"Port Charlotte's signature peat first shows in the nose, quickly followed by some pleasant notes of sea breeze, ripe peaches, spices, cupcake icing, melted butter and cold tobacco. The mouthfeel is complex and vibrant with orchard fruits, citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and sweet ginger all wrapped up in a peaty/smoky cloud. An impressive depth of flavours. "
