    It's great. I particularly like that it is very intense in the taste. Its basic character is smoky, herbal and hearty, I like it very much. A whisky that has matured superbly in ten years. 89/100.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Smoke, part medicinal, part campfire, but more humid and medicinal and herbal. Juniper, lime zest, white wine notes in the background. Lemon juice, hearty, slightly salty. Very harmonious, very voluminous.
    • Taste
      90 90
      very hearty, very oily, very heavy, deliciously spicy and smoky. Like a good salami. A benevolent attack, it is immediately there and is present throughout the mouth. Lemon, umami, herbs, salt, pepper. Quite a strong, spicy smoke. Not a little sweetness, especially cereals.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Lemon peel, aromatic smoke and salt remain. A little smoked bacon and burnt sage.

    It was open a long time before I wrote Notes, so unfortunately it could have suffered a bit. Nevertheless tasty, I let the 88 points I gave it the first time I try it stand.
    • Nose
      First, the classic laddie notes clearly come to mind, slightly casual with burnt caramel, then a lot of orange, not even that much smoke, vanilla, sweet, vinous, very slightly hazelnut, pleasant, the smoke gets stronger over time
    • Taste
      Oily, floral, sweet, very sweet, cotton candy, ganache, orange, light smoke, good mouthfeel, the second sip is smokier, more intense
    • Finish
      Sweet, fruity finish, really hardly any smoke, unfortunately oxidation could have helped a little, but still quite pleasant

  6. etwa77 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    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!

    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.

  15. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It’s a delicate peaty with light sweetness. It starts with light peated aroma and moves to rottenness of ripe fruits, stewed apples, dry hay and allspices. The palate is peaty, sweet and slightly dry with notes of sweet fruits, oak and dry hay. The finish is middle, peaty, dry and spicy with notes of sweet fruits and wet wood. It has good balance between peatness and sweetness.

  16. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

      Rich, farmy peat. Dark honey, ripe white fruit, oak.
    • Taste

    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.

  19. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Begins beautifully "farm-like" with hay, earthy tones, silo and freshly strewed stables before salty, as well as sweet flavors follow. Grape marc, seaweed crackers, smoked malt and campfire. Beautifully put together.
    • Taste
      Soft and voluptuous at the start. Again farm-like after rainy hay and raw wool, but also after gooseberry and citrus zests. Over time, the saltiness gains while in the background a nice smokiness persists. Later also a sourish fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Long, complex and aromatic. Again "farm-like" but also with beautiful smoke flavors and a hint of apple.

    is to lemon-heavy - Port Charlotte 2007 CC: 01 hits more my picky smoker
    • Nose
      Sugar cake with cloves and cinnamon, cigarette ash, dusty, lemon, fresh mint, a touch of licorice, warms sweeter with beautiful balsam-like oak and some orange, quite intense
    • Taste
      beautiful texture, coastal flavor with some smoke, lots of ZItrone, honey, oak with licorice, cooling fresh mint occurs against ginger warmth and it always goes back and forth, the alcohol is not felt but the tongue is a bit numb, slightly bitter
    • Finish
      cooling, again cloves and sugar, full-bodied oak and slightly sour lemon

  24. 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

    bottled at 50% ABV, it's very well balanced and doesn't really need water at all. nice, a bit enigmatic as it takes a while for its full palate to reveal itself. overall a fine whisky: 85 points
    • Nose
      white grapes, sweet, licorice, some fresh citric notes, something chemical and medicinal (not unpleasant though)
    • Taste
      soft and sweet, then a sharp arrival, peat along with medicinal notes, salty and maritime, alcohol nip, sweet (dessert) wine
    • Finish
      medium long, syrupy, peat lingering through again at the end

  28. ahroeen scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    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.

    There is nothing to complain about at the 2nd edition. Something "exciting" he could have been. But the level is high, good 10yo from the island of the islands.
    • Nose
      Cool smoke, machine oil, tar, salt. Lemon peels and freshly squeezed orange juice make up the fruit portion. The smoke and the other "hard" aromas are modest at the beginning, but gain in strength over time and displace the fruits.
    • Taste
      At the beginning only slightly smoky, also predominantly fruity on the tongue. Then come thick smoke, salty bacon, fresh tar, sea salt and wild honey. In between, slightly bitter, but quickly vanishes again and turns into a pleasant woody note.
    • Finish
      Medium long, slightly dry, smoky, greasy, salty, only slightly lemonfruit.

