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.

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.

Comments

I need to watch old videos of Oz Clarke to learn better descriptors - meanwhile I'll comfort myself knowing this is a decent dram.

Serge says:

Four stars and a half 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.
