- Heerlijke PC dit, hopjesvla is iets wat er in me op komt, een beetje romig ook, jammie jammie
- Wow. Had the sensation to smoke a cigar on a bay in Cuba
Top cigar from Cuba, young and frsh tobacco's leaves
Ashy and smoky, intense and strong. Touch of salinity
Compact and delicate. Very long for such a young whisky

I must confess never to have heard of this independent bottler. Wonder what they have so bottled. The nose is creamy and fruity with peat of course, salty, vanilla and pretty much white fruit (young). Not great complex but nice. The same applies to the taste. Fruit, peat, pepper and a light axle. Long finish in line with this. Voila, a Port Charlotte that does earn 84! 84/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/04/15/een-blind-fulldram-session-vervolg/
- Serge says: " Port
Charlotte 6 yo 2002/2008 (57.6%, Streah,
cask #85, 281 bottles)
Streah is a new small indie bottler.
It seems that they have only bottled
this PC so far. Colour: straw. Nose:
this one is easier to nose when undiluted.
It’s a tad less smoky as well
as fruitier than the PC7, with more
‘direct’ coastal notes
(seaweed). More notes of tincture
of iodine and vanilla as well. With
water: the difference is exactly the
same. More fruits (pears, apples,
gooseberries) and more ‘fresh’
notes (kelp, grass, fresh walnuts.)
Less smoke. Mouth (neat): extremely
close to the PC7, almost as strong,
with a bigger smokiness this time.
With water: we’re extremely
close to the PC7 again. Maybe just
a tad fruitier again, and maybe also
a tad more peppery and less ‘fat’.
Finish: long, clean, really half-peaty
half-fruity (green apples), with a
very peppery aftertaste. Comments:
one year younger than the PC7 and
one can feel that from the added fruitiness.
But it’s great whisky anyway.
SGP:347 - 87 points."
you cant really tell that it is so young without knowing it, you rather think 12-15 yrs... great stuff
