  1. holborndrinker did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "In August of 2016 internet whisky commentator Ralfy broke the Land Speed Record for a 250cc Turbo Pushrod Motorcycle.

    Bonneville is home to over 100 years of multiple vehicle world land speed records with 'wheels' as diverse as haulage trucks to rocket-ship streamliners.

    As part of an experienced and successful team, Ralfy had the support of skilled engineers and training by a current World Land Speed record holder.

    You can read back on the journey of Ralfy and his Team at saltywheels.blogspot.com.

    To commemorate the event, a number of private bottlings of Port Charlotte were made, of which this is one. As the record set was 74.7mph, you can see that this is one bottle of 74.7. Not a typo, there are actually 74.7 bottles!"

    A bottle with a specially engraved giant Glen Cairn glass was sold  by SCOTCH WHISKY AUCTIONS for £1,100 in February 2017.

    N: This is dirty, fruity & full on, so just up my street. Tex reckons it’s a Ledaig - good luck with that one. I found it more Paul John-esque [bottled by Cadenhead’s]. Even more luck required for that guess!
    T: Same again - that is, dirty, fruity & full on.
    F: Bone dry-ish malty funk.
    C: No one suspects Port Charlotte.
