    I find this a rather demanding peater, with a well integrated nose and a more difficult pallate. Water is obligatory for my papalte to make it comfortable. A good example of an independently bottle Port Charlotte that shows the raw character of the spirit.

      Mild smoke combined with sweetness and roasted herbs (rosemary, chive). Ammonium salt, sweet cigars and hints of vinegar. The peat is rather balanced and comfortable, but also has a sharp edge. Followed by citrus, fresh orange juice and a touch of grapefruit. Becomes farmier over time. Also more fruit appears. A drop of water brings out more complex notes like coals, cigarette ashes, lemon and lime scrapes, chalk and the inside of a henhouse. The integration is next to perfect. Beautiful citrus notes, minerals, and a few herbal notes.

      Intense beginning with lots of salmiak, herbal peat and oranges. Some grapefruit juice, smoked walnuts and herbs. Simple and very effective. A little farm-y, some vanilla. It is getting a little bit dirty, which makes it also more interesting. It is better with a little bit of water, which brings out more balance and details on the palate. Really nice integrated smoked citrus fruits (a whole basket of oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit, maybe even some lychees).

    Typical PC: grilled vegetables, baby sick, wood stove fire and charcoal. A bit peppery and herbal as well!
