Member Ratings and Notes

Nose: Sea breeze with a hint of butterscotch


Palate: Has the big flavor profile of previous PCs but doesn't attack the tongue so hard.  This one chills out.  Butterscotch and sulpher.  Bit of nail polish.  B+/A-


Yummy and very in line with the Port Charlotte releases so far. SO peaty and smokey, preserves the smell of true peat smoke almost perfectly. Better than PC6 and PC7, but not PC5 (at least as I recall it; a side-by-side seems to be in order). Yum! 

The first Port Charlotte I would choose to drink.  I think this is a sweet spot so far.  Great balance of all the peat with some good malty sweetness underneath. Reminds me of maybe an Ardbeg-Bowmore blend.  
Now here's a peated whisky I can enjoy.  It's got the right sweetness and very big peat, but without the campfire smoke I find a turn-off in a lot of recent peated releases.   Real good.
