  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Yes, after Palaemona everything looks very modest, the influence of the barrel is not felt at all, only the base and in comparison with the same Palemonium losing. Although, if you discard all the comparisons of the Molt is very good, harmonious, bright, strong, again curbed and directed in the right direction, but Palemony can not be thrown out of your head ..
    • Nose
      Closed, soft, smoke-peaty, resin notes, burning spruce firewood, coniferous brooms in a bath, new leather products.
    • Taste
      Smoky-peat, astringent, explosive wave of orange and lemon zest, peppery wave, cream, chocolate notes, spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Oak bitterness on sweet and sour background, orange peels, light creamy tones, lemon in tea.

    Well made PC, the cask influence is less active than in the same aged Palaemon. Still quite intense whisky. After tasting for a second time I added an extra point (from 89 to 90) for the long finish and aftertaste that stays with you for a long time after sipping this whisky.

    Wow, a great and complex Port Charlotte. The combination of Weinfassreifung and strong smoky distillate suits me perfectly here.

      For the high alcohol strength initially surprisingly restrained and somewhat closed. Then the typical aromatic smoke of Port Charlotte appears first, but then it is immediately overwhelmed by a wonderful fruity sweet on a broad front. Sweet cherries and grapes, even some strawberry meet salty smoke. Simply gorgeous this elegant nose.

      It becomes fresher with water, shows some menthol and ashes.

      Without water, as expected, a lot of power due to the high alcohol content. It first rolls a big wave of peat smoke through the mouth. On the tongue, this beats violently and even slightly peppery. Behind it shows the sweetness, but can not prevail, unlike the nose. Instead, rather dry and slightly herbier notes on the palate, reminiscent of dark chocolate.

      Long and warm. Dark chocolate with elegant oak notes. The smoke stops without pushing to the foreground.

  9. Hemdl scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Despite the young age, for me a very strong malt, which can be enjoyed both with, and without adding water. Extremely strong and wild with no water, it is fruity, sweeter with a little water.
    • Nose
      Strong, dark smoke. Salty sea air. In addition, light red wine aromas, which become increasingly fruity with increasing time. The high alcohol content makes itself felt only by a pleasant coolness in the nose, but does not bother.
    • Taste
      Extremely strong start, it tingles on the tongue. Immediately, the smoke pushes forward. After that, oranges peel out. Very dry in the mouth, with a clear salt note.
      Some water takes the Malt his fiery start. The dark wine notes are clearer.
    • Finish
      Ash, burnt wood, smoke. This blend occupies the tongue and ensures a long lasting flavor. Strong, warming finish. Madness!
