Color
Yellow gold
Nose

kräftiger phenolischer Rauch in Konkorrenz mit ätherischer Frische. Birne, Heu … Nach ein paar Minuten süßer werdend

Taste

Süßer Rauch mit leichter Schärfe und Noten von Vanille, Honig und Birne

Finish

Lang und wärmend, am Ende leicht bitter

Comments

Hat auf mich nicht mehr die überwältigende Wirkung wie beim ersten Probieren vor ein paar Jahren. Ist aber immer noch ein Top Whisky, kräftig und komplex, ohne Fehl und Tadel

Végétal, la tourbe est bien verte. Iodé, on sent sa relative jeunesse.
Très belle texture bien épaisse, de manière surprenante la bouche est sucrée avec un tout petit peu de caramel. Le côté fermier typique est bien présent, clou de girofle, agréable.
Finale longue et puissante, qui reste assez sucrée.

Color: Golden Strawpc7james

Nose: Starting on the signature Laddie nose. PC or not PC, this is Laddi-Land. The well known “Condensed Milk” kind of fruity sweetness. Then after a second we dive deeper into Peat-Land:Whoa! We’re in Islay that’s for sure. Amazing mingling of Peat Bogs, Smoke, Ashes, peat fires, and some camp fire (have you ever been to the boy scouts? , this kind of fire, yeah!) and also some rubber tires. I call this Sweet and sour.. Wonderful nose. One cannot ask for more.

Palate: The palate is continuing what the nose had promised. The Condensed milk is gone, but is replaced by sweet smoke, Burnt sugar. The Peat is omnipotent here, and is very much ashy. Many similar notes to the 3D3 I’ve previously reviewed, but with more intensity and power (due to the much higher ABV). The ashes are mingling wonderfully with the sweet smoke, Burnt sugar, and also some rubber tires. In 3 words: Sweet, smoky and spicy.

Finish: Very long and luxuries finish : Peat, Smoke, Burnt sugar (bitterness) , Dark chocolate and Spice (Chilly) are playing for endless minutes on your entire palate. I dig this.

Conclusion:

This is not a dram for those who do not appreciate peat, and very strong and mascular malts. For a peat head like me, this is peat heaven, very comforting and the extra ABV (61%!) is noticeable and gives that extra punch. I do like it more than the 3D3 (but not a whole lot more) . I am very keen on trying the other PC releases. Port Charlotte distillery is still not operating, but PC is live an kicking. If you enjoy “in your face” peated malts, this is one to have handy on your whisky Shelf.
