    Straight and tasty. I have notes of sweet apple rings made of wine gum and smoke. With lemon and vanilla. Straight out Bourbon Barrel. Delicious!

    Bought that at the distillery direct from the cask. This is a very fine Port Charlotte from a typical Bourbon Hogshead without any extras or finishes. And exactly this makes it simply great. Subtle citrus and vanilla notes everything packed in a yet smooth Port Charlotte peat expression. A nose which you just cant stop nosing, a complex palate and a long peaty smoky finish. love it. Doesnt need water, but likes it anyway. It needs time to evolve in the glass.

    First impression: alcohol, peat, .... nothing. Give it time though and sweeter tones appear after this fruit is appearing. With time very nice!
