow fruits and red berries rise up.

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    To savor pure! Enthusiasm 4/5 pure (3/5 with water) Whisky n ° 1333
    • Nose
      First, a muscular smoke, iodine, ashy and then meaty. Then, vanilla and candied lemon. These two pendants coexist in a very harmonious way. A little lively. With a little water, more saline, but less dynamic.
    • Taste
      Attaaaaaque !!! Then immediately very warm, greedy and melted. Well round (thank you the drum)
      With water, round but lively on spices.
    • Finish
      Intense. More spicy with water.

  4. Whisky_Philippe scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    The whisky is smokier with water. Stay for a long time Very nice whisky. I like the best of all PCXX.
    • Nose
      Sweet, honey, butter Fruity (citrus, apricots) Slightly maritime, salt smoke
    • Taste
      At the beginning the Madeira is very present Sweet to the beginning, smoke is then getting stronger But also citrus notes (oranges, mandarin) Not very maritime anymore
    • Finish
      Remains long lasting Smoke (peat fire), pepper, fruity, salt, nutty aftertaste

  6. toklian did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge says:


    Here’s the brand new Port
    Charlotte! We’ll also have
    a glass of the PC5 at hand so that
    we can compare both. Colour: straw
    (the PC5 is rather pale gold, that
    is to say darker). Nose: it’s
    obviously the same make, except
    that the PC6 is straighter at first
    nosing, more directly on smoke and
    less on pears and kirsch.


    But
    then I detect something fruitier (apricots,
    very ripe melons) and a rather distinct
    vinosity, but I wouldn’t say
    this is ‘winey’. Whiffs
    of peonies, clean wine barrel, then
    warm butter and mashed potatoes, hot
    cake... More towards pastries than
    the PC5, with maybe a little less
    smoke. Gets more demonstrative with
    time, more ‘raw’ (wool,
    ‘clean’ manure, porridge,
    new leather, soaked grain). Other
    than that it’s close to the
    PC5, with just these added faint winey
    hints that may (or may not, I have
    no info at hand) come from time spent
    in good wine casks. But it certainly
    doesn’t smell like wine-finished
    whisky as such. With water: now it
    got much nicer than the PC5. Indeed,
    it’s straighter, all on peat
    and whiffs of a farmyard in a hot
    summer day, and without a single winey
    notes left. The hints of mint and
    curry that we got in the PC5 disappeared
    as well. Very, very ‘Islay’,
    and an excellent swimmer it seems.
    Mouth (neat): again, starts cleaner
    and better balanced than the PC5 as
    well as rather more peppery and spicy
    and, again, less kirschy. But it does
    need water... So, with water: still
    powerful and, again, cleaner than
    the PC5 (I’m not meaning the
    latter was dirty of course). More
    fresh fruits (butter pears) and a
    perfect peatiness, with also notes
    of ginger tonic and gentian spirit.
    Very, very good, maybe marginally
    closer to the Islays from the south
    shore than the PC5, that is. And indeed,
    no winey notes on the palate. Finish:
    long, peaty, fruity, very clean, with
    notes of plum spirit. Rating? I’d
    say two points above the PC5, which
    means 88 points.

    - Added comments – I just learned
    that this PC6 was partly matured in
    Madeira casks. Well, all I can say
    is that it worked well and that it
    was only relatively obvious to me
    on the nose that some 'not too vinous'
    wine was involved ihere. At least
    we’ve got the answer now .

  8. stf92 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very peaty. of the big peat itself. A little licorice.
    But little disappointment, I thought upscale after the PC5 but I find it a little less ... a little less everything. Especially the final which is much shorter.

  9. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Tasted blind. Nose: peat in a barn! Lemon and iodine. The mouth also smells of cowshed, both oily and earthy, quite sweet. Final very long in the same spirit. Very good.
