Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte 2003 IS&m

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.94 points

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A fantastic PC with not much sherry influence. Easy to be mistaken for bourbon wood. Has all I like about PCs, straight forward and quite brute.

      Boom says the dram and hits me in the nose almost with a bourbon wood like maturation that I really treasure with those PCs. But this one is a sherry refill, rather from a fino than anything darker.
      It has a dunnage nose, wet hessian bung cloth, malty sweetness and a slight citrussy note - yeah, think Ardbeg here in good ol' times.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The hessian bung cloth comes through, with an apple and two slices of lemon, watering the sides of the tongue as the peat and smoke batter the rest of the mouth. Actually, quite a pleasant assault.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Quite long and warming. Replicates all of the above with a pronounciation on damp hessian cloth.

  2. Roland7 scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    A good balance between fruit and chemical notes. On the one hand, lime honey, lemon, black currant, green apple, green tea, kiwi (!), Smoke, medicine (bandage), burnt rubber, gasoline and smoked fish on the other. Slightly beats alcohol.
