Member Ratings and Notes

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.


N: Pork jerky, terriyaki, medicinal, metallic. I'm a fan. Gets better the more I smell. 

P: Way too hot without H20. With it: sweet, fruity, vanilla, nutmeg, kind of egg noggy.

F: Pretty perfect. Long, leaving little hints from all the experiences of the palate.


Another nice Malts of Scotland.
