Port Charlotte PC5 Evolution Single Malt Whisky Tasting Notes.
Colour: sunshine on warm copper.
Nose: like a thunderstorm, the aromas burst from the glass like some kind of hebrideam firecracker – exploding with
peat, bracken, heather roots, turf, oak, charcoal, marine pitch and gusting sea squalls – it’s flying!
The slipstream reveals sherry – mellow, rich and nutty; followed by bourbon – sweet vanilla and russian toffee.
Then you find yourself in the eye of the storm: the fruity aromas drift in – green apples, gooseberry, honeyed
limes then a brief respite from the returning storm. Which as the spirit warms on the back of the palate, brings
an infusion of all the elements that make this island’s whiskies so special.
Palate: All the aromas found on the nose are swept onto the palate with incredible peat-fire warmth, filling the heart
with passion. it’s young whisky and old skills in absolute harmony; not for the faint-hearted.