    Very nice malt, nice complex and wonderful smoke flavor. I especially like the "mixture" of campfire smoke and medical smoke. The parameters are correct and the alcohol content is perfect for me. Only the price I find something high for a 10y. The money he is in my opinion, however, value.
    • Nose
      Nutty and slightly medicated smoke, maritime notes, some smoked bacon, grilled spices, sweetness, clear sherry influence, citrus fruit, little tobacco box, the 50% are not as strong in the nose as expected, with the time are still blackberries, raspberries and overripe bananas
    • Taste
      Surprisingly mild initially, then he pushes really nice, for me almost perfect start, ashes, campfires, burnt oranges, cake that was in the oven too long, malty, sweet
    • Finish
      Long, occupies the mouth, the smoke remains, some oak and sweetness, tingles something on the tongue, cinnamon

  33. Einfach_Supi scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Delicious
    • Nose
      Nutty smoke, slightly greasy, delicious potpourri of citrus fruits, honey water and fanta
    • Taste
      Mouthly sweet with a little water in the mouth, orange pieces with a hint of bacon and smoked, bitter orange oil, salty with a hint of foul fish ... typical beach in the autumn aroma
    • Finish
      mild fruity with some bitter orange

  34. Andytka3 scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    N- Open up with rich candy liquorice smokes with thick warm raisin oat meal. Wood staves and shavings with zings of rust and mineral, goes on with more beach notes of seashells, tarry rope, earthy and farm-y mud. Heavy choking smokes at times but with so much going on, I just can't move the glass away from my nose.

    P- Big entry with buttery texture, powerful spicy ginger, dried fruits and marmalade. Rounded with perfect weight supports the rich flavours with dash of brine and arising bonfire smokes lingers.  Tenderly rough, good stuff.F- Long lasting, smooth with buttery coats, as well echoed by an interesting dry mouthfeel in the middle. Masculine and solid, finely composed, a well sipping drams.

    from whiskyfun :

    Port Charlotte 10 yo ‘Second Edition’ (50%, OB, 2016) I wasn’t totally blown away by the first batch of this one but Port Charlotte is always a fun whisky to follow... Colour: Gold. Nose: All on farmyards and ash at first. I find Port Charlotte by far the farmiest of Islay whiskies. Goes on pleasantly with kelp, brine, oysters and some lemon juice. Some nice smoky barley notes after a while, like peated porridge oats if such a thing exists (if it doesn’t it damn well should!). With water: becomes a little lighter with water, some beach bonfire smokiness, really and ember like smokiness. A little more assorted citrus fruit and sea greens. Mouth: I think the 50% really works here, the delivery is powerful but not over the top and the farminess brings a nice consistency with the nose. Some green fruit such as gooseberry and green apple peelings. Twistings of white pepper, smoked tea, iodine and some wet wool and pebbles. With water: ah, this really works well with water. A lovely combination of something like sea water, iodine and lemon peel. Some peat oils, green fruit and a lithe tarry note as well. Finish: Good length, oily, citrusy and with a resurgent farmy echo. Comments: A very solid and idiosyncratic Islay malt. Very well made and put together in my opinion. One for friends and late nights. SGP: 558 - 90 points.

    A really nice malt.
    • Nose
      The beautiful and typical PC smoke rises directly with a neat sweetness in the room, the smoke is a mixture of log fire and medical note, very creamy and at first a sweetness of dates which drifts then strongly in the citrus direction, white peaches and a a whopping
      Portion of vanilla with a hint of coconut
    • Taste
      The alcohol gives an intense taste with a nice start but is very well balanced and binds beautifully, very creamy mouthfeel with wonderful clear smoke and delicate spice. When tasting 2, I still feel a blackberry on the palate. The mouthfeel stays round and nicely tuned
    • Finish
      In the finish, the seasoning of the barrel comes through more clearly and forms an interplay with the smoke and the sweetness that are always present. Very long finish after a few minutes, the forest fruits come back

      Average peat. Balanced, not super fiery, it emanates a certain sweetness. Some fruits emerge. More and more sweet. With a little water, more perfumed, even floral.

