The nose on the PC 10 is less peaty than you would expect. It has more of a motor oil nose with some very light fruit notes in the background. The palate has malt and some fruit, maybe even a touch of sherry. Only later in the palate do you get with that sharp, less aromatic peat that is the mainstay of the PC series and harkens back to the oily, peat of old Ardbegs. It drinks surprisingly easily for the proof. The finish is mostly peat on the nose and some sweet cereal grains and maybe a trace of sherry on the palate.
n: burnt paper smoke, lemon wax, wood paneling, black peppercorns
t: sweet peat smoke fill of black pepper and BBQ char. Bit of phenolic and medicinal flavours. Kinda one note with BBQ smoke meats, light lemon/citrus, and sea salt. Enjoyable but I'd like to have more complexity. [B.]
