    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.

    A very good PC. Hard to get in the Netherlands. So thanks to Addy for letting taste us this whisky in the FOTB.
    • Nose
      Espresso coffee. Raisins. Smoke nicely intermingled with notes of sherry. Farmy notes. Tobacco and leather. Cigar-boxes. Some rubber.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Long. Spices of pepper and clove. Pine. Antiseptic. Some mint.
