Description

Port Charlotte single malts, peated to a heavyweight 40ppm, represent an ongoing exploration into the peat fired legacy of a great distillery, now silent.

Tasting Notes

Character: The texture is extraordinarily rich with a huge depth of character. The smouldering heat of peat fires pulls you into a whirlpool of islay flavours and aromas but with such finesse that you welcome the storm.
Colour: Gilded lily.
Nose: Opening with assertive waves of peat smoke. A swell of aromatics flood the senses with notes of iodine, salty canvas, crushed sea shells, charred oak staves, black pepper, paprika and leather tobacco pouches. The second wave brings vanilla, figs and soft plump dates, marinated pear, freshly milled malt, dark sweet toffee and cracked walnuts.
Palate: Waves of the sweetest, smoothest, warmest smokiest spirit that you have ever experienced. It is potent, focused and the flavours explode brilliantly onto the palate. Full of depth and complexity, the smokey sweetness of the barley contrasts beautifully with the marine freshness of the spirit and the richness of toffee and vanilla.
Finish: It’s long and heart-warming, arousing feelings of pride and passion. It brings courage and strength, honesty and faith to your very soul.

Taste Test

smoke comes scudding into the nose, vigorously, giving the joint effect of death by peat and acrid burnt toast; a youthful livewire delivery with a pretty suprising degree of maple syrup and treacle latching onto the phenols: the effect and balance is wonderful; pay attention and you'll spot some juicy fruit notes popping up here and there, too; the lack of major oak means the finish is fractionally lighter than it might be, but the smoke is now even pretty soft despite the late spice; rearrange the following two words: "giant" and "gentle".
