N: Signature Port Charlotte peat - very organic, sweaty (like a gym bag), and slightly sweet with a touch of butterscotch. Slightly nutty, and what seems to be an almost butyric note, kind of fruits going slightly off.

 

P: Highly organic again; gym back, overripe fruit, light rubber. White nectarine; slightly buttery.

 

F: Organic, slightly malty and sweet. 

 

The slightly funky, seemed-butyric-to-me note kind of put this on shaky ground. There was another MoS PC floating around that was better on the nose.

Nose:  Very Port Charlotte notes, sharp peat, some bacon

 

Palate:  Unusualy sweet with some overripe mango, lots of PC-like peat, sweet wine.

 

Finish:  Peat.

 

Very Port Charlotte with a slight sherry influence.
