  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Good, delicious, full-bodied to tasty, to lengths better than the 1st PC10, with which I could do nothing. 55 € I would find cheap, the current 70 € are very borderline, more I would not spend.
    • Nose
      pure: starts very dry, dusty, a bit ashy, then a splash of lemon and a salty breeze, honey later, orange, smoked bacon, a little farm, Rde ... who can breathe quietly 'a while a drop of water tickles a bit more orange, but does not really make the whisky any better, just a little thinner, cooler - you can leave it
    • Taste
      smoky-sweet, fat, full-bodied - orange marmalade, milk chocolate, honey, malt, bacon, burnt cake, with a little water (to 40-45%) is very tasty, but the bitterness comes out a bit stronger
    • Finish
      medium to long, first syrupy, then quite bitter (some plastic), then bacon, salt, pepper

    Pretty good. Good value purchase by my brother that lent me his bottle to try.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A very light nose with sweet smoky ash, vanilla, caramel.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Smooth sweet smoky ash, infused with apricots and other light fruits.
    • Finish
      86 86
      A little spicy, peaty, very light medicinal with bit of heat, but no bitterness or off notes.

    On the nose, creamy lemon, velvety, and light peat ... then with a little airing the medicinal side comes with oranges and some spices, it's fresh, emergency room washed!
    • Nose
      peat, lemon, damp wood, a little minty, back of cold ash and spices on white pepper.

    I was never a big fan of peated Bruichladdichs, and sadly I'm not over the moon for this one either. It's just the whiffs of sour margarine and sick that get me. The palate is better than the nose, but not much is added. Disappointed!

    (Please note that I opened the bottle not long before writing this, so it might improve with some time. Oxygen didn't do it any favours in the glass, though.)

    Edit: Leaving the bottle for a couple of weeks did a lot. The sour margarine was toned down, which let the fruitiness of the spirit and the smoked bacon malt shine. I originally scored it as 80, which at the time seemed a tad too generous, but now needs to be increased.

    Nope.. nope.. nope.. this sour, malty.. vaguely rotten smell that continues from the nose onto the palate, uncannily resembling fresh vomit is, alas, more on the side of unpleasant than on the side of interesting.. the extra creamy sweetness doesn’t help much.. it is a difficult dram to consider..
    at times, the strong herbals and the spicy vanilla seem to put it in another league, with peat subtly singing a tune in the background.. and they actually keep winning terrain as more time passes and the whisky sits in the glass..

    but the first sensation (i m not going to name it for sake of discretion) is still there to be found.. once seen, it cannot be unseen.

    tasted from a 5 cl sample.. so there s that!

  7. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The cuvée of different wine cask maturations work very well with this PC. The 50% abv. give it enough power. Very good, unfortunatly limited, "standard" bottling.
