Deep copper
Nose

D'abord, une fumée musclée, iodée, cendrée puis carnée. Puis, vanille et citron confit. Ces deux pendants coexistent de façon très harmonieuse. Un peu vif. 

Avec un peu d'eau, plus salin, mais moins dynamique.

Taste

Attaaaaaque !!! Puis immédiatement très chaleureux, gourmand et fondu. Bien rond (merci le fût)
Avec de l'eau, rond mais vif sur les épices.

Finish

Intense. Plus épicée avec de l'eau.

Comments

A savourer pur ! 

Enthousiasme 4/5 pur 

(3/5 avec de l'eau)

Whisky n° 1333

Serge says:

Star4.5.jpg 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. 09/29/2007 - 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 .

Très tourbé. de la grosse tourbe même. Un peu de réglisse.
Mais petite déception, je pensais monter en gamme après le PC5 mais je le trouve un peu moins...un peu moins tout. Surtout la finale qui est beaucoup moins longue.

Goûté blind. Nez : de la tourbe dans une étable ! Du citron et de l’iode.

La bouche aussi sent l’étable, à la fois huileux et terreux, assez sucré.

Finale très longue dans le même esprit.

Très bon.

Amontillad
Nose
Not as fierce as expected. Icing sugar and candy, and a rich buttercream.  The wine influence has imparted a thick and floral honey scent as well – really very rich. Some medicinal TCP, but faint compared to typical Islay (it’s more like a sherbet tingle than creosote or bonfires). Some soft coastal notes of salt and seashells in there too.
Taste
Madeira’s strong and sweet to start, with a rising peat (and ABV!) burn. Very viscous and luscious mouthfeel. I get notes of mandarin, blood-orange and grapefruit running through the middle, with some more icing sugar and peaty sherbet.
Finish
Some soft smoke comes out as the tingle calms down and savoury notes of liquorice, hazelnut, and rolling tobacco develop into a long finish (five minutes later, I can still taste hazelnuts!).
Comments
Water: It gets a lot peatier (on the nose and the palate) when you add water! I think I prefer it unwatered, with that lovely, thick, creamy mouthfeel.

I challenge any seasoned peat-head not to enjoy this dram!
