  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    peat, lemon, meat scent, smoke already too
    oaky, malty, some salt too and fruit on citrus and candied fruit, a little on mulled wine ... chilled.
    mouth:
    spicy and alcoholic flood on the palate!
    it stings, dirty peat, a little muddy, earth, salty algae, tannin, the bottom of the glass with the debris in it, still salty, it suddenly becomes hyper astringent, more than bitter, that destroys the beauty of the candied fruit on the lemon and the orange and the sweetness of the wine;
    a little wood and dark chocolate to finish
    final:
    Peppery spices, bitterness, fruity and vinified, chocolatey, earthy peaty, rather long but unique sensation.
    difficult to settle, with a strong intensity on pleasant markers and others difficult to tame like this tenacious bitterness.

    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.

    Great young Port Charlotte. 22.5-22.5-22-22

  5. HammerHead scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A bit of a strange PC. A non-fortified wine aging in which after 6 years the nose is not integrated perfecty yet, it's a bit unbalanced. There's a more or less thinned out sweetness floating on top the rest. Still an ok dram though, but lags behind the older sherry or port aged PC's.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A-typical nose for a PC, has difficulties opening up (needs quite some time), but doesn't need much water. Earthy, a cow stable, some burnt and smoked old and wet wood, quite nutty (walnuts, pecans), after 30 minutes liquiroce and anise, some general sweetness, maybe a little honey, but specific fruitiness doesn't really come through.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Well integrated alcohol, the almost 64% doesn't really show. A peppery pinch, a bit damp, 'wet' smoke, some walnuts, sweet fruit syrup, liquorice, charcoal, dusty wood spice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Very long: nutty, sweetish, mildly peppery, lingering black liquorice, charred and scorched wood notes.
