Lots of leathery sherrynotes, polished mahogany wood and subtle peatsmoke. A spicy, deep and seductive nose. A smell like taking the stairs down to an old, damp winecellar. Like other Port Charlotte sherry casks released by Donald Hart, this is a very unusual profile for PC. It leans more towards older Ardbegs in style, which I definetly like. Tastes much older then ten years. Great stuff!

Couleur : Ambre

Nez : Peaty sherry qui va clairement lorgner du côté carné de la force. Ca sent la viande fumée, voire la cendre du barbecue au lendemain des agapes, avec quelque chose comme du métal meulé en fond. Des notes plus sucrées donnent un petit côté sauce barbecue à l'ensemble. Pas très ragoûtant raconté comme cela, mais plutôt agréable pour l'amateur de peaty sherry que je suis.

Bouche : Abondamment salée dès l'attaque. Un bol d'eau de mer, l'iode en moins. De la réglisse salée en fait. Ici encore, la tourbe se fait nettement fumée, avec beaucoup de cendres et des notes carnées. La texture est fluide, j'aurais apprécié plus de gras.

Finale : très longue, sur les cendres et la réglisse salée.

Conclusion : un malt qui ne fera probablement pas l'unanimité. Serait intéressant à déguster lors d'une session de groupe, je suis persuadé qu'il trouverait autant d'amateurs que de détracteurs. De mon côté j'aime beaucoup. A noter que les notes métalliques du nez ont ravivé le vieux souvenir du PC5 dont je possédais une bouteille il y a quelques années. Je n'avais pas retrouvé ces notes depuis.

Like a younger, less complex Glendronach single cask + standard peat.

I had the pleasure to taste a sample while still waiting for my bottles from the WB shop. As this was in the early afternoon (unusual time for me to taste a dram!) I will definitely need to re-do this, but at a first impression this is a well-rounded PC once again, tastes older than 10 Years, not a peat monster but well rounded cask influence, peat, sweetness.
