Whisky Reviews for Port Charlotte 2005 AD

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.80 points

  1. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Young but very well balanced. I am truly impressed! Tasted it blind, thought it would be a Laphroaig or Smögen whisky on Sauternes cask for some reason. Thanks to Pär Berglöf for the sample. 

    (Rating intervall 85-88).
    • Nose
      Heavy peat smoke, mixed spices and maple syrup makes the first impression. It is followed by spear mint, lemon and almonds (with the almonds really coming through in the empty glass). Hints of toffee when after addition of water.
    • Taste
      Steady arrival with sweet licorice and syrup. The peat smoke grows in the development, with tar (almost Ardbeg like), pepper, lemon juice and wood spice. Smoked sweet licorice, fire wood, and mineral ashes.
    • Finish
      The finish is all about peat smoke, citrus, bitter citrus, hint of pepper, smoked paprika and chipotle. A caramelized sweetness are very well in balance during the entire finish, and that is a long one.
