  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The fact that the barley is grown on Islay was lost on my taste buds, but the dram is very drinkable and I would recommend it.

  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I need to watch old videos of Oz Clarke to learn better descriptors - meanwhile I'll comfort myself knowing this is a decent dram.
    • Nose
      A faint aroma of peat - inviting rather than overpowering.
    • Taste
      Well balanced - warm mouth feel with a very pleasant taste.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth - reminds me of Lapsang tea.

    • Nose
      Chimney smoke, lemons. Smoked trout. Wet wall paint, artificial leather.
    • Taste
      Clear. Light honey sweetness, then spicy and smoky. Some brown sugar and ashes.

    Serge says: A very brand new bottling of Port Charlotte. Colour: white wine. Nose:
    writing that this noses like ‘a distillery on Islay’ would be an
    euphemism. In fact, it’s exactly like smelling a handful of kilned
    malted barley. And far behind that, in the distance, touches of
    wholegrain bread, ashes, coal smoke and a drop of clairin. You know,
    that Haitian white rum. A little petrol, perhaps. With water: straight,
    clean zesty, smoky, uncomplicated, to the point. And always this lovely
    bready side. Mouth (neat): speaking of clairin, there are indeed notes
    of big fat white rum in this, then more kippers, almonds, ashes and
    liquorice. And just one drop of lemon juice. Maraschino. A little acrid,
    but I like that. With water: full, vivid, clean, ashy, smoky. A great
    distillate. Finish: long and brinier. Comments: a wine malt. Character,
    essence, location, belonging. A ta santé, Mark. SGP:457 - 88 points.
