Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte PC11
36 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.55 points
- A little too much alcohol in this one!
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.
On the palate alcohol is very present, peat is medicinal and gives way to smoked ham, then peat comes back softer on sherry.
The finish is long, on peat, salt, and lemon.

- The madness in bottles as was said here, brilliant coastal paint
Soft peat, right by the sea, algae, berries, raisins, lemon, salty peanuts behind
First sweetness, apricots & cherries, then green pepper, algae, smoke, salt, fried fish, honey, oak, citrus, orange, grapefruit
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!

Thank you Peat Head for the rehearsal!

- 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)
Clear, strong smoke paired with notes of vanilla, caramel. Sweet but fresh in the background. Very complex ... The sorting of the aromas is difficult
puhhh ... indescribable! Spoils and surprises the palate ... difficult to put into words
medium and warm, sticks to the palate