    • Nose
      Gentle and sweet peat smoke, vanilla crisp and after a few minutes nice fruity. Lemon, green apples, a handful of wild berries and wet leather. A touch of maritime saltiness completes the nose and makes you want more!
    • Taste
      Powerful start, the 50 volume percent push at the first moment properly. An incredibly sweet, slightly fruity and soft, almost creamy mouthfeel is enveloped by a fine cloud of smoke. Vanilla, cream toffee, some malt, blackberries and smoke cement a harmonious flavor foundation. Spicy oak notes and salt complete the balanced taste profile.
    • Finish
      Long, with a good dose of smoke, the vanilla sweetness and the light fruit notes are noticeably goodbye. A light oak spice sets the last accents in the midst of the now dominant occurring smoke.

    Colour: Gold

    Body: Full

    Nose: Lovely Sherry/Bourbon sweetness, red berry, cinnamon cake, white grape, musty sweetness. Not much smoke to be found here but the musty white grape notes are lovely.

    Taste: Lovely, peat/sweetness combo, great balance, great power, red berry and desert wine sweetness.

    Finish: Long length. More peaty now with white wine.

    I am just starting to get into my wines, which helps. This has a great level of everything, balance, complexity, sweetness, peatyness. Really has been expertly blended. 60% Bourbon, 20% Sherry, 10% French Red Wine, 10% Fortified French White Wine. A must buy!

    I really like that this isn't too heavy on the smoke and peat. It's there, and it is obviously an Islay dram, but it's also mild and non-intrusive, giving way to other aromas and flavors.
    • Nose
      Roasted peanuts, brambles and plenty of vanilla custard. The smoke and peat is there, some rubber as well, but not dominant at all. Hidden almost. There's some candied lemon and overripe banana too, as well as fudge. Quite lovely.
    • Taste
      Mild smoke and a touch of rubber, followed by milk chocolate, licorice, cloves and pepper. Some sal ammoniac too. Cigarette tobacco. Finally some tinned peaches.
    • Finish
      Long, slightly medicinal and smoky.

    Really really good! Just be honest, straightforward. A wonderful combination of great, sweet flavors, paired with smoke, salt, spice as a counterpoint. Even more than the Laddie Ten, his impression is lasting and present for a long time.

    • Nose
      Immediately you can see what makes the difference to the Laddie Ten: smoke! Quite discreet, very gentle. This reminds me of a fireplace that is being cheered on for the first time after the long summer. This subtle smoke reminiscent of the last winter, the last cold day, when you once again sat in front of the blazing log fire. This smoke obviously floats in my glass above one or two raspberries. I even mean hiding a slight touch of mint. But also here very present a vanilla, malty sweetness, which together with the light smoke forms the basic structure.

      There it is, the smoke! To perceive significantly stronger than in the nose. But still not as present as I suspected. It forms a perfect counterpoint to the creaminess of the dram. Did I just call the Laddie Ten creamy? Nope! THIS is creamy! So incredibly soft in the mouth, so sweet, so lovely sweet. Vanilla and malt are also the main impressions here. But the smoke knows how to prevent the whole thing taking a direction that would be borderline for me. Through it are still earthy, strong impressions that make a wonderful addition, a slightly salty note. After some time in the glass, the sweetness becomes more caramel. Do you know from your youth nor these sweets with the cow on it? Creamy-creamy caramel sweets - that's the PC 10. In addition, the spice, the smoke, the back is more present.
    • Finish
      Long and very present. The smoke sticks the longest. He is still there when the lush sweetness has finally disappeared.

    Notes by BRUICHLADDICH
    • Nose
      Initially there is such a clean open ozone character as the smoke is hidden. Gingerbread, raspberry vanilla, then the smoke creeps in with notes of clove, rubber and polish, but it does not over- power the gentle aromas of tinned peaches in syrup sweet red apples and brambles. Caramel and cinder toffee, digestive biscuits and lemon drops all sit under a halo of crisp peat smoke.
    • Taste
      The oak sweetness of vanilla and toasted malty bread are wrapped in heather smoke giving medicinal type notes of bog myrtle and bracken reminiscent of a summer’s day on the peat moss. There are layers in this whisky that take time to reveal themselves. To begin, cinder toffee and salted caramel with a lovely balance of honeysuckle and lily. Next comes treacle and soft fruit, apricot and pineapple with a dusting of icing sugar. The texture is luxurious yet with a little more bite than the Laddie 10.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky, this whisky was a delight to assemble. The complexity in the different types of oak and the way they come together in harmony to create a flawless spirit is a beauty to behold. A sophisticated, smouldering heat in the true Port Charlotte style.
