- Port Charlotte 10 yo 2003/2013 (63.1%, Scoma, sherry hogshead, cask #617, 290 bottles)
Yes a total monster, most probably. Colour: office coffee. Nose: Very
sulphury, but I think there’s ‘good’ sulphur (matches, guns) and ‘bad’
sulphur (ard-boiled eggs, cooked cabbage). It’s the former situation
that’s occurring here, with also notes of coal dust (or, as I sometimes
say, brake pads after the Nordschleife), used fireworks, charcoal,
ashtray, bitter chocolate, liquorice… This is quite spectacular, but
sometimes they don’t swim well when the sherry’s ‘like that’. Let’s
figure out… With water: magic. Sake, cigars, soy sauce, umami… It gets
very ‘Japanese’. Mouth (neat): gives you some kind of wafer when
unreduced! Bang! I get some heavy smoky liquorice, but other than that,
it tends to numb your palate, so, quick… With water: wonderful
sherry/peat combo. Leather, tobacco, strawberry jam, cassis bud tea,
marmalade… Perfect. Finish: very long, with a bitter/leathery side that
works to perfection here, and a sweeter Campari-like aftertaste.
Comments: big, fat, and excellent. SGP:567 - 90 points.
- What a bomb! Balanced and complex, but not a bit tender. I did not try it with water at all, I enjoyed the pure performance too much.
very dark Sherrynoten, hard to believe that he is still so young. Lots of leather, coffee, a little cowshed, stored raisins, almost dry, but still with a slight undertone. The alcohol bizzelt for 63% rather low. After some time sweeter notes come. Dried bananas like fresh from the pack and Pocket Coffee by Ferrero. The smoke is slightly phenolic and balances with the barrel. Something Bacon also resonates. Very balanced nose.
The 63% he can not deny, while he is still pure, but already has a slight fire water effect. There is also a heavy, dark sweetness and a lot of oak. Dirty, rough, prunes, and a pinch of pepper, a very nice steam.
The finish is rather long with some ashes and again the dried bananas. In addition also coffee flavors and this strong oak.
- Really Good Stuff.
I love it thick sherry, smoke ,sweetness and tutti frutti.
- A very good PC. Hard to get in the Netherlands. So thanks to Addy for letting taste us this whisky in the FOTB.
Espresso coffee. Raisins. Smoke nicely intermingled with notes of sherry. Farmy notes. Tobacco and leather. Cigar-boxes. Some rubber.
Very peaty. Brimstone. Tar and diesel oil. But also some plums and prunes at the background. Lots of tanninnes as well. Quite complex in my view.
Long. Spices of pepper and clove. Pine. Antiseptic. Some mint.
- Typical PC Smoke Note. Intensive with a lot of sherry influence. A steam hammer wrapped in some sweetness. Priceperformance - Top!
- On the Scoma site: Port Charlotte made a mistake while printing the label. This single malt did not mature in the bourbon barrel - as stated - but in a sherry hogshead, which is clearly visible in the dark color, which should be much lighter when ripening to ex-bourbon cask.
- wonderfull PC
Label says `Bourboncask` by mistake, its definitely a Sherry
Great expression Danilo!!!
