Port Charlotte 10 Year

Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

5.0 out of 5 stars
Drier than an Ardbeg 10, both on the palate and on the nose. Floral, but less vegetal than Ardbeg. Smoke is sharper and grassier that Abg10, closer to a Caol Ila. Yellow fruit: honey melon, tangerines, orange peels, hint of blood orange, cloud berries. Hint of tobacco. whipped cream. Big vanilla. Fudge. Nice and salty. Sour bite. Nuttiness. Hint of black pepper on the finish. Horseradish. * Custard *. No real medicinality or presence of iodine here. Cream-like mouthfeel. Sweetens up with aeration. Well balanced. Luxurious.
