    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather long with some ashes and again the dried bananas. In addition also coffee flavors and this strong oak.
