  2. lapinbilly did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A little too much alcohol in this one!
    • Nose
      A very Islay nose, peat, lemon, iodine, not too close to the nose because it piquote! The addition of water is strongly recommended, Oloroso aging is not obvious.
    • Taste
      On the palate alcohol is very present, peat is medicinal and gives way to smoked ham, then peat comes back softer on sherry.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, on peat, salt, and lemon.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    The madness in bottles as was said here, brilliant coastal paint
    • Nose
      Soft peat, right by the sea, algae, berries, raisins, lemon, salty peanuts behind
    • Taste
      First sweetness, apricots & cherries, then green pepper, algae, smoke, salt, fried fish, honey, oak, citrus, orange, grapefruit
    • Finish
      Long, the peat & the sea, but also Sherrynoten remain

    Port Charlotte PC 11, 59.5% alc. original bottling Port Charlotte PC 11, 59.5% alc. original bottling
    Region: Islay, Scotland

    Nose: In the first impression sea air and peat smoke, peat fire on pebble beach, flotsam and algae. It is followed by more fruity aromas, including raisins and peaches, limes and oranges. Somehow I find in addition to cinnamon and salted peanuts.

    Palate: Fruity and smoky. Despite the high alcohol content very mild. Apricots, sultanas and peaches, then on the other side pepper, cinnamon and sea salt, smoked eel and horseradish.

    Finish: Long and very smoky, but also wonderfully harmonious. With tobacco, mild cocoa and raisins.

    Conclusion: complex and exciting!

    87/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 190 €)
    Thank you Peat Head for the rehearsal!

  8. spigray scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    n:  heavy smoke with tar and soot. right behind that thetere is a citric fruitiness
         of lemons and mandarins, lemontarte with vanilla, olives, brine, violets
         aniseed, liquorice and justa hint of manure.
    t:  very strong of course with oily mouthfeel. really a lot of medicinal smoke,
        very much the nose I´d say, nicely sweet behind the smoke-curtain.
    f:  long, very much on liquorice.
    comments: good whisky of course but way too expensive for what it is.

    The madness in bottles! (93/100)
    • Nose
      Clear, strong smoke paired with notes of vanilla, caramel. Sweet but fresh in the background. Very complex ... The sorting of the aromas is difficult
    • Taste
      puhhh ... indescribable! Spoils and surprises the palate ... difficult to put into words
    • Finish
      medium and warm, sticks to the palate
